    I originally played halfway through Ori on the Xbox One when it first came out. To prep for the new game I decided to hop into the Definitive Edition with Game Pass. Upon launching the game I got an error saying that my data couldn't be synced to the cloud right now. I could either try again, which resulted in the same error, or continue offline. I continued offline and played the game for a few hours. I was still receiving achievements and they show up on my Xbox Live profile.

    Smash cut to today when I want to play again. This time I do not get the cloud error. However, when I get to choose my save file there is nothing there! I saw that the save is usually located under my local app data, but there isn't even a folder for Ori! I then thought maybe that I could sign out of my profile from the Xbox console app, but then the game forces you to sign back in anyways. Am I to believe that because I continued in offline mode the game just didn't save any of my data? That seems insane.

    Does anyone have any other thoughts here? Should I just wait for the sequel and let this go?

    i played through this game a couple months ago on game pass for PC, and occasionally i would start up the game and my saves would be missing. however i was able to fix this by just closing the game and relaunching it.

    I had this occur today for me, when I'd launch the game and saw no save data due to cloud syncing issues. Simple re-launch fixed it for me too.

    If you did lose it permanently...eh, I don't know. Just a personal preference really if you want to play it again or not, I'd say. Not really a long game, took me about 7 hours and I switched the difficulty to easy at one point to save myself from too much frustration by making the tedious combat easier and have checkpoints during some of the chase scenes.
