A lot of people have trouble with this at first.Originally Posted by Silent-Sniper
Okay, so when you died, what you did was select "Save game and quit" or whatever, instead of selecting, "Load game".
When you selected "Save and quit game", that brought you back to the title screen, and saved your stats, but not your game. Meaning you're the same level you were when you died, but you have to restart from the beginning of 72 hour mode, which I'm thinking wasn't that far from where you are, if you're new to the game.
(( D: Man, this is slightly hard to explain. xP Hopefully you get it.))
Either way, if you want to keep on going with the game you're playing when you die, you have to save somewhere, and then when you die, press "Load game" and load from where you last saved. It'll give you the stats you had when you saved there, though. And if you don't know where you can save, it tells you. You can save on the couch in the Security Room, or any restroom in the mall.
If you don't understand, I'll try and explan again later when I've been awake for at least fifteen minutes. xP
