There are points in the plot and gameplay in Ori and the Blind Forest when the game will stop the player to save all of their progress up until that point. Players can get by on only using these predetermined saving points, but there’s a way for them to create their own. They are called soul links .
Player can create soul links in Ori and the Blind Forest to save the game whenever they would like. Maybe there’s a significant point in the plot that the player wants to set a checkpoint at so it can be returned to later. The only issue with setting up soul links in Ori and the Blind Forest is the process of creating them.
A soul link is actually made by the player so they need all of the resources needed to make one. The resources needed to make soul links are quite rare throughout Ori and the Blind Forest. Therefore, it’s wise for the player to only create a soul link in Ori and the Blind Forest when they believe it’s going to help them later in the game.
