You may want to reformat your ellipsis after "Saving..." to actually be three periods - the extra spacing looks weird compared to the previous textbox.

It is actually three periods in the file, but I think the browser is automatically making it into a special character without my permission, so I'm not sure what can be done

Definitely one of the comic's best pages. 😜

Off the top of my head, maybe using an Ascii code for one of the periods would fix the issue? Or something else that would disturb the autocorrecting (perhaps a "zero-space character")?

. . .didn't cartridge games have internal saving systems that was why the game was all on one cartridge how the heck did you get a multi-cartridge system for this?

and yes I know this is a webcomic it's just this is kinda bugging me

the super nezoom had hard restrictions on cart sizes, so since alastere was such a large game, they had to split it across carts
but it had sufficient internal system memory that a savefile could be transferred between carts via a small program that didn't need a cart active to run - it was used first to enable features in other games, where you'd load one game up, use the transfer, then load the second game up and it'd do something neat in the second game, usually one that came out before
developers did some neat things with it, but the alastere devs were the first that actually tried a multi-cart game proper using the feature
