Useful Console Commands

The console can be accessed through the ~/` key on the Steam version. It is not available on the Gamepass version. Be careful when using console commands, as they can mess up your save! Use them at your own risk and make a backup of your saves.

  • AddBackground bg/RemoveBackground bg – in order to add a background, type “AddBackground bg” and press tab to cycle through the available backgrounds. The game will freeze if you add them before the moment where you choose them in game (conversations with Big Jorg, Lorenz, etc.) After adding too many backgrounds, the game will freeze if you access the “Ex Libris” journal tab (pressing C), but every other journal tab will work fine. You can remove backgrounds by typing “RemoveBackground bg” and cycling through them with tab again.

Game Saves

Saves are located in %USERPROFILE%Saved GamesPentiment. The game autosaves on 8 different slots at regular intervals. Every time you want to keep one of your saves to go back to later, just copy/paste it in a directory named after that moment in the game, and when you want to go back to it, just copy/paste it back in the main directory (don’t forget to backup your current saves as well).

Then in the main menu, click on “new game”, then on the blue arrow next to your save in order to access the autosave slots.
