How to Tell Time in Roots of Pacha

This prehistoric games has a unique time-telling tool.

Knowing what time it is in games like Roots of Pacha is key to operating your day-to-day schedule. Going to bed before you pass out is an obstacle in the game, just like in similar titles like Stardew Valley. The difference is that in Roots of Pacha, time is not clearly displayed in numerals. Here's how to tell the time and avoid passing out at 2am, like I did numerous times!

How to Figure Out the Time in Roots of Pacha

Unlike similar games (Stardew Valley, My Time at Sandrock, and more), Roots of Pacha does not show any numerals for the time. Each day ranges from 6am to 2am, with the goal being for you to get into bed before the day ends at 2am. I realized that the dot placement above the tree means the current time. So the white dot closer to the right, you are at the end of the night, and the ones at the beginning represent the opposite (morning). This can be confusing to some new players, but you'll eventually get used to this system with more playtime.

How do you Save the Game in Roots of Pacha?

You need not worry about saving your game progress in Roots of Pacha. This is because the game will automatically save for you at the end of each day. You cannot choose to save Roots of Pacha intentionally because there is no option to manually save the game. The one major downside to this is that you'll need to finish an entire day to save, making it hard to play in short sessions.

Does Roots of Pacha have autosave?

Roots of Pacha has one autosave for every in-game day you play. The game will automatically save as the day transitions from night to morning. No other autosave occurs throughout the day, so be sure not to try exiting the game during the middle of the day. If you do, you'll lose all progress from that day.
