Does steam keep your game saves in the cloud?

Just got a new computer and wanted to pick up Amnesia: The Dark Descent where I left off on my old computer but I only have an option for a new game. Is there a way to access my old save game or are they only stored locally?

Yes for most games. Not sure about yours.

I think if you log off too fast, your game won't goto the cloud.

Not all games on steam have cloud saves.. Amnesia does not have cloud saves. The store page will tell you if the game supports cloud saves. In general, when you exit the game, if you see it "syncing" then that means it's uploading the save to the cloud, or sometimes just the game settings (I think mostly if it supports the cloud it supports games saves as well but maybe not always).

Oh ok. Thanks guys. Guess I'll be finishing it on my old laptop then. Oh well.

Couldn't you just manually move the save to your new computer?
