Typewriters play a very vital role from the beginning of a Resident Evil game. It helps you as it’s the only saving progress. So, the story starts somewhere in the ’90s which lent itself to some great survival horror vibes.

Save Your Progress in Resident Evil Village
Using a typewriter is the best and foremost way to save your progress. You should or you can stop and save as much as you want to at a particular typewriter. Finding typewriters is not easy as they are very few and far between rooms.
The only place where you can find a typewriter is in the Vicinity of the Duke. Village’s have a checkpoint system, saving at a typewriter and triggering story beats and major events. In the event of demise, you will be returned to the most recent typewriter you saved at or the recent checkpoint.
You can double checkpoints through autosaves and then can load your game through the menu. Personally saying, Ending a play session without a manual save at a typewriter isn’t much comforting
