Are you on Windows by any chance?
The game works properly for me, but after the character creation it writes a file named heroinesquest-\hqrecord.dat in my save folder. On macOS that works, but I can imagine that on Windows it may not like the \ in the name.

The issue is in our file path mapping code. In this case the script asks the engine to create a file with a path that has two \ (it is $SAVEGAMEDIR$\\hqrecord.dat) and while we correctly strip the first one, the second one is not removed.

I pushed a fix for this issue. I think it should now work on Windows as well.
