How to delete game saves? (uninstalling didn't work)

Hello all,

I'm wondering where I can delete a game's saved progress so I can have someone else experience it. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, and despite the message saying saved progress will be erased, it started me back right where I was. The game I'm talking about is Dark Days, and I haven't tried any other games that have this problem. I'm not sure where local save files are stored on my PC; I've tried My documents/Games and looked through the Oculus files too with no luck. I'm running Windows 7.

    Try C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\
    AppData\ is a hidden folder, you might need to show hidden folders in explorer.
    It's problably hidden somewhere within Local\ or LocalLow\ or Roaming\
    I don't own the game so I can't verify, but that's usually where Oculus game saves the savegames.

    @KNP54 Wow thanks! I should've thought to look in Appdata but you saved me a ton of trouble! I greatly appreciate it. I have played around with saves for other games in Appdata but I didn't see Dark Days or their publisher/developer listed as an folder. It was found under Appdata/local/MOTEL. I wouldn't have even thought to click into the file tree but thanks for settling things, especially on a forum with not much activity.
