Blender through steam does not make exit save.

I swear to god i thought my ass was saved through the autosaving exit file on blender, but apparently not when you accidentally exit steam and it kills blender and all its babies and murders your innocent project that you have been working on for the past hour. yes. i want to cry a little. i will be uploading my anguish soon and linking to it in this forum. i was recording the whole time.
