Anyone else on Itch.io?

#1 Post by fioricca » Wed Oct 29, 2014 9:20 pm

A few days ago, itch.io -- which, in my opinion, is a great alternative to hosting sites with pop-ups like Mediafire -- rolled out an amazing feature called Games Feed that lets users keep track of people they choose to follow. I'm actually also digging the global and featured games feed. To my knowledge, the visual novel devs on itch.io are:

detective
Hazel-bun
Hijiri
Leedalangin
[url=http://traumendes_madchen.itch.io/]Traumendes Madchen[/url]
and myself (Route/0).

I'd like to follow more visual novel devs there as it's sometimes hard to keep track of updates here. Is there anyone I've missed who's there on itch.io too?

I am! Although after seeing all of your profiles, I feel like I should really spiff mine up...

I have an account there, but nothing posted yet. I really do like itch.io for indie development and gamejams, so I hope to put up something soon.

I have one as well, though I don't really know how to customize it or what. :) I only made one for the Monster Mash a few months ago. Anyway, looking at all your profiles... ooooh, they're all so interesting! ^^ How does one follow someone on itch.io? :)

It’s pretty easy: you have to log in and open a profile (I opened yours for example purpose :wink: ).

See the little button up in the right corner ? Click and it’s done! :)

Thank you for introducing it! ^^

I've subscribed to everyone thus far. :D

Here's my lowly page. Nothing there just yet, but I hope to be working on a Game Jam in the near future.

Hello, sorry if this is the wrong category.

I create a site called itch.io, I noticed a lot of visual novels posted here are being uploaded to itch.io as well. I think that's awesome! So I'm assuming at least some of you have heard of itch.io before. If you haven't, it's an open indie game marketplace with a focus on giving developers control of the way they distribute their content. It works for either free or paid games, downloadable or embedded. It's also very donation friendly, everything is "pay what you want" above the minimum where the minimum can even be 0.

The site also helps host game jams, you may have seen the NaNoRenO 2015 page there. Also here's a link to all the visual novel games that have been tagged: http://itch.io/tag/visual-novel (if you're already uploading stuff please tag it!, it helps with the game recommender)

I just wanted to create this topic to say thanks to those who have been uploading games, and to collect any feedback that you might have floating in your head. In addition to coding the site I also spend a lot of time playing and promoting the content on the site. I think it's very important getting the smaller game developers more visibility, and I do what I can by tweeting/sharing games or coding features to make it easier for the developers.

In any case, any thoughts, ideas, comments, complaints, etc. are greatly appreciated. I'll try check this topic regularly but if I don't seem to be around feel free to bug me on twitter, @moonscript, or just email me leafot@gmail.com

Thanks!
