Selling games on itch.io?

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Sat Dec 19, 2015 11:43 am

Hi everyone.

I was just wondering if anyone has tried selling access to their game via sites like itch.io?
In theory it's easy to setup and there are a lot of games on there... but so far I haven't had a single sale.
I've got trailers, demos, tutorials... I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong.
Any tips?

Not trying to sound mean. Just because you put it on Itch doesn't mean you will instantly get sales. Just like with any other game, you have to advertise/market your game. Also high quality popular games will always be on the frontpage of Itch just like any other game portal and they will be getting most of the sales.
