As a creator, itch.io gives you the ability to design a page where people can download any projects you've uploaded. You can optionally put a minimum price on your page (which can be 0), giving people the opportunity to pay you what they think you deserve.
Action DetailsRequirements and how-to articles for itch.io's action:
RequirementsYou need this to get it done:
You need this to get it done:
The title of your project.
You can customise the URL for your project. (By default, this is: https://[username].itch.io/[title])
Short Description or Tagline
Shown when itch.io links to your project. Avoid duplicating your project's title.
Select the type of content which you are uploading (Games, Game Assets, Game Mods, Physical Games, Soundtracks, Tools, Comics, Books or Other.)
Kind of Project
Select how your files can be run/downloaded (HTML, Flash, Java and Unity files can be embedded in your project page to be played in-browser, all other file types must be downloaded.)
Select what the release status of your project is (Released, In Development, On Hold, Cancelled or Prototype.)
You can choose from three different types of pricing for your project: $0 or donate, Paid, or No Payments. Note that your account must have payment configured if you want your project to be paid.
You can upload your profile file(s) directly from your computer or from Dropbox. You can also add a link to an external file and itch.io will keep track of how many times it is downloaded. Note that the file size limit is 1GB.
This will make up the content of your game page. Basic text formatting available, including image and video embedding.
Select the category that best describes your game (e.g. Action, Puzzle, Strategy, etc.) (You can pick additional genres with tags.)
You can add up to 10 tags to your project page - these are keywords which someone might search to find your project. Avoid using the genre or platforms which you already provided.
App Store Links
If your project is available on any other stores (Steam, Apple, Google Play, Amazon, Windows) itch.io will link to it.
You can change how itch.io refers to your project by providing a custom noun. Leave blank to default to: 'game'.
Choose whether you would like your project to have a comments section, a dedicated community discussion board, or none.
Visibility & Access
Choose whether your project page is a draft (only those who can edit the project can view the page), restricted (only owners & authorised people can view the page) or public (anyone can view the page.) By default, this is set to Draft, and it's highly recommended to keep it as Draft/Restricted until it is ready to be made public.
The cover image is used whenever itch.io wants to link to your project from another part of the site.
