New releases

Boiling Bolt by Plug In Digital & Persistant Studios [$6.99 Limited Closed Beta, Windows]

Boiling Bolt is a twin-stick shooter where you dodge and shoot on a 2D plane with beautiful 3D graphics while piloting a ship that contains the mystical Boiling Bolt fragment, and it's launching its closed beta exclusively on itch.io! Persistant Studios are utilizing refinery to do a limited beta leading up to the games launch in December- there's only 250 keys available at first and the price will go up at launch so get it early!

Home Improvisation by The Stork Burnt Down [$9.99, Windows Mac, Linux]


After going from game jam winner to in-development for over a year, Home Improvisation is finally out! If you're not familiar, its a game about building furniture without instructions with your friends and it's pretty wild. It includes online multiplayer, HTC Vive support and a Steam key!

Highlighted games

Sacramento by Dziff [Free, Windows + Mac]


"🌿 Sacramento is a game about capturing fleeting memories before they fade. You'll wander through an ephemeral and uncanny landscape, flashback of moments I gathered on sketchbooks over the years.

Drift aimlessly across time & space, enjoy the quiet while it lasts as life will soon resume its course."

Indigo Child by Metkis [Free, $2.99 for Source Code, Windows + Mac]

"Play as the mystical Indigo Child and save some souls while wandering through the forest. The game is designed to work with both keyboard and 360 controller. It is a gamejam style experience. If you pay more than $2.99, you get access to the Unity3D source files."

Glitched by EnHouse Studios [Free Demo, Windows + Mac]


"GLITCHED is a mystery and exploration RPG coming to PC, Mac, and Linux. The game features traditional turn based combat with a little bit of spice but will primarily focus on the story and how you change it. "

Dustforce by Hitbox Team [$9.99, Windows, Mac, Linux]


"Clean up the world with style! As an acrobatic janitor, you are an adept force against dust and disorder. Leap and dash off walls and ceilings, and deftly traverse precarious environments. Cleanse each level swiftly and thoroughly to achieve mastery in this 2D sweep-'em-up platformer."

The Real Texas: Dusty Skies Edition by Kitty Lambda [$14.99, Windows + Mac]


"The Real Texas is an action adventure game that plays like a mashup of Zelda: Link to the Past and Ultima VI.

Sam, an ordinary Texas rancher, is on holiday in England when he steps through a blue portal and into a purgatory dimension, Strange.

The Real Texas - Dusty Skies Edition includes:

  • The Real Texas, a 2012 action RPG, now with an improved framerate
  • Cellpop Goes Out At Night, an all-new mini-sequel"

Handsome MR. Frog by Cowboy Color [$0.99, Windows]

"Handsome Mr. Frog, whose hat was jacked by a bunch of no good, less attractive normies, sets out on a new-school arcade adventure through four worlds in order to get his steez back."
