itch.io news

As always, we've made a bunch of improvements to the itch app (as always!) up to v. 18.10.01 including:

  • support for large file size games (such as Aven Colony)
  • Chrome 53 support
  • more reliable downloads

And much more! Check out all the patch notes here: https://github.com/itchio/itch/releases/

Improved Kickstarter Integration

We're making it easier for developers using Kickstarter to integrate with itch.io. Now you can import your KS CSV and divy up particular keys for different backers.

Configurable recipients when sending emails

We've also made it so you can send different emails to different groups of buyers. You can now choose what groups of people to contact:

  • All buyers
  • Anyone who has claimed access with a download key
  • Individual reward groups
  • Individual download key groups

This update works great in conjunction with itch.io refinery and the Kickstarter import mentioned above. Additionally, for jam hosts, we've released the same email tools that previous only games had.

More information about both of these features here!: http://blog.itch.io/post/149137473514/improved-buy...

That's all for this one, folks- see you next week!
