Hey all,

For those who are new to Itch.io, I'll share a lesson I learned during the 7DRL2016 compo: NEVER rename your game's zip file that you upload or you lose the tracking of downloads!

You can upload your game file to Itch.io as often as you want, but just make sure the name of your zip file (or however it's packaged), is the same each time.
