Any plans at all or any consideration for steam?
No current plans at this time. I am committed to making the game available under a pay-what-you-want model so that people who can't afford the game's $10 price tag can still pay, to making the game available without a downloader/updater client, and to making the game available without requiring players to make an account. Steam does not offer/allow any of these.
I really appreciate the quick response! props to you for the model you've chosen and sticking by! I completely understand and support it
(sorry for the noob question: how does one keep up with updates to the game after buying? do i just need to keep on eye on this page or will be an email every time? only been on itch.io a few times)
Absolutely cute and fun looking game! (saw a PCgamer article about the game)
Thanks for your kind words :)
Itch will send emails about updates, but I think that's only for large announcements rather than every minor patch.
In 1.0-18, I added an in-game notification that will appear in the main menu when a new version is available. The first time you run the game with 1.0-18 or newer, you should see a prompt asking if you'd like to allow to the game to check for new versions. This can be changed in the System Settings menu at any time.
Alternatively, Itch has its own downloader/updater client that you can use. There's more information on that over here.
Hope that helps!
