hmm totally offtopic but no idea how to msg you otherwise: do you actually do steam? i don’t have paypal and i dislike them in general, and also their interface/page when you’re not supposed to need an account… half of the time (well, in the only shop where i needed stuff i didn’t wanna renounce to and had to pay thru paypal), the UI tried to “force” you to open an account, refusing to show the normal page where you could pay as a non-customer and showing you only the register page… sometimes for hours/days in a row until they “fixed” it. also i like having my stuff together in my steam library, because the only games i download from itch are the free and demo ones, due to the paypal issue, so no point getting the itch client just for demos and minigames i’ll delete a few hrs later…
I do not do steam, unfortunately. (I might in the future, but there are no plans to do so right now.)
You do not need to pay anything to download the ZAGS demo. You can also pay on itch.io through stripe (instead of paypal) I think?
You can download the game on itch and then add it to steam locally. (You don't need the itch client to download games from itch, even the paid ones.)
(I'm with you on paypal... I don't really like them as a payment processor either.)
yeah steam has pros… and cons. especially with lgbtq+ content, not easy to pass - unlike schoolgirl hentai, and sniper games :/ hmm you might be right about stripe, when i test pick card payment i see a stripe logo at the bottom.. worth checking. aah true i forgot about adding external games to the steam library, i only did it once, just hafta remember how. wasn’t there sth about a steam key? and yup, zags demo is already downloaded ^^
In Steam, on the bottom left, you can choose "Add A Game" > "Add a Non-Steam Game" and choose an EXE on your computer, so you can have any game you download from itch imported into and playable from Steam.
When you're checking out on itch.io, you'll see a screen with two options at the bottom: "Pay with Paypal" and "Pay with card". If you choose "Pay with card", it'll be processed by Stripe instead of paypal.
