Oh, I didn’t think itch.io app requires to package games in such way. I actually use butler for all my games and it does exactly that. But it packages everything in a zip archive, and those commonly store everything at the top, so it won’t surprise anyone.

In that case you could use zip for the Linux version as well. Or give butler a try, it’s actually a very nice way to manage itch.io releases. ;-)

I don't use zip for Linux release because it doesn't preserve file permissions on executables.. at least I thought it didn't.

I actually already added an item to my to do -list for finally checking out Butler :)

It actually does for me. I prefer tar myself, but seeing that itch favors zip I think it’s okay to use it. It’s kind of universal.
