If it's any consolation Daniel, we did the same thing and released our game at the worst time with everyone at GDC too.  Like you, sadly, we couldn't make it to the event. Glad you've had such a positive experience on Itch.io, as we have had too.

We were worried about releasing our game, you see some of the great work on here and it's mind blowing.  Worse, our game is a Twine "interactive fiction" and when you see these 2D RPG's or full 3D games, well, that was scary. Actually though, people have been really receptive and welcoming which is awesome, and there have been quite a few downloads which we're super happy about.

Daniel, loved your game, great fun to play, had to rate it :)

Hey thanks, I love to hear from other developers! Indeed, it can be scary to release a game when you see such high standards everywhere, but I suppose that every developer goes through the same feelings, at least those who care about making their games as good as possible.

By the way, checked your game. Amazing professionalism in all details, plus a great story with a great ambiance. Rated it! If you ever decide to host this or any other titles as WebGL games here on itch , make sure to let the people at /r/WebGames know about it. Got more than 2000 views from there alone!

Thanks for the heads up on that r/sub :)  And for the rating too!
