The only recourse is to contact support for a refund.

You don't have enough lgbtqia+ content.

Itch.io tries to show you what you want to see.

Yes

Maybe you should give him more than one hour to get back to you, he could be sleeping or at work for all that we know...

And just maybe he doesn't want to publish his e-mail either, as I know the spambots will just love it.

Personally I'd be weary of buying anything where the author states that supporting through Patreon is cheaper than buying the updates as that suggest that the priority is on separating you from your money by getting you to pay for an unfinished product rather than delivering a good product.

The way most games work here is that you you pay once and that gets you lifetime access to that game and any future updates.

Technically you buy a project and you get lifetime access to all files that are on that project.

Most sellers consider one page = one game and you get access to all future updates of the game. However it is up to the creator to decide and if someone wants to sell updates as a separate project that is possible.

There's also some danger involved as some less scrupulous people remove all files from a page, even if you paid for it!

To summarize: You buy access to a "project", a project contains a set of files that the owner can change at any time, adding more versions or even removing all files.

Practically you are safe as the owners can issue a DMCA complaint to take your content down. If you do not contend this takedown notice all that happens is that your game gets taken down.

If you do contend the takedown notice they can sue you into oblivion and back...

You are not allowed, but most likely no one will care enough to action it.

I'll make a report to support@itch.io, aint making any promises on their behalf though.

But direct links to a game, even if taken down, still seems to work.

Well Aisu Kuriimu Simulator is a classic

What a coincidence. I too have created the best game on itch.io

Itch can handle games up to 32 GB. However convincing them that your game is worth that much is going to be difficult.

We do not know what their guidelines are for how much space a game is supposed to make. However the 2GB they give out to everyone goes a long way.

No one here can help, I would advice asking for help in Help wanted or offered if you are unable to properly optimize your game size.

Fairly certain he hasn't.

His previous game spends about 400 MB on what can be generously described as "a few minutes of cinematic".

My RPG senses tells me he spent 4 GB on about 10 minutes of cinematic.

Itch can handle games up to 32 GB. However convincing them that your game is worth that much is going to be difficult.

I suppose that if your game was one the most top grossing games you'd get this no questions asked, but for a new game creator having yet another prerendered CG adult visual novel, aint gonna happen.

Itch.io the prerendered CG adult visual novel cesspool....

Itch provides up to 2 GB which can at their discretion be increased. All they are asking for is 10% of your gross revenue. This is extremely generous and 2 GB goes a long way in the hands of competent people.

We do not know what their guidelines are for increasing upload limits, or even if there are any. My belief is that it is up to each agent to decide based on such factors as:

  • How you word your request
  • How much effort you put into your game page
  • How reasonable the game size is
  • How generous they are feeling today
  • Your posting history
  • How stressed they are

Reasonable request + Politely worded e-mail + Long Queue => Upload limit increased no questions asked

what about butler? It'll allow you to upload up to 2 GB and also offers incremental patches.

In practice, if you type the minimum processor is Blarg, and you have a Blorg, your average user will not know if the Blorg is faster than the Blarg.

I use CPU score and GPU score when I post my minimum requirements, because a user with 1500 CPU score will probably know that it is better than 1000. But most people here probably don't know their CPU / GPU score either....

He turned into a werebed.

Yeah sure, we'll see if this even works.

As Eldwood posted above this is a very weird combination, but it would be fun to pull it off.

I was thinking of running a game bundle, the theme of the bundle being shame, games you made but you are embarrassed to say.

This bundle will essentially put a price on your dignity. We're aiming for about for 0.25$ per game distributed equally, or as close to it as itch will allow us.

Requirements:

  • Must be paid - No 100% sale shenanigans
  • Thick skin on the part of the developer(s)
  • Must be a game playable on PC
  • Consent to use your motivation in "promotional materials"

To participate post a link to your game as well as a motivation as to why the game belongs in the bundle.

Perhaps looking into what the upload cap is was part of the curriculum?

To upload your project using butler here's a template you can use:

butler push --if-changed <your folder here> storyboredartist/<yourgamenamehere>:win

(Assumes windows game)

We do not know what their guidelines are or even if there are any. The only help you can get from here is this: Fix your game, you get 2 GB no questions asked, Arcane mess looks like it would fit within 200 MB.

If you rate the projects with a 1 the platform should figure out that you do not wish to see that kind of projects. Also do rate projects you like so itch can show you more of it.

Itch is probably not going to do anything as the tools available for developers are already more than sufficient.

This happens when there is no download for your current OS.

Tag your download with the appropriate OS and file type.

It can take a long time for credit card fraud to be detected, as such a refund request can take a long time to get submitted if the credit card was stolen or fraudulently used.

Sounds interesting but I don't have twitter.

Sorry about the boss difficulty. I am however pleased to see that your frame rate has improved a lot in now.

Thanks for the feedback. You seem to be playing an older version before we added auto detection on graphics and as such the system requirements are quite high. This version I considered to be too hard, as such the final boss's damage has been reduced. It's an early version so after you defeat that boss the game is over, you pretty much saw all of it by now. The main purpose of this early version is to gather feedback and find out if the gameplay is engaging enough to make more levels.

The jumping part is difficult due to your low control. A future update will give you more control over your jumps.

Checkpoints might be coming. The issue with checkpoints is that they cheapen deaths and remove from the tension if you know you can just retry an infinite amount so there needs to be a balance.

You can pay with a debit/credit card as well...

This game has been on my todo list for over a year, and I've finally managed to get it to a state where it is playable. I would really appreciate some input into whether is is worth continuing or not.

Mainly the questions I wanted to ask are:

Where you having fun?

Would you like to see more levels?

Gameplay wise I was going for a bit of a horror lite platformer adventure, a sort of mix between a few different genres.

For those of you unfamiliar with the term "horror lite", this usually refers to games and movies that take inspiration from horror but still keeps it family friendly. I'm sorry it's the best explanation I've got so far.

The game is totally free from jump scares.

Pretty vague but maybe try Foxes and Cows?

How well does that fit your criteria?
