What is this ffs :)
I just don't know these days ,fake news ,real game ,not a game ? who knows. :P
Be wary of these requests ,they used to pop up a lot in the comments section of steam when a new game was about to get greenlit .
People offering to help with getting your game published or whatnot.
I remember reading a few articles about them , not always kosher or in your best interest.
Not saying that's the case here but just saying....
I inquired about this before in relation to a few other games here that had the same problem.
According to Itch Admin it's the dev's fault for not using the correct settings when listing their game.
Yeh ,Life Is Strange 2 is like that , it's like a 2 year gap between playing it on release day and actually finishing the game ,just insane.
But even then it will probably get a load of update patches in the months following :)
I tend to ignore games like that .
I remember one called Blues and Bullets ,never got past the first one or two episodes ,studio imploded and left behind a half finished game.
Wouldn't have happened at the rate it does now if not for this "digital age" we're living in.
Though i would say ,Itch is sort of THE place for something like this ,a chance for a dev to get feedback by dropping a free download for gamers to try.
