Ahh, thanks for the clarification Slashie. That's an important point!

We've gotten a few requests for a feature like this, but I doubt it'll be ready in time for next Friday. That said-- you can manually change what percentage of each sale goes to itch.io from your dashboard and then change it back at the end of the day.
I've included some comics in previous posts like this (including Lady of the Shard (which is amazing)). Unfortunately there are always more projects that I'd like to include in posts like these, but don't have the space/time for. If you have any other comics that you're super into you should post links to them here!
Mmm, that's certainly a possibility. I'll look at some games, and maybe something will come of it. That said, I feel like if I can recommend a demo I could also recommend the full game. Unless the full game isn't out yet (like Stoneshard Prologue this week).
We believe that great games are worth supporting. In handpicking this bundle we wanted to make sure we set a price that was fair both to the developers who have spent months or years developing these projects, and the customers who are interested in supporting them. I believe strongly in all of the games we featured as a part of this promotion, and I think getting them for 75% off is a great deal.
There's a lot in Steam Marines 2, and didn't get to dig into it as much as I would have liked before writing this. There's a good chance it'll be on the list next week. (Also it's very good and everyone who sees this should check it out)
To build on this, I think you touch on a really valuable point that I didn't mention in the initial post: Treat your customers like people/with respect. Sure it's obvious when you see it written out but at the end of the day, the reason you're uploading a game to itch.io (or anywhere, but we're obviously the best :P) is because you want someone to see it. I think that the further we stray from and obscure the idea that a game is a conversation between player and creator the worse off we are.
