I have a payout in review since 20 days, another since 12 days. Is it normal ? Before I don't remember having to wait so long.

Yes, but even the censored part is nothing omitted, only the romance CG instead of being full naked, the characters are still dressed. That's the only difference and maybe a few lines of texts describing the scene (I don't remember exactly now).
Buying here you also get a free Steam key, so you get both versions in any case :)
Can you send me the save before it shows up? You can find the savegames in a folder called saves in the install directory. Thanks!

That's strange since demo and full are basically the same code. However Mac has many problems recently, check this thread in my forums:
A specific example:
- I do maybe a beta/alpha/pre-order for a game and set the full download for $10
- people buy that for $10
- after X months I raise price from $10 to $15 (as often some developers do) as the game gets near completion
Question: people who paid $10 will still get access to that item? or they need to pay the difference ($5)? or they need to pay again $15? It's not clear to me how this works :) thanks
Yes, maybe I'll add a pop-up help in the final game. But in practice you have PLENTY of time to do anything, unless the quest explicitly says "you must do this before day XYZ" (there are a few like that).
Not a bug, every time you talk with a character there's a timer that reset. The option to explore the tomb will reappear for sure in the next few game days. I made this to avoid plot conflicts (talking, exploring, doing 500 things the same day lol).
There was one but I temporarily took it offline since it was hard to mantain two versions (a bug in demo carried over in the full version). Once the full version is more stable I'll make a new one (probably in a week)!
Yes the game is in beta but the full content is there. As for the style, I decided to add 2 "bonus pin-up CG" using another artist (with a style similar enough). Sadly the original artist is not available anymore, but I wanted to add more art to the game so I decided to do it this way :)
Is there a warning when the Steam keys of a product are getting low? like I uploaded 200, and there are only 20-15 left (in practice to make sure people don't remain without them)? Or I need to check it manually? If there isn't such a system in place I think would be a good idea (maybe just display a warning/message in the control panel itself).
At the end of last year, I was about to give up selling my games "directly" and just use Steam because of the codesign madness.
For those unfamiliar with it, I wrote about it a while ago in my blog: https://www.winterwolves.net/blog/2017/10/status-update-codesign-and-other-ameni...
I also live in a place without a reliable connection (this Winter I was often stuck with a 16kb/s upload connection for weeks!). So the idea of codesigning Win/Mac installers and uploading them EVERY TIME during a beta was a nightmare.
I am doing a beta of my newest RPG: https://winter-wolves.itch.io/cursed-lands
And so far thanks to itch.io backend was a dream. I did over 50 build / updates, and for most of them uploading only 7-8mb of patches, even with my terrible "winter connection" it was really quick :)
Thumbs up to itch.io and everyone involved with it!
That's not the last scene with him, it should go on later. But only if you have MAX relationship with him, otherwise won't go on. And of course playing as male protagonist only since he is the yaoi/gay romance.
Riley can be romanced only as Shea, while Jariel only as Althea, so keep that in mind. You also need to have the right relationship values for the romance to go on. Are you playing in VN mode or normally?
The Steam keys will be added automatically after the game is officially out on Steam, after the beta has finished (I prefer to do the beta outside Steam).
And no of course you don't need to buy separately the updates :)
The writer is finishing the last route right now. I think next month (March) could be a good estimate for the beta, and maybe April for the final release (but you can play it already in beta).
As for other games without stat raising, Heileen 1-2 don't have that, Bionic Heart, Nicole has a beta version of VN mode, and both Queen Of Thieves and Planet Stronghold:Colonial Defense albeit are a RPG/CCG, they can be both played in "VN Mode" (story and choices only). Thanks
Yes you can talk them only in the places they are at. For plot reasons, many stays in Grimoire (Vaeril, Galan, Dasyra) but the others need to stay in their own places. So that's the correct behavior :)
since I'm a developer based in europe, I need to create an invoice for every payment I get from itch.io by law. The problem is that I don't know the address of the company and I wasn't able to find it anywhere on the site.
I opened a ticket on git but was ignored after 3 months. Since this is a very simple question, could someone please answer me? I was able to find this info for all the other appstores I sell on (mobile, Steam, Humble, BMT micro).
