What are some examples of games that use itch.io App Manifests?

I want to see some examples of games that followed the itch.io App Manifest guidelines found here. Does anybody know of some of them?

Admin

There's a bunch of games, but nothing free

This is an open-source app mostly for poking with the itch.io sandbox: https://github.com/fasterthanl...

I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

That's basically what I meant, a kind of kitchen sink app that showcases what the APIs can do as implemented in an example. However, the sample app gets an error after it downloads the required VCRedist. I tried both with sandbox on and off.

Can you post the app logs? (Right click on the "Sample Evil App" tab, -> Advanced -> View logs...)

Also, do you have VS2017 installed? There's a known issue where the VS2015 redist won't install if VS2017 is already installed.

Not sure if you meant Visual Studio as in the IDE itself or the redistributables but either way, I seem to have both installed.

Here's the log (wall of text incoming, sorry!)

Yeah so, that's expected, sorry :( The plan is to make the app smart enough to be satisfied with the VC2017 redist if the VC2015 redist is required (since the VC2017 does both - and VC2015 will refuse to install if VC2017 is already there).

Redists are hell, forgive the temporary snafu.

Yeah I understand. Out of curiosity where does it save the redists in Windows? When I was trying to get it to work, it always kept re-downloading them. Are there plans to make it cache the redists instead? To avoid unnecessary bandwidth usage? (Yeah I know few MBs, but there are people with heavily capped internet so all the savings is always better.)

I've been working on prereqs (redists) just yesterday and I was thinking the same thing. The test-prereqs command I just added to butler v6.0.0 does cache them, since I had to run it so often :)

Prerequisites are better documented as of yesterday btw: https://itch.io/docs/itch/integrating/prereqs/
