After The End: The Harvest

The goal is simple, the game is hard, reach the centre. · By Elushis

Sale's kind of misleading (but it's itch.io's fault, probably)

itch.io requires us to pay a minimum of $1 due to processing fees, which I didn't know until now.

Still picking it up, mind you, but perhaps keep it in mind for future sales.

I actually had no idea about that. I'm so sorry! This is the first time the game has had the 90% discount anywhere online. Thank you for letting me know. Edit: And thank you for picking up the game!

Honestly, it might be an idea to contact itch.io support about this, as the site UI certainly suggests paying the shown price is possible, and I'm guessing you didn't get a warning at your end that users wouldn't be able to pay the displayed price.

You're right. There was no warning that I had noticed, but, I imagine it would be written somewhere on the site or the terms though. 

I believe/think? the reason that the site permits it, is because the developer payout is still what is being advertised, while the itch.io fee is sort of a tax on top and is being displayed as its own separate warning before the player purchases the game.

Yeah, but in any case (above the $1 minimum) as users we can just pay the minimum amount the developer specifies. We're not forced to always enter minimum+$0.25.
