Not Downloading?

Hey, I'm pretty new here so I'm not really sure how to exactly fix stuff around here. The thing is, I tried downloading a game from this site to my mac and it worked the first time. But, I just tried downloading a game right now and it's not downloading at all (I even switched my browsers). I noticed that on the bottom of the page (I'm using google chrome) for where the URL would be displayed would always read javascript:void(0) for every single game and I don't know if this is normal.

Can anyone help me?


Is this related to the itch.io app? Or downloading games on itch.io in general?

I think it's for the itch.io in general. Sometimes it downloads sometimes it doesn't and it's weird.

me too this happens for me too


Are you downloading from the website our our app? Could you tell us what happens?

Make sure you aren't using any download managers, since they aren't compatible with downloads from our website. If you want resumable downloads then I recommend you install the app.

I am having the same issue on both the website and the app, I click the download button and nothing happens on the website, and on the app the game will stay at 'Starting download'

I find the download won't work if the game has been set to "disable all payments". Turning payments on (even if the default is $0.00) means the download works. Not sure if there's anything you can do as a user, however.


I tried downloading it from the website and then it says Network Error and when I press resume it says Failed - Forbidden 

I just tried downloading some games and I'm having issues with Chrome only. Works with Edge/IExplorer...
