First The Lost Wizard, now Theodore - paid for both of these through a bundle. Devs are pulling a fast one. Is it time for Itch.io to be like Steam and prevent devs from pulling them off the site or using the loophole to put them out of reach of the public (including those who paid for the game?)
Another paid game - Theodore - no longer shows up on my Itch.io page
Huh... same dev/publisher...listed as Firestorm Entertainment and on The Theodore Adventures the dev is norum82, pub is Firestorm. I got Itch keys after paying for a couple of Groupees bundles, with the promise of Steam keys. Got neither from this goof. I should say, I got Itch keys that used to work, now both games come up as unavailable.
The Lost Wizard is still on Itch.io, but with no downloads, which is why it doesn't show up in searches (unlike on Steam). No sign of Theodore anywhere, apart from a few mentions of its launch last year. The company itself has no website I can find, though TLW has a Facebook page. So you bought those Itch.io keys from elsewhere? It would be useful to know.
Hi, The Lost Wizard in my account says a game bought 10 months ago, not available on Windows. It was originally part of Groupees The Blitz Bundle. https://groupees.com/blitz Note the itch key mentioned. Which I added to my account at the time.
The Theodore Adventures is from Groupees Build A Bundle 33 https://groupees.com/bab33 Again, note the Itch key mention. I added it. Now I get a 404 not found page on Itch.io.
Indeed, deleting the files is a loophole creators can use to get products off Itch after selling them. Well, I've escalated this issue, an admin should see it soon. Out of curiosity, were you able to find out anything from Groupees.com?
