We've played quite a few games here on Itch.io (and it's really opened our eyes to some awesome developers) and enjoying the community. When we're logged in, the site very helpfully shows what games we've interacted with and asks us to rate them, including our own game. Awkward.
In rating your own game, do people do that? And do people just hit "FULL STEAM AHEAD FOR 5 STARS, BECAUSE REASONS", or are they overly self critical and actually give it a much lower score? The other thing that occurred to us is that our game is written in Twine, and of course, not everybody likes "interactive fiction" (totally understandable), so do genres or types of game get relatively low ratings because they're compared to something completely different, or do most people rate them against comparable games?
Sorry, lots of questions!
