We just published the free to play Demo of our game "Hermit: an Underwater Tale" (https://early-coffee-games.itch.io/hermit-an-underwater-tale)
The itch page we set up makes use of your awesome "This file is a demo and can be downloaded for free" feature, but this means that there is, at this point, no file to purchase (the game is still in development), only free files to download.
We went through the documentation (https://itch.io/docs/creators/getting-indexed), and as far as we understand, all criteria are met, except that the game can not be purchased. But the demo is still downloadable (so files are available).
Would it be possible to get indexed with these settings? Thanks a lot for your help and apologies for the trouble. Hope we didn't make something completely wrong on our end.
If this is not possible, what is the best strategy to have the same page available now to download the demo, and later to sell the game?
Thanks a lot for your time and help!
