Assuming this is the correct place ... Let's pretend I made Pico8 (http://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php) and that lots of people are posting games made with Pico-8 on Itch.io (https://itch.io/games/tag-pico-8)
I'd like to post those on my website in some automated way. Examples
- use an iframe to "https://itch.io/games/tag-pico-8"
but that's disallowed :(
- read some RSS feed of game tagged with pico-8
doesn't seem to exist
- call some API to query all games with tag=pico-8 then generate embed codes
no such call currently?
Is that a feature that's a plus to Itch.io? It seems like anything that expands exposure to itch.io is a benefit to itch.io and creators (more users = more chances for sales). I really like itch.io and I'd prefer to point users of my system here to push their games but at the same time I want a way to add them to my site as well. Ideally an automated away. That way I can I don't have to duplicate itch.io features and there's no conflict between promoting on my own site vs itch.io. I don't have to ask creators to do two things (register your game on both sites) etc..
PS: I am NOT the creator of Pico-8 but it's a good example because it's a game creation system and many games are on itch.io and on Pico-8's site. Being able to use itch.io's features more directly from the Pico-8 site would save the Pico-8 guy the trouble of writing his own custom system. I'm making a library. I'd like to automate exposure to games using my library.
Any chance itch.io is interested in pursuing features to support that?
