rar archives are discouraged for the itch app

It seems like at least two (The Sun and The World) of your games currently use .rar archives. As a result, they don't work in https://itch.io/app currently.

Here's what you can do:

  • Use https://itch.io/docs/butler/ to re-upload builds.
    • You don't need to make an archive first, just push the folders directly.
  • If you try butler and it's just not for you, you can always make a .zip file instead, and upload that.
  • In case you used .rar because of file sizes, I just lifted the upload limit on your account, so it should work even for The World (which is bigger).

Feel free to archive this thread once this is resolved!

Thanks for the help! I'll definitely be sure to make those adjustments.
