SUPER slow download speed for Aven Colony

I've just bought Aven Colony and the download speed is rather dismal. At a mere 80kBps! I've tried both the direct download link on the Aven game page and using the launcher. At this speed it's going to take literally hours to download.

Any one else experianceing slow download speed?

I often have download issues too. It appears Aven Colony will take between 4 and 5 hours for me. I share your pain.

I wouldn't be complaining if it were only 4~5 hrs, at the aforementioned speed (with fluctuation) chrome is estimating 12~14hrs! Completely unacceptable for a paid game even in alpha/beta

It took me about 4 minutes, it all depends whether or not other people are using the website to download games (I assume). Just chill out. Put it on before you go to bed or something.

What region are you located in? I'm not sure where itch.io content servers are but generally they can handle the traffic.

Also have you tried downloading it from the itch.io client rather than using chrome to download it directly?

I generally have a lot of download issues. Does it have issues sending stuff to the UK?


Sorry to hear you're having this issue. I'd contact itch.io support; it's not something we really have control over.
