Hey itch! <3

A few friends and myself are planning a little project for next year - a site which catalogues and indexes games from a particular community. I was thinking the best way to do this might be to get everyone to submit their games to itch.io, and then have our site use itch.io as its catalogue - i.e. all games could use a particular tag, and then we could link people directly to a search for that tag on itch.io when they want to find a game.

a) Are you okay with something like this?

b) Would it even work?

c) Do you have other suggestions for using itch in this way? We want to use our main site to host articles about the community and reviews of the games, but we don't have the infrastructure to host/upload/search the catalogue ourselves, and we want to encourage people to use itch.io so their work is shared more broadly.




Hey, I think this is a great idea. Coordinating everyone with a tag is probably the most flexible solution. An alternative approach would be to create a collection on itch.io, but if you plan on having a lot of games, filtering and sorting from a collection is a little lacking right now. If you do end up using a collection though I can show you a secret URL that lets you merge a collections contents with our /games page
