Hey there! I'd just like to take a minute to give a little bit of feedback regarding the content on the front page of itch.io, specifically in regards to game jams.
I didn't have an account for the site for the longest time, because I didn't really feel like I had a reason to make one, but one thing changed my mind a certain time when I logged in. A game jam. It not only encouraged me to sign up to itch.io, it encouraged me to sign up to the jam itself AND got me to see my entry through to the end. It was a great experience, and since then I've been looking at the game jam section every so often to see if anything else would catch my eye.
What I'd like to suggest is that maybe two or three of the slots on the front page are reserved for promoting game jams with interesting themes or ideas. I think this would help promote the idea of creation on the platform and get more developers involved with producing something for a game jam, and it'd probably mean more sign ups for the more unique jams too.
Thank you for reading!
