I make family friendly sci-fi comics and games :)
Does Itch.io have any submission program to select creators to be featured or do they chose them based on downloads? :)

Thank!

I think they are basing only in downloads. So both of you and itch can make a profit in every downloads. But firstly you need to set up your payment settings before you can publish your games.

Um, have you noticed how many of the games featured on the front page are free? Pretty sure the selection criteria are more complex than that. But you can't submit your game to be featured; our hosts choose for their own reasons. Makes sense, too: if you could submit your game, everyone would!

Thanks for clearing that up. 

And in regard to subs some platforms can afford to hire people to go through all the submissions from everyone who submits ... and they either tax submitters or only consider people with a "STRONG FOLLOWING".  Since I'm new to Itch and couldn't find any reviews for it on YT in this regard, I thought I'd ask in the forum....sadly nobody seems to know much about that part of the process. Itch is young I guess...so many things are a mystery. 

Patreon for example has a convoluted and secret feature program and even then they only consider people with a strong following and only feature you once in your life. I was curious if Itch had a similar program or a more inclusive one like Tapas....so I can know where to try harder or just not bother.
