Hello everyone!

We're launching a new top level community for discussion about game development and any other things related to itch.io. You can find the main community page at https://itch.io/community. The system is quite new so bear with us as we work out any bugs. I've created a handful of categories for discussion to get started with, but none of them are set in stone. If you'd like to see something else please leave a reply

The launch of this message board is a good time to also set forward some new community specific rules. We've got a new page in the about section, please take a moment to read Community Rules.

We'll also likely write some specific rules to each of the sub-categories as time goes on just to keep things moving smoothly.

Also, please say hello to itch.io's admin team:

Thanks and enjoy!

Looks awesome :) I'm kind of glad you made a bespoke forum because pretty much all forum software in existence is a cluttered piece of late 90s web design.

Admin (Edited 1 time) (+2)

Thanks. It was pretty risky because it literally took me an entire year to do it. But now I'm in a good place, if there's something we want to add I can just go do it pretty quickly.

I am super happy about this. itch has already become a great environment for games of all sizes but now it will become a great community for devs and players alike.

Also this seems like a forum I would actually be active in which is pretty cool.

Oooh also question: Is this integrated with the feed page yet or is that planned?

Also for the art/screenshot forums, I cant find an inbuilt way to embed images, so you have to edit the html if you want to do it. I'm sure that if I'm not just missing something this is a planned feature but just thought I'd say it seems how there are art forums.

Admin(+1)

it's not very obvious but if you insert a image link and hit enter it should turn into the embed. Something we'll make easier to discover most likely

Thanks for this. Definitely a great idea :)

Admin(+2)

glad we're finally up! i've personally been excited for this to happen for a while!

:) hello,
thank you for this, I haven't seen a nice forum for years.

I'm super happy to see this, though I normally suck at forums and this might be my only post ever - but I'm gonna try to be more active than that since I love this place so much already


edit: wai.... no emoji? omg this is horrible I'm never coming here again! :P

Admin(+4)

Oh, we need emoji.

Please let this not be your last post here ever :)

A customizable, forum-wide emoji set would be sweet. I particularly like the way the Slack emoji system works.

That sounds great to me!

I'm super happy with this. I like itch.io. I don't know how active I'll be.

I was wondering if itch would ever have something where developers can interact with each other, definitely happy to see this! :)

This forum is a great idea, good luck.

Wheeeeee so excited about this.

This is the SUPERB IDEA!! Thanks for creating this great community and this is the place where I will visit every day. You are one of the awesome people who care about small indie devs.

Thank you!

is there a way to skip to the first unread post in a topic?

Admin

it should be doing it already but there's a bug in the software. i believe leaf should be pushing a fix sometime tonight!

Admin

All fixed now, see here for more info: http://itch.io/t/10294/forums-updates-galore

i'm excited to see the doors open. this is one of the most carefully constructed platforms for small creative projects anywhere, and i can't wait to see the same care applied to community building.

hiiii loren!!

Hey my names Alfred and i'm just starting game making and would love to be in a small team or even just have a partner. I'm in the middle of making and RPG game but i need help making an attacking sprite for my character but i'm not the best at that(i already have an animating character but just not attacking). So if anyone can help please reply.

Hi - I just submitted my first commercial game on here, called The Adventurers. So far, it looks like only two visitors came to the page naturally (as in no direct advertising through other websites). I hope there's a way to generate more visitors to the site in general, and to my game in particular.

https://cwurtsyprpg.itch.io/the-adventurers

Yes there is. Posting in the forums is one. ;) Having a good description and tags also helps. Have a little patience, visitors will show up. And advertise in other venues as well, anyway. There's only so much traffic you can get from a single source.

This is nice :D

Hi, I've downloaded one of the games on this website but I'm not sure on how to begin playing it, the device which I'm using is Lenovo and it keeps on saying that it will take some time to begin the game. So I've already downloaded the game but I can't start it, can you please help me so that I can start, if not I will try to delete this game on my device, that is if I can find it. Thanks!

Even 184 days after you have launched it is still a beautiful design. Definitely agree that there are still too many forums out there with a 90's design to them. This has a very sleek bootstrap feel to it. :)

Can someone please teach me to download a game please? I'm hella new to this platfrom.

Admin

Are you trying to download a specific game?

On most game pages just scroll down and there should be a download button if the game is free. The developers of the games upload the files so the installation instructions can change depending on the game, but in general you'll find a zip file that contains the executable.

You can also use our app, which can download, organize, and run games for you: https://itch.io/app
