Preface: itch.io is awesome, not just as a platform, but as a community, and these forums are so far reflecting that quite nicely. I love it and look forward to posting our games here for years to come!
Now, I don't know if it's because of a lack of traction/a lack of PR budget/lack of general interest in our games specifically, or perhaps it has something to do with the small size of the site or people being nervous about putting in their credit card info, but has anyone else found it difficult to push premium products here? I don't mean free games or app-priced titles, I mean products that cost $5 or greater. Obviously if your game is on Steam, you're going to see some money just from the size of the audience. I'm still wondering what would benefit my games on the little sites, though. Thinking of heading in the direction of exclusive bonus content, but I know how polarizing that can be. Heck, our most recent title, Mondrian - Abstraction in Beauty, was featured on the front page, and while we got thousands of views, the sales numbers most certainly do not reflect that.
What are some ways you've found success on itch.io? Have you even found any success here, and if not, what do you think is the culprit?
