Starting today itch.io now has a brand new notification system to keep you updated on things like your sales, comments, and new followers.
Any unread notifications will be signaled to you with a white dot in the header:
Clicking that will take you to the new notifications page: a summary of the events that have happened recently.
All notifications that go unread will automatically be sent to you as a single grouped email after a few hours.
As always, you have full control over how how itch.io emails you from the notifications settings page. You can even toggle individual notification types.
This system replaces the old email system. For sellers this means you will no longer receive emails per game sold. Instead you will get a summary every few hours, unless you’ve seen the notifications on the site already.
As new functionality is added to itch.io expect any messaging to go through this system.
Thanks and enjoy!
