We're introducing a new way to classify the files you've uploaded to your project.
Previously, when uploading a new file, we would ask you which platform it was for, eg. Windows, Linux, macOS. Since many people use itch.io to upload things other than executables, this was a confusing step. Some people selected all platforms, some people selected none. Starting now you can tell us what kind of file you're uploading, and we'll only ask for the platform when you add an executable:
We've run a script across all existing files to update the type where it was obvious. (For example, .pdf files now are Book type). This will help clean up a lot of the incorrectly classified project pages. For example, the Android games section should no longer include games that weren't for Android but included OSTs or instruction manuals.
The script wasn't able to catch everything though. Please take a look at your existing project pages and update your uploads' types where appropriate.
We've included the following top level types, if you have any more please leave a comment below with a suggestion.
