You’ve just finished your Ludum Dare 35 game, and you’re looking to take advantage of embedding your game directly into your Ludum Dare submission page…
or… you have your own page where you’d like to host your game, but you still want to still use itch.io to upload and update your game.
itch.io has you covered, introducing game embeds!
Any HTML or Flash project can now be embedded by pasting a little HTML snippet, similar to our existing widget that lets you buy or donate to a project.

You can generate the iframe based code from the “Embed game” section of the Distribute tab. You can choose the file you’d like to embed, customize the size, and change the color. Every embed comes with a link back to your game page on itch.io along with a fullscreen button.
You can even preview the embed directly inside the itch.io page, as seen above.
Embeds are specific to the file you’ve chosen. This means you can have multiple versions of your game (eg. a jam version) and independent embeds for each of them.
Look forward to analytics and more customization options in the near future.
