While nowhere near as popular as Steam or GOG.com, itch.io’s focus on DRM-free indie titles and a strong connection with the community, makes them a force to be reckoned with. A force which is looking to improve upon itself yet again this week, with several new additions hinted, including… something about a ‘focused feature’? Peculiar.
And that’s about it. Oh wait, no, the blog post also makes mention of a new ‘product’, set to launch on Friday. But before that there’s still five days of fun-filled indie goodness ahead, each with a new developer in the spotlight and that focused feature thing. Teasers. Gotta love ’em.
we’ve got all these awesome creators and great tools… but it’s way too easy to miss them if you’re not refreshing us every day. We decided to spend an entire week celebrating what itch.io stands for and the people who use it.
The event is set to kick off today, May 9th, at 11:00 PST, and upon one day giving way to the next, the itch.io week page will be updated, ensuring nothing is missed. So… what do you think the big reveal on Friday the 13th will be, dear reader?
