Thanks, RPS. Itch.io’s Creator Day runs until 11:59 pm PT on May 14. Source
To help get the wheels turning, Itch.io also has a Creator Day sale page going. As far as I can tell it’s really just a roundup of stuff that’s on sale anyway, but there are some good choices here: Itch.io takes an even more relaxed approach: Its default rate is 10%, and if developers want to drop that all the way to nothing, they can. (And today, they don’t have a choice.)
Rusty Lake Paradise – I will never not recommend the Rusty Lake games, and Paradise is particularly good.Nuts – A hard-boiled detective thriller about squirrels and their nuts. It’s really good.Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion – The title is catchy, and Mollie liked it a lot.A Short Hike – An acclaimed indie game about enjoying a wee trek.Shadowhand – An RPG card game about an 18th-century highwaywoman. (Its predecessor, Regency Solitaire, is on sale too.)Kentucky Route Zero – Just a great, dreamlike narrative adventure. Can’t recommend it enough. There’s no reference to other storefronts in the announcement, but it stands as a pretty clear counterpoint to Steam, which is facing increasing pressure from developers, publishers, and other sellers over the 30% cut it continues to take from most sales. Valve slightly reduced the amount it takes from some games in late 2018—instead of 30% across the board, it now only takes 25% on earnings over $10 million, and 20% on earnings in excess of $50 million—but that leaves out the vast majority of indie devs (the ones who would most benefit from a reduction in fees, in other words), and it pales in comparison to the 12% cut now taken by Epic Games and Microsoft.
