For the Black Friday 2020 sale, itch.io are giving 100% to developers

By - | Views: 13,820

While itch.io has given developers the ability to choose how much they give to the store for some time, for Black Friday 2020 the store is giving all developers 100% of sales.

Announced earlier this month, they mentioned that from "Midnight Pacific Time on 11/27 to Midnight on 11/28" so 8AM UTC today (27th) until 8AM UTC tomorrow (28th) they're not taking a cut from any developer. Game devs don't need to change anything, as it's automatic. The whole sale lasts longer though until Monday, 30th November at 6PM UTC.

Since itch.io is such an open store, where anyone can setup a page, finding good games can be a little difficult and overwhelming due to the amount of tech demos, game jam entries and more available. To help with that, here's a list of some awesome Linux games you should think about buying:

I've written/raved about MidBoss before. For less than $5 you shouldn't even be thinking about not buying that. I also recently got into Rise to Ruins. Surprisingly compelling after a couple of false starts. It has a learning curve, but there's a nice Settlers 2 feel to it once you get going. It might be the game that eventually gets me into RimWorld!

The advantages of weak US Dollar. Cheaper games on itch for non-American residents!
