Right now game store itch.io is hosting their first official itch.io Creator Day, where the store gives 100% of the sales back to developers instead of taking a cut. This is not the first time itch.io has done this, as they did so for Black Friday in 2020. Now though, they've confirmed that this is going to be a more regular thing which is why they've slapped an actual name on it.
Developers don't have to do anything, as it's all automatic. Taking a cut from developers has always been a very open point for itch, as developers set the cut they give to itch themselves - there's no forced 30% or 12% or anything here. Note: developers don't entirely get 100% exactly, as there's still taxes and payment processor fees but you get the point.
Here's some quick picks of great Linux-supported games to get from itch:
- Baba Is You
- Dicey Dungeons
- Lenna's Inception
- The Away Team
- Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion
- Vintage Story
