All Zachtronics games are now available on itch.io

Posted by , | Views: 3,869

Some good news for fans of high quality puzzle games, as Zachtronics entire library is now available to purchase on itch.io.

This includes:

Every single one supports Linux too, Zachtronics have been good to Linux gaming for years and I personally considering Opus Magnum to be a truly excellent game. I said in a previous article that it could "easily be my favourite game from 2017", so if you've not tried any I can highly recommend it.

You can see all their games here.

Another bit of misc news for Zachtronics, is that they've made all their games free for public schools and school-like non-profit organizations. You can see more on that here. Really great initiative, hopefully some take up the offer.

That's great! It's always good to hear when good commercial games make it to itch.
If I didn't already own them all on GOG I'd buy them on itch now.
But thanks anyway for making great cross platform games

Good to see Itch getting more love from developers. It needs to get more love from gamers though seeing as it is a storefront that does pretty much everything we want. Excellent open source client, treats developers ethically, can download your games outside of the client and more.

I'd do that if itch had regional prices and sales like Steam. The price difference is so great for us, third-world people that itch, however good it is, is simply not an option.

Exactly. I really wish it had regional prices (and local currencies, and local payment methods)... it is a platform I really want to succeed, but I can't afford to pay almost twice as much for games. Steam and GOG (and now, Paradox Plaza) are the only places where buying games is viable, and even then usually only on deep sales.

And they have a Puzzle Pack with sale of -19% of 6 of their games:

And that offer ends in 10 years! Yeah that's right.

Zachtronics is really a respectful developer!

By the way, check out Zachtronics's latest 'documentary' release: ZACH-LIKE

It used to be a kickstarter -- now the pdfs & audio visual files & the flash games are on Steam for free.

Zach Barth spoke about this release at the latest GDC -- link to youtube.

I might want to find a download link for this PDF, since it's Steam-only for a free content, it's a pity.
