Oh my word I do love itch.io and their store app. It's open source (MIT license), it's beautiful and it actually works really well now.

Linux specific fixes:
QuoteThe ArchLinux package (in AUR) for the application was unusable for certain users depending on their ruby setup. All scripts have been rewritten to get rid of ruby, solving the problem once and for all.


It has a professional Japanese translation, the ability to pick a download if a game offers multiple options, a better preferences screen, and bug fixes.

Seriously guys, you should all keep a keener eye on itch.io, they are doing amazing stuff. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I am a huge Steam fan and I do love having my games there BUT I do want to see this store succeed even tho I am probably not going to use it.

A cool feature I'd like to see is an integrated Steam Controller configurator. SC is IMO the best controller out there, but it's not (much or at all) better than an XBox Controller without it's configurability.

It'd be cool if this would offer alternatives to all of Steam's features and even bring some new ideas to the table.

Question: Does it include all open-source / free games in it's catalogue? If yes then I am going to use it. I like having my games installed through a game manager rather than standalone - that's why I'm really looking forward to seeing GOG Galaxy on Linux and to see it succeed as well and offer alternatives to Steam's features.

When I'm going to build my gaming-only PC I want it to be more like a universal gaming station - with options for PS2 emulation, and non-Steam games.

It doesn't need it's own utility to do that, there's this one.

Re browsing, see our directory page for a list of all valid filters. You can also append .xml to any of the browser pages to get an Atom feed! I personally recommend browsing by tag to find what you like.

As far as controller support goes, the utility Liam linked to (SC Controller) looks great, but unfortunately Linux-only. We make all our features available on all 3 OSes we support, so we'd probably have to interface with something lower-level instead.
