You can upload your indie game on your Dashboard. You can find your Dashboard in the Navbar on the right if already signup as a game developer.
To be paid, you have to create a stripe account, since they are our payment providers. You can go to Payouts in your Dashboard.
No. You will always fully own your content. You can remove your indie game at any time and we couldn't use it anymore. We ask only for the minimum amount of rights necessary so that we can show your game's page, host your game’s assets and distribute your game.
Yes, of course. There is no exclusivity here, we just want game developers to share their indie game as much as they can, and be successful. Your sucess ir our sucess.
We believe the best way to fight piracy is to let gamers access a wide range of games by paying a monthly subscription fee.
Unfortunately, people will always try to crack games. Our model would make it accessible for most and reduces the need for piracy.
Don't get us wrong. We will go to great lengths to ensure your IP is safe, and we will partner with DRM and Anti-tamper software providers, eventually.
But, for now, we let users download the games exactly as you uploaded them.
Yes, in fact, we encourage you to do so.
We set aside part of the additional money that come from the two top subscriptions which give access to early released games to help you get your indie game up and running.
You can easily upload your indie game in Early Access mode, using Indie Games Pass, by setting the release status to "In development" in your Dashboard, when uploading or updating your game.
Steam is a great distribution platform, but difficult for anyone just starting out. Itch.io is better than steam to start and more indie-friendly, but it uses a different model than ours. We are not here to replace Steam or Itch.io, we are here to complement them. On your game's page, you can link to both your steam's and itch.io's pages.
Game Pass are an opportunity to broaden the horizon of gamers and let them discover new games and genres that they would never play, but guess what? They tried them and developed a taste for them. Meaning there's a great opportunity for developers who are making something a little more niche.
We only ask you to consider us, not as an alternative, but as a complement and try the game pass model, if you don't like it you can always remove your game.
Recent data shows that subscribers to Game Passes are playing more games, buying more outside the Game Pass, and trying a wider variety of genres than they did before joining. Generally, when a game goes into a Game Pass, there's an average of six times increase usage.
After releasing their games on a game pass, several game developers saw a sudden increase in sales on other platforms. Suggesting that gamers even though they got game pass want to support games they love by buying them.
