This weekend, I’ll be hosting my first sale on the itch store. All weekend, all the pdfs will be 50% off, with community copies added for every purchase. Any bundle purchases will add community copies to every game in the bundle. It’s only running from Black Friday through Monday, but come down and grab any games you’re missing. itch is also waiving their cut, so more of your hard-earned gaming dollar is going to the creators you know and love. A lot of like-minded creatives are joining in this weekend so take a look around and grab some new titles for yourself.
The concept of community copies should probably be unpacked a bit here. Pioneered by some great folks in the community, community copies are free or reduced price copies of pdfs available for folks who can’t afford to pay full price for what you have available. I’ve been making use of them to keep copies out for review, available for whoever needs them. It’s something I would love to see more creators embrace as we invite more people to have a seat at the table.
The other announcement worth making right now is that there is an extremely limited run of BITE games that are available right now for a significant discount. They are literally Monster damaged, but come with a pair of Nerdhaus buttons and a hand-written thank you note if you buy them off the BITE page. If you don’t already have a copy, this is the cheapest you’ll find it. I’ll even waive the shipping and hand deliver if you’re close to the Kansas City metro, just send me a message any way you can and we can work out the details.
A new game is underway and projects are starting to get moving. I’ll have more of that development process as well as some new game reviews up between now and the end of the year. It’s been a weird time for everyone lately, but let’s try and make the rest of 2020 something we can appreciate. Let’s all help each other do that.
