      Steam vs Epic Games Store opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Steam is a great alternative to Epic Games Store.
      sparkydev Steam was better than Epic Games beacuse for having simple features like cart and evaluation system and more complex like a graphics system for developers known as steamdb. Steam at least does not buy game exclusivity ;)

    3. itch.io gives you the ability to design a page where people can download games you have uploaded. You can optionally put a minimum price on your game (which can be 0), giving people the opportunity to pay you what they think you deserve. All files and images are hosted on itch.

      dataculi Developers can choose how much of the revenue goes to itch.io and they have huge support for indie games. On top of that, buying from itch.io will often give you a Steam key anyways so you will be supporting developers most this way without much of an inconvenience to you
