I think that Steam is an indie playground so you're competing for exposure big time. Every day there's some new indie game out it seems.

I'm struggling with a problem like million of indie game devs, not enough players. I'm thinking of posting my project on steam, I know that posting the game there will require a "small" fee, If I recall it's 100$, so my question is, is it worth to release it on steam?
Wouldn't an RPG maker game likely do better on Itch.io?

About 100 to 1000 times less income in my case.

So what, if anything, does sell on itch.io?
People appear to put a lot of stuff on there!

@Garryg That's right, but most of the available content is very doubtful quality.

playing around animations with character sprites. having parallel events playing around with variables while also having an event have that same variable does wonders.
