Lately I've been doing quite a bit of research on places where I can publish my game creations(currently for free, considering lack of money made with them xD) in order to get downloads and feedback


So I thought I should ask, what places do you publish your games? Which ones are free, which ones are paid?

possible places:

- steam (of course, you'd have to pay for it)
- itch (don't know, if and if how much they charge)

alternatively: rpg-maker / rpg forums ... there are several forums out there, some with dedicated areas for game releases

I don't think that's really a place to "publish" the game. It's a place to advertise your game once completed and published, but (unless you're talking about other forums I'm not familiar with) you can't, for example, host your browser game here.

I suppose you could have a game release thread with a link to a Google Drive download or something, but that's really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

itch.io is free, according to everything I've read and see in their FAQ.

i tend to use itch.io it's free and while you may not get the exposure as with steam it's pretty good for indie games especially weird smaller ones, and steam is pretty good if you can afford the 100$ fee.

On my website, which has been around for close to 15 years (22 if you count its previous incarnations).
This website is for paid games only though, but free games can be posted on the forum.

itch.io is where I post mine, mostly because it is free.
