Games behind a paywall?

4 years ago by NightBlade9

While looking for a game to roast, I found a couple of games behind a pay wall -- you can't download them without buying them ($2-$5 on Itch.io).

Is this allowed? It looks like marketing under the guise of "give me feedback." Or is it a mistake from those developers and they forgot to make that game free?

It seems like there should be a way to flag these games.

Yep, I totally agree. This is a place to get feedback for (mostly) unfinished games, if I remember correctly.
If you have to pay for a game before you can help out the developer, it shouldn't be allowed to be here.
Giving feedback and advice is something we give to the devs for free.
