Uploading a Bitsy game to Itch.io
Before you upload your game to itch.io, make sure you have the following.
- An itch.io account
- Your bitsy game downloaded. If your bitsy game requires more than the html file, put all relevant files into a folder. Then rename the main html file to index.html, and zip the folder.
- A cover image
- Some screenshots of your game
Sign in to your itch.io account.
Fill out the fields for your game, and upload your game file, cover image, and screenshots. Bitsy games are executable in the web browser, but you can also set it to be downloadable if you prefer. You can specify the viewport dimensions; 512x512px is a good option for many bitsy games.
Save the game as a draft and view the itch.io page for your game. You can make any style changes using the edit theme button. If you want to edit the html for the game page, you can do this back on your project dashboard.
There are many other options and settings to explore from your game's dashbaord. Familiarize yourself with these and make any necessary changes before uploading your game.
When you're ready, you can change the access settings for your game from a draft to public.
