The itch.io API allows game developers to retrieve data about their Indie games from itch.io. Developers can retrieve user, gamer, display name, cover URL, game and developer id and more with the API. itch.io is an indie game distribution platform. Users can create customized landing pages, upload game files and screenshots, and set their own prices for games. Users may even choose to set a minimum price of zero, allowing buyers to pay what they want or what they can afford. itch.io hosts all uploaded files so that game makers don't have to worry about building a website or storing files themselves. Data is provided on how many times each game is viewed, downloaded, and purchased.
