Pretty good website for downloading games. However, I'm convinced I've downloaded some form of malware off of it. Be careful what you download here. A lot of people use their games as a way to put malware and trackers into people's computers.

I'm a dev there and play a lot of games there to and it seems safe! If you want to be safer, turn on the itch.io sandbox through preferences in the app.

Nice site, but not safe, some creators put troyans and tracking programms in files. Id recommend ***** for a check before starting .exe

[Oh hey, my first new review since 2017.] Many of my favorite indie games came from this website [the most famous probably being FNF]. Also, the name-your-price really does work for digital resources, apparently.
