The New Curiosity Shop: Itch.io Interview

I visit some strange places during my daily trawls across the vastness of the internet. The search for obscure and eclectic games demands a willingness to look beyond the convenience store of Steam and the archive of Good Old Games, and in recent months I've found myself visiting itch.io on a regular basis. I didn't intend to visit on such a regular basis but interesting…
