Indie storefront Itch.io has announced its next "Creator Day" will take place in just a few days on February 18, 2022.

The Creator Day initiative was launched in 2021 to let developers keep 100 percent of sales (minus the usual taxes and fees) for 24 hours.

As noted on the Itch website, that means the platform will forgo its usual portion of sales to help developers bring home more bacon.

"This Friday, February 18th we’re not taking any of our usual portion of sales. From Midnight to Midnight (Pacific Time) developers will earn 100 percent of sales minus the usual taxes and fees," reads a blog post. "This means it’s a better time than ever to support your favorite developers, artists, and writers."

Devs, consider this a reminder to get prepped for the big day. Alternatively, if you've been planning an Itch shopping spree, why not wait a few more days to help your favorite creators net a bumper payday.
