Itch, an open marketplace where indie game developers can upload and sell or give away their content, has lifted the lid on game communities. 

By creating a game community - that is, a community centered around a specific project - itch users will be able to spark, organize, and moderate a discussion about their latest release without ever having to leave the site. 

Community founders can also add new project admins and elect moderators to help manage the crowds. 

Itch, a site created by just one person, has emerged as an alternative to Steam for free and 'pay what you want' indie games, and this latest update has further filled out the feature set for those wanting to distribute their game simply and easily.

You can find out more about itch's communities by visiting this features and announcements blog.
