October 27, 2017 | By Alex Wawro

If you're a dev with an interest in either Patreon or, you should know that the latter is gaining a new feature (inside the "Distribute" tab of the dashboard) that allows for devs to distribute their work directly to Patreon backers.

Notably, this should streamline the work of providing games, game dev tools, or other creations to Patreon supporters, and give devs who use Patreon a more centralized way to keep track of how many copies of a given project have been distributed and how many have been redeemed on Itch. founder Leaf Corcoran showcased the new feature on Twitter today and made it clear that, for the moment, it's still experimental; devs can start messing around with it now, and Corcoran aims to flesh it out and provide documentation in the near future.
