itch.io searching

Post by Lonestar51 »

I just noticed a strange behaviour when trying to search for a game on itch.io:

The search term "Planet Stronghold" did not give me the game, neither the first part nor the second. It did show a number of games, some had "planet" in the name but not the other, some had "stronghold" in the name.

Searching for "Winterwolves" did show the Winterwolves catalogue as expected. Yes, both Planet Stronhold 1 + 2 were listed.

What is the preferred method of searching on itch.io if the game is not found by the name?

I found the reason: it's because the game is tagged as NSFW due to optional nudity/adult content, so that's normal that doesn't show up in search unless you're logged in and enabled NSFW content :)
