In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to download Itch.io games for Windows in 2020. This is an updated video that covers how to get started with playing itch.io games since the previous one didn’t cover .rar files. It takes a bit of time to learn how to use the program 7-zip to extract, but once you do you will be able to play games in no time.

** Make sure to check out the FAQ in Google Docs if you have a question that may have been answered! **

If you need help then I will try my best in the comment section.

Thanks for watching and take care.
