itch.io (Q22905933) is a digital store, mostly for video games, like GOG, Humble Store, or Steam. It is widely used for independent video games.
Each game or project hosted there has its own web page with a unique URL.
We need an ”Itch.io ID”, “Itch.io URL” or equivalent property, the same way we have properties like Humble Store ID (P4477), GOG application ID (P2725), Steam Application ID (P1733), Google Play Store app ID (P3418), App Store app ID (P3861)…
The difference is that the URL scheme here is closer to Bandcamp than to other app stores. It has two values, author and work, and takes the form author.itch.io/work — I’m too new to Wikidata to know what is the best way to register a property like this.

- Comment See Wikidata:Property proposal/Identifiant itch.io for previous discussion of this. URL datatype does seem the right choice. ArthurPSmith (talk) 17:45, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
@Pintoch: Thanks for the creation ; however I don’t understand how this was done without notifying the participants to Wikidata:Property proposal/Identifiant itch.io. Jean-Fred (talk) 21:05, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
