While big publishers like Ubisoft and Square Enix are adamant in continuing their pursuit of implementing NFTs in their games, some other publishers like EA have tried to distance themselves from the same in light of pushback from audiences and many in the industry as well. Similarly, amidst backlash, many other developers and publishers have walked back on their intentions of dabbing fingers into NFT, such as GSC Game World, and Team17.

Now, popular indie game marketplace Itch.io has also come forward and declared its stance on NFTs-and it’s an interesting one. In a statement shared on Twitter, Itch.io called NFTs a “scam”, pretty strongly voiced their opinion on people advocating for them. You can see their tweet below.

For those unfamiliar, Itch.io also allows users to upload works related to art on their website, along with the freedom to sell anything and everything on the storefront. The tweet getting posted makes sense, as creators might be apprehensive of the marketplace’s stance on it, given their way of working with developers.
