I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing, though. I mean, sure, most of it's trash, but that no curation stance makes it a perfect place to find things that would be hard to find if pubs shoved it there. There are some rough gems in there (like the momodora series, two other games by the same dev are on this platform [Momodora 4, and Minoria]).
ReynardFox: The problem with itch beyond the atrocious website design is that is primarily a dumping ground for indie projects with no quality control at all, as it stands it's not much better than an app store, with only a handful of actually worthwhile games and absolutely no support from any major players. That's also the reputation it has earned, so it's unlikely to ever really change.
The thing i don't like about it is, well, i saw some devs are charging for demos there. So, the price!=quality rule is very, very important for navigating. However, if you have a good advertising campaign, that's a GREAT place, because if you know what it's called, you can find it there.
EDIT: Also, i'm the kind of guy that thinks GOG and Steam are atrocious, too. Google Play Store is UGLY, but not bad enough to be atrocious. Sometimes you just gotta deal with what works.
