    Gamejolt supports web games as well
    Also, add http://itch.io/ to the PC marketplace list. It’s a pay-what-you want format, and they take a 10% cut

    You could also add Gameolith to the list. They’ll take Windows, Mac, Linux and Android. http://www.gameolith.com/

    Just one day remaining, but the book giveaway for “Getting Started with Unity” can still go in the Opportunities and Contests section…
