Anyone knows about work with Chillingo?

Right now I am considering to work with Chillingo to promote my app. Anyone knows the revenue sharing of Chillingo? And...If Chillingo publish my app, can I take the right back to publish the game?

However, like Rovio, they don't need to take back the publishing right, they releases themselves a Angry Bird "Season", another version of the game and it seems fine.
do you have any suggestions about working with Chillingo? Thanks!

On my side, if you really believe to your content, do publish it yourself and take your lesson, it will help you with future moves on other games, or if your game is so great, I bet you will be happy because you won't need to share revenue and experience for someone else but you.
thanks, i'm still gonna choose Chillingo although I am confidence of my game, they have much stronger PR xps than me. I have no idea how to publish efficiently.

I hope this is Chillingo paying for most of the dev cost right? If not, I hope you guys are getting a BIG advance for that otherwise, you are fool to give away so much for nothing. Make sure that their PR will be more than just sending a press release and a newsletter.

Bullet Skater was at one point signed to Chillingo. The terms vary from deal to deal.

a few words....

They have a NDA so we are not allowed to tell you much, just:
They are nice guys and you can negotiate with them (make sure you do that).
Make sure you read the contract very carefully and consider things like: do I really want to share my IP and code etc?
Follow a few of their titels on App Annie...so you can see how much an average titel is really going to make (not their 5 best selling titels)
