We've published our game with them and I've been trying to get in touch with them since they havent released any reports for us since July.

The person that used to be the contact person seems no longer online

*if any of you guys know how to contact them and would like to share with me, that'll be really helpful

Thanks
I have some or all of my apps on the Chinese game site. Recently I received a report of earning. It is general. It did not specify the games and it was sent to me on excel.

I am sure there is a back end for developers with proper reporting. I will ask my programmer who set everything up. I know that as a Canadian I could not register with TenCents to collect the revenue. My wife had to use her Chinese id to make everything work. So it may not be possible for developer from the outside to access this market.

Well,
I'm really trying to contact them (IPlayJoy) for the past few days since I haven't heard anything from them in awhile now.

Is there anyone dealing with IPlayJoy at the moment?

Give me the contact information - phone number in China and address. I can get in touch with them and find out if they are still in business

I am going to my office and will ask my brother in law to check them out.

We actually got in touch with them yesterday and clear the issue.
In general I think you should give any publisher the benefits of a doubt (I always do).

I may have hastened to blame them. I did not find evidence that they stole my game. I apologize for snap judgment. But after the last message(

We've tested it and will upload to the stores soon.
) I could not contact them, exactly as it was not the game starts.

If it is necessary, I can send a link to the apps. But I am not active user of the forum and register only to warn that you should not trust them fully.

So is there any update on this publisher?

We were also approached by them (commercial officer named Serena) and intrigued by their offer of publishing and distributing in China as well as the free localisation, our game is very text heavy after all.

When we asked for more details about their business offer they went silent.

Did anyone else here also get the silent treatment or do they usually reply after a while? In our case it has been around a week.


Cheers

Going silent is a China way of dealing with having to give a straight black and white answer. I have a few businesses in China and come across this many times. One of the people I do business with who has spent many years in China working with major companies from the USA says it is the deer / head light problem. Once the deer sees the head lights it freezes.

I can say I have had some good results in China with the games my programmer launch here. The problem is the reports to payment are general. Everything is lumped up into one report and payment. I have not investigated it to see if I am missing something in the info because my main interest is to deal with the market outside of the USA. But if you are dealing with a company which is going to lump up all the apps the payment if it is as I understand it will be general so I don't know how they will know how much to pay you.

Thanks for the info 1stSPIN,

As you mentioned the cultural barrier is probably also a factor- I guess time will tell. Cheers!
