Chinese publisher

Hi there,

does anybody here any experience with Chinese publisher iPlayJoy?

Their representative has contacted us with the opportunity to publish our previous games (Android version) in China. I realize that Google Play is not "mainstream" in China market, so it could be an interesting way... But only what they want to is implement their own ad system or something, which won´t be in conflict with our own, they even translate the game for free. And this sounds kind a...

Thx for any feedback!

Hi, well, we are preparing a build for them. But for now I can say, they are nice and helpful. But well, the most important will be results after submitting our game on Chinese stores. So, we are still waiting...

If you do not give them access to your code, you should be fine ;-)

If your game is already out in the west it's likely already pirated in China so there's not a lot you need to worry about. The worst that can happen is getting stuck with a bad, real publisher without an option to switch to a good one if you get an offer.

Yeah, the game is already published, but problem is that Google Play in China is really not the main source for Android games.

We've just been contacted by them as well. @Alda Games: Do you have anything new to add? Is it working out?

Well, we have managed some additional downloads, must admit it, but about the revenue, it cannot be said the same. But it costed us nothing but little of time.
