But it's just a list...
I have small platform game. Where can I publish it?
I won't get this information from this list. (Does Ubisoft publish my small game for child?)

I'm want to publish my first game and I really need help from people like you.
Why you don't give some more information?
-Which publisher do you prefer most(at the begining).
-How much is it possible to earn? (10$, 100$, or mayby 1000$?)

1. I suggest you read my article on game publishing, at http://www.sloperama.com/advice/article60.htm - it contains a lot of information that could be useful for you (if not the answers to the questions you are actually asking).
2. You have to do research. You have to do the research yourself. You're in business now, and this is a normal part of doing business.
3. You were asking someone to do your research for you. People could reasonably charge money for that kind of thing. It's your business, so you should do your own research.
4. Normally when someone publishes your game for you, you get a percentage of the sales. You should do more reading on the topic. Like http://www.obscure.co.uk/articles-2/computer-game-publishing/ for instance.

Of course you will. You go through the list, look at the companies web sites, to see if they publish games like yours, then contact the ones that fit your needs.

How are we supposed to give you more information. We know nothing about your game, your experience, your needs. We can't tell you which publisher is right for you... you need to make that decision based on your research.
How much will your game earn? Anything from zero to millions of $. I have no idea where your game fits in there because it will depend on the quality of the game, how well it is marketed and also a big amount of pure luck that lots of people decide that this is a game they want to play.

Yea, I know it's my interest to find publisher.
But I'm confused becouse it's my first game and I'm afraid about publish it in another countrys.
I have already submit contract with Poland's publisher. I sold license for 4 countrys: Poland, Hungardy, Slovakia, Czech Republic.
Will it be a problem if I want to publish it in other websites?

This is what my game looks like:

It's completly different from other games on BigFish, Reflexive etc.
So I don't know do they want to publish it.
I have already writted to BigFish and I'm waiting for resonse.

So, how the platform games' situation looks?


Thanks for articles.
I will read it.

No problem.

You need to read the articles you have been pointed to above.
Good luck.

That will depend on the terms of the contract you already signed. Is it for online or offline sales (or both) and does it have any clauses that would limit your right to sell the game elsewhere?

There is writed in contract that I'm selling license for 4 countrys.
Nothing more.

I email BigFish but they didn't answer. I sent my email in saturday, tooday is tuesday...
Perhaps, my game isn't AAA :)

Tonight I will read all the articles (I haven't got time before).
I have more question.
I signed contract with my publisher. He sold my game offline and online. But online doesn't mean - "Pay and download". It's just a online shop.
How this situation looks in other countrys? ''Pay and Download'' is most popular for casual games, isn't it?
