Anyone using gamedistribution.com as a publisher?

Recommended Posts

I love a good online mystery. (a guilty pleasure of mine, I must admit.)

So I decided to do some digging. pro style. ^_^

Here's what I found:

As for the origin of the company being in Turkey, there is some credibility to that, as can be seen on their LinkedIn account. (See Screenshot)

They also have taken some serious liberties on their Github account, like with Phaser. (Not forked, straight up lifted- see link and screenshot)

Their domains are protected from whois search for registrar info with a solid lock, so it would cost money to actually find any previous records.

And the venturebeat article linked to above is valid, so they obviously are not strapped for cash in any way that would prevent them from paying devs.

Finally, to address their complaint to bestgames above to not give out their personal info, maybe a better solution would be to just pay the devs that have been helping you make so much money that you can buy other companies with it?

I've provided screenshots because I've noticed their account on here is actually following these threads. (You can see that on people's profile pages, you know?)

I hope that helps people with their assessment of their available options for online distribution. ^_^

EDIT -- February 4th 2019:

I've recently noticed that they've taken a sudden interest in my online profiles after this post. (See screenshot) And I don't think it's to see if I want to submit games.

@ShrewdPixel Yes, exactly! Gamedistribution is not a reliable company! Their monthly revenue is millions euro .. and do not want to pay developers, this is stupid! 

Gamedistribution is Turkish based company. GD owner https://www.linkedin.com/in/eerturk/ and in 2017-2018 was  acquired by Orange Games.

https://tunnl.com/#team

They earn millions euros and they don't want pay a few hundred bucks?? Their business model is based on 33% revenue share with fixed rate = this mean when you will have more, more games as publisher and your games will serve more ads impressions Gamedistribution will earn more money than you. This is classic PONZI scheme where they get 68% Adsence earnings - throught DoubleClick actually Google AdManager. Now their company has investment fund called "Azerionhttps://www.azerion.com/, you canunderstand why they don't want pay or pay after half year. (https://www.zonebourse.com/ADUX-23160243/actualite/AdUX-a-leve-1-5-million-d-euros-Azerion-a-22-4-27642661/)

They just need over 10M -  50M on investments and developers / publishers are for them only "money makers".

Some example:

Gross revenue 100 = Adsence give them 68, They take 38 as fee and your revenue will be 30 (their system "optimization" system Tunnl calculated your revenue 2x smaller than your real/actual revenue from Google Adx ads) = if it pays you at all HAHAHA @GameDistribution Support, after they have 68 and you nothing...

With more, more ads impressions their system Tunnl started calculated smaller and smaller revenue, 2x smaller, 3x smaller (on 1,000,000 impressions you will earn almost the same revenue as on 4,000,000 impressions, but they get many more money)
