Devs: What To Do When You Find Your Game Being Resold In China
For new developers just starting out making Android games, trying to decide how to properly publish their new game can be a daunting task to say the least. Releasing a new game on Android is a completely different beast than any other platform and is much more complex than many might first suspect. As poor of an experience as the Google Play Store can be sometimes it still provides developers with an easily accessible entry point to get their game on the market due to the ability to self-publish, but it doesn’t begin to cover all the other Android users around the globe who don’t have access to the Google Play Store and instead use region specific app storefronts that have their own thriving eco-system unto themselves.
Sadly, most developers aren’t able to take advantage of these additional publishing options due to language barriers and unfamiliarity with local business practices which leads to a very unfortunate but all too often occurrence; Someone else pirates their game and starts illegally selling it themselves in countries like China, consistently netting downloads in the millions and profiting off of the hard work of an indie developer on the other side of the world who is often left with little to no recourse.
That’s why i’m genuinely pleased to let developers know that help has arrived.
