    Well, We can hope it will be released soon. I couldn't find a publisher.:(
    I can't publish it myself, don't have money...:(

    You don't need to have money to publish it yourself. There are a lot of free ways to promote/ hype your game. Of course having a publisher helps :)

    Just check: https://www.buildbox.com/forum/index.php?forums/game-marketing.9/
    You will find ways that helps you. But you need to make some effort, sitting and doing nothing hoping your game becomes successful will not work ;)

    Thanks for the reply.
    I've sent mails to 5 Publishers. Hope they like it.

    Even if they don't, have an alternative. My friend, who has a developer account on google.

    Amazon App Store is also free to publish on.

    Good luck! I'd definitely remove the crazy spawning on the character select screen :)

    That is a part of Menu. I removed it but the Menu looks boring.
    So, I guess the spawning makes it look more alive.

    Maybe tone down the spawner? That suggestion came from someone with 8 or more features on App Store... Might want to listen...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely tweak the spawner. And if possible replace it with some other elements.

    So, I did change the spawning and I must say, It now looks better than before.
    Really grateful for your suggestion.

    But unfortunately. I am dumping the game. None of the company accepted the game. Big failure, I think.
    Thank you everyone for Support.

    Why is it a failure? Just publish the game - You only fail if you quit :)

    I'd definitely do whatever it takes to earn the money to get your developer account - work some jobs to reach that $99 - shouldn't be too hard

    Don't get too disheartened. At least some publishers looked at your game - many devs don't even get that far. You have many options. You can look at their feedback and make any adjustments they suggested and/or tweak your game and polish it further then release it yourself.

    Whilst you are polishing, prepare press releases, screen shots, trailers any back story and send it to the app gaming sites - post on forums like Touch arcade - build up some awareness.

    Last year I released a match 3 game on iOS and didn't expect much from it but did those steps above. Although no press sites covered it(expected as it wasn't really a game changing match 3 game! lol but theres never any harm trying) - posting on forums generated enough interested for it to achieve almost 50k downloads on day #1 which really opened my eyes! The advertising from that paid for the app in just one day.

    You have choices.

    Exactly...It is not required to have a publisher to release a game... If no one wants it... Release yourself... You might have a hit on your hands and make a publisher regret turning it down

    Hey.... Chin up dude... there are many of us here who just publish games ourselves if it doesn't get accepted by publishers... The moment you give up is the moment you fail :) All the best to your game
