Developer looking for publisher- any recommendations?

Good evening,

Currently on the look out in exploring if a publisher would be benifical for my game. Not looking for any major big company ones. Just the Smaller ones would be great. If you happen to come across any or know some or even work as one, please hit me up a PM. Or let me know here.
So far just looking into them and what they offer and what I can offer.

Thanks in advanced

    i usually go into a contract with my developers if they want me to publish there games for them i take 10% basically 7 cent and thats pretty low...apple gets 30 cent and you get 63 cent if you were to sell your game for .99cent

    .i market your game to generate more sales(ads, youtube, social network, word of mouth, etc)
    .keep you updated on sales, net
    .sometimes i'll ask if developers can create a special game for holidays like( christmas, halloween,thanksgiving) and pay them extra in advance and still give them there royalties
    .i dont own any ownership to any of the developer games just the right to help market and publish them.

    You could take a look at some of the trade shows where you can pitch your app not only to review sites but also some publishers.

    I doubt a large publisher will take a GameSalad App.

    You don't need a publisher. You need a great game.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    Oh and @team6labs that not true. I have turned down a very successful publisher for a GameSalad app.

    Also several people have been approached by chillingo. The only problem with them is their require their sdk be integrated and alas that is a limitation of GS.

    Honestly @team6labs if you think GameSalad is so worthless why on earth are you here? It seems like every time I see you post its trolling someone about how GameSalad sucks.

    @tenrdrmer Which publisher? And yes, people have been approached by Chillingo, but they can't publish it because of the lack of an SDK implementation.

    I don't give praise when praise isn't deserved.

    Wrong. It's all about the quality of the app, not the engine. And guess what gamesalad makes great apps if you know what you're doing. Is it the most powerful and comprehensive? No. Is it Capable? Yes.

    And yes publishers will publish Gamesalad games.

    Often times publishers will approach you if they are interested in a project, but a few come to mind.

    FDG, DotEmu, Ayopa, Forest Moon (Crescent Moon), etc.

    @team6labs Ayopa has been in talks with others as well a myself for GameSalad made games. The trouble is they want to big of a piece if the pie otherwise I would have given them a shot. They had no issue at all with gamesalad being the engine.

    How is praise not deserved? You talk as though you are a successful app developer with all this wisdom and insight into the business. Yet your what maybe 18 and fresh out of highschool if that??

    You should really step down off your high horse. I have no issue at all with people criticizing GameSalad for a specific fault or lacking but "GameSalad just sucks in general" type comments are in no way constructive to anyone. They really seem like they are just meant to fully discourage and/or belittle anyone who want to give it a shot or is using GameSalad for thier games.

    I'm actually quite surprised you didn't offer your own GameSalad exclusive publishing service you used to spam the forums with. Let me guess it didn't work out and now somehow that means GameSalad sucks?? Please stop trolling the forums. If you have something constructive to add by all means or if you have a question about how to use GameSalad then by all means do so but please stop trolling the forums for the sole purpose of bashing GameSalad.

    Cheers
