Does anyone know of any good websites that will pay you a percent of the ad money that comes in on the webpage that has your game on it? That is the way I would want to do it. It would be good if the game was able to be playable online as well. It doesn't have to be exclusive to Game Maker.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks.

You can try Adf.ly. I've seen tons of people use it.

EDIT: Heh, kidna misunderstood your post. Sorry.

Gamejolt used to do that. They might still do that.

You can place ad's (i.e. Google ones) on your own website on download page. That's the best logical solution.

GameJolt is indeed inactive, however revenue is still gained from ad's (even while rates seem to be downed a lot due to spam all over the site), and placing game as hidden (not visible to public) would probably work.

AdFly grants $1 for every ~700 views, however it cannot be called a loyal service - publishers often abuse the system, hiding 'skip' button and forcing visitor to do actions that would cost more otherwise. So its a question - do you want to make 700 players wait 5 seconds before downloading your game (or not to download it at all) to earn $1?

If my posts contain broken links, try looking around my website. I gradually make blog posts for any examples I make.

I found IndieCity. Has anyone used that? Is it a good service?

Indiecity is one of the most recent indie versions of steam. If you want more information, I suggest talking to LegacyChrono :)
