Sounds like another "publisher won't pay-up" thing..

Figures... but under what circumstances, i.e.;

1. We don't pay out unless you've reached $14 bazillion - even though your contract doesn't mention that.
2. We've paid already.
3. We just don't owe you anything.
4. I'll pass this on to someone who won't e-mail you to resolve it.

Heard them all.

Exent runs http://www.freeridegames.com/

We've had issues nearly from day one with them, they use to work directly with iWin. Back in 2014 iWin stopped being a partner with them and we had to sign a contract with them directly.

They have always been late with payments and like getting blood out of a stone trying to get the royalty statements sent to us... but now they main finance staffer has left the company they told us we would have to wait till the start of August to give them time to sort it out... but here we are still waiting. We've been sending emails nearly daily now and no one is getting back to us and we even have the CEO's direct email!!!!

So we've decided to terminate our contract with them, lets see if they get back to us now!

Well they finally got back to our termination email... and they say they will "cure" the breach, we will see...

Yes, you get a lot of empty promises from lots of companies, if you threaten to quit.
:/

Good luck!

Heard the same shit from Immanitas when I told them they were in breach of contract and they claimed "no, because we put it right". But it keeps happening again, and again, and again. And once again they're a month late with royalty reports.

My advice? Get the hell out, and make sure every gamedev knows what they're like.
