Web game distribution portals

How It Works

Web game distribution portals is a widely spread way to distribute a browser game. Each portal Xsolla Partner Network works with (such as GameFlare or Kizi) contains hundreds of categorized games, and gamers can choose any of them and play for free right on the portal. The number of users on each portal can reach tens of thousands, and you will get access to this entire audience.

If you choose to use Xsolla to work with web game distribution portals, your game will be published on each of them both in the Xsolla catalog and on the portal itself.
