"How to approach a game publisher? Go to conventions, be friendly, give a killer elevator pitch. If they want to play, even better.

"Know the publishers. Don’t pitch a gross zombie game to a family-friendly publishing company.

"It goes without saying that you should also know the games that the company publishes. Play them. Don’t pitch clones.
