I've noticed on Apple Store (and I assume on Google Playstore too) I find different games and apps in France than in the US. Does this mean if my company resides in a small country and I register my game in this country, it'll only be shown to users of my country? Or is it just a matter of some settings and I can decide to be shown all around the world, for instance for American users (which is a larger market than my country), same as game producers living there?
Does a game developer's country of residence influence how many downloads world-wide he can reach at all?
My question is about Apple Store and Google Playstore, but answers for other platforms are welcome too.
