DEVELOPER = writes and desings the game
PUBLISHER = makes thousands or millions of copies of the game(s) to be sold

Take Battlefield 2 for example...

DICE is the devolper. and EA Games is the publisher. The developer is the team/company that designs the game. The publisher is the one who markets and sells the game. Developers are the one's making the games and tryign to sell them to publishers, such as EA Games.

Go to ITT Technical Institute. They have a program specifically designed and structered for those who want to design specifically video games. I suggest you check it out.
