I'm surprised this hasn't been posted yet, but the developers of Crayon Physics have a deal similar to World of Goo sometime last year where you're able to pay whatever you'd like for the game.

If you plan on donating for the game, please remember that there is a paypal fee for money transfers. So sending them 1 cent won't do any good for the developers unless you really don't care to support them and just want a free game.

Deal was taken from Slickdeals.

Doesn't paypal deduct $5? If they do, anything less than $5.01 is pretty much useless. Either way, I played the online flash version and liked it. Anyone who went through with this - do you get a code or account or something similar in case you need to re-install it?

I think it's 30 cents + 2.9% of the transfer value.

If the fee is passed to you, it is 2.9% plus $0.30 USD of the amount you receive. For example, if you are sent $100.00 USD by credit card, the fee would be $3.20 USD ($2.90 + $0.30).

I paid 2.50. Maybe I can get my wife to play the game.

I really dig these pay what you want deals. If more games were offered like this, I think there would be a lot less pirating going on.

And a lot less money to be made.

Say 1 person bought call of duty mw2 at $60 and others paid $2.50 each, it would take 24 people to make up the cost of 1 person and 23 pirating it.

I think gaming companies will tell you they will take the gamble.

Just bought it for a penny, sweet. Since it was a donation I believe paypal does not take any money from fees.

That's a good point.

Yeah something like this will obviously make less money, but a big sale like what steam had during the holidays where it was around 50% off and lots of advertising, mostly word of mouth, can even things out or even make more than the MSRP.

Over a year ago didn't L4D sales rise above 1000% when they had a big sale on the game? Just goes to show that lower prices will result in better sales/revenue and game prices are too high.

One of the reasons why I'll never buy a 360 or PS3. I'm not paying $60 for a game. Never.
