A few days ago I came across this blogpost and despite it was about videogames (usually not my main interest) I wanted to take a further look into it.
It revealed to be a very interesting examples how a new software distribution model is possibile. The main ingredient of success are: pay what you want, DRM free software, support charity and let’s add direct contact with the developers. They have already sold 107K bundles so far, and they got more than 500K$ in revenues. A very brilliant result!
I wanted to take part of the experience and I bought a bundle for 25$. At the moment I’m only playing “Trine”, the first game of the bundle and I like it very much. Money well spent!
