sleeponthemic (1253494) writes "Developer 2D Boy has posted the final results of their "pay what you want" experiment, selling their World of Goo game for an unrestricted price. After coming to the attention of slashdot a further ~26,000 sales were recorded for a total of 83,147. Note that publicizing crucial mid sale statistics — such as the revelation that ~17,000 people chose to "donate" $0.01 seems to have affected the average donation, which increased from $2.03 to above $3, by the end of the week."
