2d Boy: Results of the “Pay-What-You-Want” World of Goo Sale

, , , ,

Great detail and some analysis from 2d boy. Points of interest:

  • A not-insignificant portion of purchases were for less than 30 cents, which PayPal took all of.
  • There are a lot of charts and stuff in the post, I love them for the amount of detail they’ve gone into and shared with the rest of us.
  • They say 57,000 copies at about 2.03 per copy. By my math, that’s $115,710, not counting PayPal fees OR the spike in their Steam (+40%) and WiiWare (+9%) sales over the same period. Not a bad chunk of change.
  • They’ve extended the sale to October 25th. If you haven’t bought it yet, the only way to redeem yourself is to do so now, and pay more than $2.03.

Overall, sounds like a win for everybody.
