    I really think that is a great long-term business model:

    "As soon as we've taken ?X in sales we will open source the game."

    I think a lot of people would buy the game if there was a decent chance it would be open sourced later.

    That's awesome! I was not at all sure that it would happen when looking at the stats last night... Some serious "bidding" in the last hours I reckon.

    No credits to Phoronix here, which only wrote about it after the 1M$ deadline...

    How awesome is that?!

    I'm dying to get my grubby, greedy hands on the Aquaria source code!

    Now all we need is for Ubuntu 10.10 to include one of those games in the default installation.

    I really hope developers see there really is a marked for Linux and openness.

    Phoronix: Four Indie Games Going Open-Source!

    This month there's been the Humble Indie bundle whereby anyone can purchase this game bundle consisting of World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru, and Penumbra Overture for any price they want. Part of the proceeds would be donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play Charity. With the success of this bundle, they then decided if they generate more than a million dollars in revenues they would open-source the games. Well, they have achieved this milestone!..
