The Ransom Method for financing games

NPR's On the Media interviewed two guys who made a dice game called Meatbot Massacre and used what they call the Ransom Method to finance it. Might be a good model for casual game development.

They made $600 on the game, but I imagine there is an economy of scale there - the more games they release using the Ransom method that get a good response, the higher they can set their goal for future games (as their reputation increases).

More info is available at the Meatbot Massacre web site.
