Well this seems a little premature, but I'm sure no-one will complain! Jason Rohrer's two-player story-telling game Sleep Is Death is now available for whatever price you want to pay for it.

Simply head over to SleepIsDeath.net and enter your cash amount into the box. There's a minimum price of $1.75, but it's worth way more than that anyway.

I'm being a little speculative here, but this would suggest that SiD didn't sell all that well after the initial release - which begs the question, why not? The game received glowing reviews from a variety of sites and magazines - including a 90% from PC Gamer UK.

[EDIT: Sister site GameSetWatch notes that "The game has already sold some 4,000 copies as of April 30th -- 2,600 of which were $9 preorders and the remaining priced at $14 apiece, making the developer $43,000 so far. While that's only a fraction of what most major titles sell/make, Rohrer said he's pleased with those numbers, as he keeps all the profit instead of receiving just a cut." It's up to you if you consider this 'selling well'.]

Did you grab a copy when it was full price? Let me know in the comments what attracted you/put you off trying it out.
