Making economically profitable open source games

07 September 2012 - 04:25 AM

Well, I basically had an idea and wanted to see if it is realistic from a legal point of view.

Imagine that a company develops a video game, but instead of publishing it, it gives the game
an "economical value" that they think is adecuate to cover the invested resources. Then
they make a public donation site with the goal of earning this quantity from people who freely donate money.
Once they they achieve the goal money, they release the game with an open source licence.

How about it?
