Ok its a bit diffrent because the money wasnt for the devs but the idea is atleast intresting. The dlc added some graffiti by real artists to the game. Base price 0,25 $ but people could also pay up to 30 $ if they wanted.
Yeah, that was cool. I think that it was more about the idea than about the expansion by itself. Offering an exclusive car with some custom design and paint job, but still with the same handling as some other type of car in-game so others are not in disadvantage, could work nicely for pay-what-you-want. Actually, I would do it a la Humble Bundle style and give players some incentive to pay more (say 10 USD) by offering something extra on top, like a custom weapon effects. That would be consistent with what they are doing now in pre-order stage. This kind of stuff is almost universally met with positive public response.
