As for your theory, if the bulk of the sales happens at a 66%-75% off sales, the message to the devs isn't 'you did good, shovel some more', it's 'your game is only worth a couple of bucks, do better next time'.

On a more theoretical note, a TV series like 'The Pacific' benefits from high production values to make it look more authentic and realistic. A BBC3 sitcom like 'Him & Her' which takes place in a single apartment could have a massive budget, but that wouldn't make the show any better. What I'm trying to say is, a developer can work to the strengths of his small budget and deliver a better game than the multi-million AAA title which are rapidly degenerating into interactive movies.
Very well said, and you took the words out of my mouth.

I was going to say, would Reservoir Dogs had benefited from a larger budget and higher production values, or BBC's Bottom (jokes the likes of Sir Ade and Sir Rick need no production values)?

For that amount of money yeah, why not? But I advise everyone that the gam isn't good at all.
