Making free games and profiting on it?

Hi Andreas,

Some had success on free software by selling the executable of their 
application, as it is in itself a commodity for Windows and MacOSX 
users, may also work for GNU/Linux users too.

You may also offer executable with some limited access to your application.

Not sure it will turn to be successful if you offer additional services 
against a fee as you described:  it will be an additional strain, 
distracting you from developing your application.

Best wishes of successes
