Actually chris that was very much the stratogy with entombed.

there were ten or so betas of the first eight floors to the dungeon produced in the first 18 months before the game went commercial, after that point there were several more commercial releases that fixed bugs and added to the game, so it is actually possible to have a successive commercial release so long as you make sure that there is a decent sized enough demo for people to play and to add to before you bring out the ful game and start working on that for your paying customers.

Beware the grue!
