Tiny Prison is trying something a little different with the pay model. It does have a freemium element, but I would call it Shareware + Freemium. The game is free to download and there is a one time $1.99 purchase of an expansion that offers additional features. This feels like a win-win to me, because the customer can try the game for free, and we can reach more customers and give them a chance to make a purchase that they might have never made otherwise. At that point there is still a classic freemium model but for those that don't like to participate, you will not hit any sort of pay walls that try to squeeze you into spending another dollar.

If I was a customer of this game I would only be spending $2 and I imagine that most of the gamers on this forum have a similar disposition.

^I like pay-once-to-play-forever payment options.

Perma-unlock IAPs are always acceptible to me.

Yes, that is basically trial + unlock. Even Sid Meier did that on iPhone, and it sounds like a fair model to me.

I would love to give this one a try if you still want some beta users.

You should maybe change the name before you release it, I seriously doubt Nimblebit will just sit back and let you ride off their name.

It'd be so much less hassle in the long-run.

Do they own the rights to the word "Tiny"? I don't think so

I'm not a lawyer, but I observed that there are already multiple games on the marketplace that use the word "Tiny". A lawyer once told me that even if they don't have a copyright on specific words such as "Tiny" (which I assume they don't) one can still get into trouble if it can be demonstrated in court that customers confuse one brand for another.
