Tomes of Mephistopholes sees paid alpha release

Tomes of Mephistopheles, a first-person action RPG taking place across randomly generated dungeons and an equally-randomly-generated overworld, has reportedly entered a paid alpha stage. The devs sum it up as follows: “Following the alpha funding model, we offer gamers immediate access to the early alpha of Tomes of Mephistopheles, free updates and a free final version of the game once it’s released.”

The purchase page adds more details:

This is an alpha funding project. The price of the game will be going up as we add more content to it. By purchasing Tomes of Mephistopheles right now, you will be getting at at the lowest price possible and will be granted all future updates for the title for free, including final release of the game.

You can currently buy into the alpha for $10.00. The purchase page makes no mention of Mac support, but Windows and Linux are evidently supported. Kot-in-Action have helpfully provided alpha footage of the game so you can see for yourself where it’s at and decide if this is a train you want to climb aboard (metaphorically speaking–it’s a game, not a train, and I take no responsibility if you actually try to climb on it).
