ALPHAFUNDING +FAILED+ | TEAM GOT DISPERSED In order to continue development, we have to put a new team together, and fund the game through alternative source of funding. That will take some time. This project has not been abandoned. Unless information comes from the official source, please disregard online rumors. Indie game dev is a very tough business and the year 2013 is even tougher due to many new indie studios funded by former AAA developers. Competition for human resources and funding is fierce. People who believed it the game and ordered alpha - huge thank you, you will never be forgotten and when the game is resurrected, we will make it up to you, somehow. Thank you for understanding.

Can it not be done through Desura? I really don't want yet another website account. It'd be nice even if I could just buy without creating an account.

I also wanted the SS DLC.

SS DLC is available in our webshop at
If we sell it through Desura, it will be more expensive.

Tomes of Mephistopheles will be coming to Desura hopefully this week (I already submitted all files).

Why will it be more expensive?
I can understand that Desura might get a certain percent of the income, but considering the much bigger userbase that might see your game, I think it might not be necessary to raise the price.

We already considered it. Our first game, Steel Storm got into Top 100 during IOTY2010. And somehow, despite that and being on Desura, all the profit came from Steam and relatively nothing came from Desura.
