First of all, I know I'm gonna get bombarded with questions like "how can I become a VIP member?"...."my code isn't working"...etc. Just follow the steps below carefully and it will work out. Again, this is definitely a YMMV since it only works for VIP members. I wasn't sure if it was going to work for me because I haven't spent a ton of money on their website this year but I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had it showing on my account. Don't quote me on this, but I think as long as you've made at least 1 purchase from them this year, you should be good to go. Again, that's just an educated guess so don't start flaming me if it doesn't work for you. In the past, they used to give VIP status to anyone who created an account with them but I don't think that is true anymore.
It will say:
"Just for you - Save an extra 15% on the Holiday Sale." with a green button just below it.
You do not want this one. Instead, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page.
There you will find another green button that says "GET YOUR CODE" which you will find next to the "Mystery Sale" icon.
Step 4: Click on the green button and it should reveal a voucher code that looks like this:
(The voucher code is unique so do not copy & paste the example provided here)
Step 5: Now go ahead add the 'Mystery Game' to your shopping cart.
Step 6: When you proceed to the check out process, you will see a section where it says "Apply voucher code" or similar. Copy & paste your voucher code from Step 4. Make absolutely certain that when you copy & paste it, you include the hashtag symbol (#) exactly as I've shown in the example otherwise, you'll get an error message saying 'sorry, your code is invalid'. If you've done it correctly, the price will drop from $1 to $0 (FREE).
The section where you enter the voucher code will appear BEFORE you you get to the payment/credit card information screen so if the website is asking you to enter your payment information, you've gone too far and you need to back up. I did not have to enter any credit card information whatsoever when I did this.
At the end of the check out process, it should spit out a game key which you can activate on Steam.

This is the cheapest this game has ever been and probably will be. I bought because I want to support the developers. Please do not debate early access here.
1/4 chapters available, about 3 hours. I've been following development for quite a while, and am confident the developers will deliver.
I consider myself a pretty big fan of this sort of game (amnesia, SOMA, dead space, most recently Transcendence, outlast, etc) and this felt like the scariest 3 hours of my life. Set a deal alert for new underwear.
