My sissy excuse is that I have no way to get the money to Nifflas, 'cause I'm too young to have a paypal account. I'd gladly pay the 17 bucks for the game, but I guess it'll have to wait.
Can't you arrange something with your parents? Like that they keep it from your allowance? Or perhaps get the game for Christmas? :)

Well, I tried already, but no luck... My parents (and family) are completely computer illiterate, they're the kind that believe that paying through the Internet will get them scammed and lose all the money in their bank account.

Hey, charity, your name seems awfully familiar, but...
Also why do I think of Niffchat now all of a sudden.

Well they didn't even know what it is, and they googled it and happened to find this page: http://www.paypalsucks.com/, so, long story short, I can't really say they trust it :/

Wow, and I thought my parents were noobs...
There is complaint- and hate sites of everything, but don't take them seriously because... well they are trying to brainwash you.
Good, though extreme, example: http://www.godhatestheworld.com

Wow, LimeLemon, I've never seen a better example of Poe's Law. If they're serious, that site is terrible, but if they're trolling, it's fantastic<3

that is very unlucky for you. :(

to answer the topic, i played the demo the day it was released and then bought the full version the day after (along with an extra code for a friend). this game rocks my socks so hard.

Did you already pick a friend to give the extra code to? If not, I'll be happy to pay you $2 to give it to Candlelight.  C)p

Bought and finished. That was a nice afternoon treat for myself after finishing my last exam! I'd already voted for "playing the demo and buying afterwards," however. There's a good chance that that survey will get pretty inaccurate pretty quickly as people buy it.

Did someone already give you their code, karooble? I picked up the extra code without really having anyone to give it to (none of my friends would appreciate this game), I just figured I might as well for an extra two bucks. It's up for grabs if anyone wants it, free of charge!

Just as soon as that second email arrives, that is...

No, I haven't found anyone with an extra code yet. But I'm more likely to be able to buy the game than Candlelight is, so I think they deserve it more for now. :) I'd love to play the full game soon (I've played through the demo twice already), but I can wait if I must.  :^^: Candlelight should have it!

Works for me! Still no followup email, though, so whoever gets it will still have to wait until it comes.

Until then, I think I'll go scan through the Secrets thread to make sure I found everything...  8D

Maybe you should send her a PM to let her(him?) know -- she's going to be overjoyed! :D I'm touched by how sweet people on this forum are. You've just made someone's Christmas, Muttroid. <3

You guys are such nice people, it's not often that one finds such solidarity, especially directed towards people who are almost complete strangers. It's actions like those that still give me some faith in the world. :)

You both have my deepest respect. :)
