I don't want to pay, like 30 bucks for this game! It's not like it sucks, but 30 bucks is a bit much for me to pay at the moment, considering I can't get a job yet. Is there any way to get some sort of discount or package?

There's no way you'll be able to get this game if you have less than $30 to spend (unless you wait for the next sale — they tend to have one per year or so). You can get it in combination with other games at a discount, but the total price tag of the games will still exceed $30.

Think about how much you're getting for $30, though — literally hundreds upon hundreds of hours of gameplay with well over two hundred scenarios.

Get a paper route, mow lawns, scrap aluminum cans, whatever.
You'll find a way.
Every day you wait is a day you miss out playing them at all. :D

I forgot to say - right now for me, it's like 40-45 bucks for me and my canadian ways. (Maple Syrup isn't as delicious as they say. Quite expensive too. Table is just fine.)
I also want the editor, which adds another like, 10-15 bucks. I need 50 dollars cad for the game and scenario editor.I can't exactly make much recycling the cans and bottles around the house, it's only about 1.80/wk!

Not only does it come with the game, it's actually free with the demo. If you have the demo, you probably already have the editor.

As was alluded to above, if you buy any other game at the same time you can get BoE at a discounted price (namely, $15).

What you do:

1) Find parent.

2) Ask parent if you can donate blood.

3) When they ask why, tell them that you really need 50 bucks.

4) Parent will give you a few alternate suggestions on how to earn 50 bucks. Take them.

Do you have the demo for E3 and need to register it inorder to use the character editor? That would make more sense.

There are lots of ways to earn money. I got myself a paper route in grade school. Lemonade stand is a classic (though I don't think it's ever brought in much in reality). Offering to do yard work for the neighbors. If you're involved with a church, offer your general services to the congregation. Tell your teachers your trying to earn some money and see if they have anything for you to do. Basically just ask everyone you know if there's anything (within reason) that they'd pay you to do for them. (Just use your common sense for what you agree to do. ;) )

You better not say the profits are going to you. You should say they're going to a "worthy cause." That sounds much better. :P

So, if they have no better suggestions, just give blood. :P Or maybe a kidney.

A leg or two works too. You won't need it for playing BoE anyway.

Gizmo, are you saying that spreading the joy of BoE isn't a worthy cause?

When I was younger me and my mates used to go and bang on people's doors with a bucket of water, offering to wash cars. Don't know if you do that sort of thing over there?

...so?

I mean, why on earth would it worry her if you're doing odd jobs and earning money, unless you're selling drugs or something.

Sit her down at the computer, point out the game, and tell her you want it so much you're willing to work for it. You said she enjoyed E3, too, right? She should be more then happy to let you earn it, considering she won't buy it for you.

Cash in hand is legal, isn't it? Officially it's not a transaction - you're just helping a few people out of the goodness of your heart, and they're giving you a gift of a certain sum of money out of the goodness of their heart and to encourage you to keep on being such a good kid. Or something like that.
