Can't unlock Episode 1?

I preordered the full season, and downloaded Homestar Ruiner just a little while ago. After installing and running it for the first time, it of course asked me to login. I did that (may have typoed my password, but pretty sure I didn't). It then brought me to the "thanks for trying!" page, and suggests that I buy it, but the "launch game!" button is there too. Only, once actually in-game I can't tell if it's the demo or not, and I don't really want to try and find the end of the demo when I actually did -buy- the game.

So basically, if it's telling me to buy the episode or season "for more fun" and says "thanks for trying" but gives absolutely no other indication that it's a demo, have I successfully unlocked it? I have uninstalled and reinstalled, and cannot get it to give me another chance to login, or find anywhere to put in my serial number.

    Yes. I thought there was a bug at first when I saw that same screen (stating "Please pay" but having no serial code box), so I decided to play through the game until it would kick me out so that I can enter the serial number, but it turns out that that never happened when I played through the game, so yeah, it's registered.

    Trust me, even if it says that, you can still play the full game.
