Friday the 13th: The Game Launch Hits Bad Luck

Friday the 13th: The Game launched on Friday the 25th on Steam, but it's still been bad luck for the launch of this movie tie-in, despite almost 40 years to work on it since the launch of the first film in the series (thanks GameInformer). The problems are pretty significant, gauging by this wall of text post on Facebook discussing them. They go into individual issues and how to work around them. There is also an update on Kickstarter on the topic, also discussing the status of back rewards.

Our hopes & prayers go out to the total of 5 people who bought this and can't play now..... Gossip
Part of the problems (I RTFA) was they planned for 30k players and got 75k and it blew up their database so bad it corrupted.
Being as that's simultaneous logins, probably the actual sales are higher

Because databases just corrupt themselves when attempting to write excess data?
