Dead Island Riptide has stopped working
Verified all files, reinstalled twice now and every time I run the game it comes up with a black screen then a pop-up reading as said in the title. I know it's not my pc as I am running a high-spec, fairly new rig. Haven't played the game yet and would love to soon. Anyone having the same issue?

I am having the exact same problem, I have verified twice, done the delete appcache and restart trick, even deleted and reinstalled. I am having the exact same problem. Want to know a fix.

Try this:

In steam, right click Dead Island riptide, go to properties, then launch options, set the launch option "-nologos" (without the quotes) and launch the game.

It may have to do with how you have the games video configured. If you go to "Documents/Riptide" and delete the folder labeled "Out", this will force the game to remake it next time you run it with default configuration. I had to make sure VSynch was off and the game was set to run in Windowed mode. If I changed either of these things, my game would crash as soon as I wasn't watching an in game movie. Once delete that, you can then test to see what works for you and what does not.
