Can't start the game
When I get to the launcher and press play, the logo comes up, and then opens the program, but it is just an overlay of my desktop that I can't interact with.

What version of Windows are you running? Is there anything about your configuration that could complicate the game window initialization (multiple monitors, SLI)? Does the game show up on the task bar?

You could check the launcher configuration to see if there is another graphics device to select. Also, make sure there aren't any programs running that might steal focus (browser, music player, overclocking agent).

Windows 7, nothing out of the ordinary, yes it shows up on the task bar and takes *50,000 K ram on the task manager, there is no other graphics device to select, and here are my specs just incase you need them:

It also doesn't recognize that I have closed the window out and won't let me start it again without either doing it outside of steam, or restarting steam.

finally, it appears this was a problem back in alpha as well; from what this person describes, it would seem that we have the same problem

It's possible that one of the game's dependencies failed to install. You should have "Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0" and "Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable 4.0 Refresh" listed in your installed programs in control panel. If those are missing, you can find the installers in "Steam\steamapps\common\Retrovirus\Redistributables" to run them manually.

Unfortunately, currently the game will not perform very well on that machine. We are looking into ways to improve performance (simpler shaders, better occlusion culling) to reduce the min specs and improve the experience overall. We are even considering a major overhaul of the graphics engine, as the XNA Framework isn't being developed by Microsoft anymore.

installed them all (though I'm pretty sure I was already up to date) and there is no change; guess I'll have to wait for some kind've fix. Looking forward to being able to play, good luck.
