TEMPORARY FIX POSTED BY DEVELOPER
We are working to patch this issue. Until the patch goes live, you can prevent the crash by deleting "Cadenza.Paragon.ContentPipeline.dll" from the game folder. Just got home today and noticed Retrovirus updated with a bunch of optimisations, I was already 5 hours in and the poor performance was dragging the whole experience down for me, so I thought this would be great..
Now the game just won't run, I click play from the launcher, the logo comes up and then nothing.
Tried completely reinstalling the game, the redists, disabling all 3rd party programs that could potentially interfere. Nothing.
Specs: i7 860 / GTX670 331.40 driver / 8GB RAM / Windows 8 64bit
This is the crash log that generates;
System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException: Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information.

at Cadenza.Paragon.Engine.RunEngine(IProgram program, String args, SettingsFile userSettings, Thread applicationThread)
at Cadenza.Paragon.Engine.RunLoop(String name, Action action)
If there is any other info that will help solve this issue just let me know, I'd love to get back into this.
