New Crash/Bug Reporting System and Forum
Hello everyone! As we just launched yesterday, we've inevitably come across a few bugs and crashes with our Steam release. In order to help everyone more efficiently, we've updating the game with a crash report dialog. If your game crashes, you'll now be able to copy and paste the exception information directly to us. EPIC should automatically update within a couple of hours.

In addition, we now have a new subforum dedicated to bug/crash reports. If you have any issues with EPIC crashing in the future, please post to this subforum.

Thanks for your patience, everyone! Generally the response to EPIC seems positive, but we know some of you are having issues. This is our first Steam game, and we're trying our best!

Visit the new Crash/Bug report forum here:

Could you check to see if you have Windows Media Player installed? Our game uses XNA libraries, and XNA may use some WMP DLLs for music playback. In the mean time, we're developing a quick workaround.

Regarding your issue, we believe it's a problem with our Steam SDK, rather than with our game. We'll make an update with a workaround for now, but you may have issues getting achievements. We'll be reporting this to Community Express and see if we can get this fixed for you. :)
Rusyabrr Dec 4, 2013 @ 9:22am 
Well I've installed WM player and game works now) Thanks

Our game needs the WMP libraries for music playback. We'll be pushing an update later today that will allow you to play the game, but without WMP installed you won't be able to hear music.

Can you try to run the game as an administrator? If this doesn't help, we'll have to try to recreate and isolate the issue in the office on Monday. When did the crash happen? What were you doing? What did you see? Sorry for the issue!

I ran it as admin from the game folder, it didn't help.
I have tried launching it 2 to 3 times the last 2 days, it always crashed. No logo or splash screen. After steam's message "running the game", it crashed immediately and then I saw the error report that I posted above.
Steam, Origin client, Symantec Endpoint Protection and Opera web browser were running too.

I wonder if it's an issue with Symantec flagging a false positive. We had someone else who had an issue with a different antivirus software. The fact that you're getting a native error message indicates that our game hasn't even gotten to the point of running, as any exception thrown at runtime gives a custom error message with specific information about the problem. Could you try temporarily disabling Symantec and see if that does anything?
