Won't start in windows 8
When launching the game I get the error: failed to start game(unknown error)
I have installed the correct vc++ and even tried compatibility mode and it just wont start.
If anyone has a workaround short of dual booting I would appreciate it.

nevermind apparently the 64bit os still requires the 32bit vc++

im having the same problem too hope somone can help us soon
Maybe 'cause windows 8 sucks ♥♥♥.
Juss sayin.
Bought the game the moment it came out. Finally installed it this morning and it won't start for me either on Windows 7 64 bit. Steam thinks the game is running and the play timer is going up, but there is nothing. I don't even get the launcher.

Yes it sucks ♥♥♥ because its basically a lighter more secure version Windows7, runs 99% of software 7 can and has better FPS in most games....just sayin'
As for the the game, it runs fine on my rig with WIn8 Pro.....perhaps you should verify your game cache
i have the same problem. The game start, shows the "Oddworld Inhabitants" Screen and then it is Blackscreen and an Error comes :" Game Application doesn`t work". My PC is a Win8 Pc 64 bit. My PC is good enough to start it, specs are here:

i5 4670k 3,4-3,9 GHz
120 GB SSD Samsung 840 EVO
1TB Western Digital Harddrive
msi z87-g43 mainboard

time to stop using windows then
As much as you want linux to be the primary gaming platform, it simply will never happen. I'm not going to sacrfice performance just to be microsoft free and I'm sure others feel that way as well. So until that days comes when all cream of the crop titles run to their full potential please bug off with the ditch windows or use linux comments.

For the record the problem is that steam don't automatically install the correct libraries for this game and if I remember correctly you don't even get a missing dll error..
