This error usually indicates that somehow the game's files have been corrupted. Often this is the work of an over-active virus scanner, but could just be bad luck on the downloading of the game. From the Troubleshooting Help thread ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/247240/discussions/0/613940109932737285/ ):

Won't install / file not found / virus detected / trojan reported

Unfortunately some virus scanners will trigger a "false positive" generic trojan in Steam games. Sometimes the scanner won't even tell you it did this, so it may not be obvious at first that the virus scanner is what deleted the game files.

Rest assured the game does not have any viruses - we scan the game with over 50 virus scanners before it is uploaded to Steam, who then themselves also scan it. Here is a report on version 1.34b from VirusTotal showing it clean for all scanners used:


It is recommended that you set your virus scanner to ignore anything in the SteamApps folder, as all games have already been been scanned by Steam before you download them. For more details, see this article:

You may want to just try re-downloading or at least verifying your download. If you right-click on the game and go to Properties, then the Local Files tab, there's a button there to verify the file integrity.

The other possibility besides file corruption is the sound system itself refused to load the sound file for some reason. In that case, changing the sound system may fix the problem. If you check the Troubleshooting Help thread mentioned above there are command-line arguments you can use to change what sound system the game uses or disable the sound entirely, so you can verify if that's the problem. If you are on Windows, you can also try switching to the SDL version of the game which will not use the DirectX sound system. That same thread explains how to switch to the SDL version under "Troubleshooting tips" at the bottom. Of course, if any of these work, it may mean an issue with your sound drivers and you may need to look into updating them.
