Hi, I just purchased Democracy 4 on Steam and cannot get the game to launch
When I hit the green play button, it turns blue for a few seconds as if the game is starting but no windows are launched, I can’t see any activity in my take manager either, and then the button goes back to green.
I’ve verified files, reinstalled, and tried installing on both my SSD (E drive) and HDD (C drive).
Have looked at threads and tried common fixes like disabling antivirus - switched off windows defender but no luck and not super keen to have no antivirus running anyway
I do sometimes have issues launching games because my display is set to 1600 x 900, could that be an issue?
