Can't launch game

I have now bought Democracy 4 twice…once from epic games (refunded) and now, from Steam. Both times the game will not launch no matter what. 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 tried everything I can think of restarting my computer, verifying files, turned off my anti virus etc. The issue is only with Democracy 4 and it has happened both with the epic games launcher and Steam. Someone please help me :frowning:
