Right, picked the game up today and tried to take it out for a spin; crashing on the initial loading section (the chuckling fish thing?) without an error message. I've run through the options suggested in the OP (deleting the directory and performing a fresh install, checking Visual C++ 2015 and repairing it/updating it, ensuring my graphics drivers are up-to-date). I've tried everything that's been put forwards to no avail, and it's left me contemplating making a refund request. Is there anyway I can force/locate an error log in the files? I would like to at least play the game a bit.
