Today, Desura offered to update the game, so I did, but still, the game crashes mercilessly every time I try to start it. So far, no version and nothing I have done seem to work.

Just bought the game, installed it, and every time I try to launch it, it dies immediately and pops a window saying it has stopped working:

Problem Event Name: CLR20r3

Tried verifying with all the trimmings, but no joy.

it hasn't worked for me since the 1.02 version came out and I tried installing the stand alone version and that didn't work. Since then I haven't bothered with it.

Is the "stand alone version" different from what Desura installs? How do you get it?

Can't really give it more than a 1, as it won't even load on my machine. I know, it's 'bad form' to do that, but if I can't play it, I can't give it a proper rating.

I think it's abismal that it just doesn't seem to work, and I don't know what's going on.
