The game started the first time I ran it, but it was sluggish, so I exited to try to change the settings. Then I was getting the Renderer #0 Failure error. Default settings didn't fix the error.
I uninstalled my (latest) Nvidia drivers, reinstalled them (I double-checked that they are the latest), and then the game ran fine. I played it a couple of sessions, and then when I started it again today, it was sluggish again at the menu screen, so I exited it, tried to start it again, and I got the Renderer #0 Failure error again.
I don't want to have to reinstall my drivers again, so I'm going to try to wait for a fix for this.

I've thought I've found fixes for this problem, but after a few restarts the error occurs again. I can't find a reproducible fix for this.
Hopefully this can be fixed soon.
The exact same thing happened to me. I really hope this gets fixed. Frictional is one of my favorite developers and its depressing to see a bug of this magnitude in one of their games. Especially when it keeps me from playing a game I paid for.
