Downloaded both beta and default versions, but neither worked. Same version number, so go figure. 


I get the same thing on my M1 Pro macbook pro.


Same issue on my M1 Max on macOS Monterey. Removing the extended attributes using `xattr` causes it to launch and freeze on a black screen like the Steam version.


Same. Just bought the game and can't run on M1 Macbook Pro (16 inch, 2021). File info says it will run in "Intel" mode


I'm also having this issue on an Intel Macbook Pro 2018 on Monterry


latest builds are still broken. Can I get a refund?


Having the same issue here, none of the fixes I've found on google have worked. Can I get a refund?

Same issue. May I please get a refund for my purchase?
