I just bought the game here on I extracted the game to a folder on my desktop. Every time I run the executable file a window with a red exclamation mark and a picture of a bird will appear for a short time, then immediately close. Is this problem known, and is there a solution to it? I am running on windows 10.


I'm sorry to hear this! I haven't encountered this problem before.

Can you try sending me the Unity log file?
Windows: C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\LocalLow\adamgryu\A Short Hike\Player.log
You can email it to hello[at] 

Also, just some general things to try - re-downloading the game / restarting your computer?

Sent an email. I did try restarting my pc and re-downloading the game. IT did not work.

Running the game as administrator fixed it for me!

Thanks for the log. It seems like it is some sort of hardware issue.

Three more things to try:
- If you're using a second monitor, try unplugging it and launching the game with only one.
- Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date.
- Try running the game with the command line arguement: "-force-glcore"

I'm not the OP, but I had the same problem. "-force-glcore" worked for me, thanks!

It's been a few weeks since I've had this issue and in the time I've discovered something. Every game that runs in the unity game engine is doing this on my pc. I have absolutely no clue how to fix it. I guess I just cannot play games in unity anymore.

The issue is fully resolved now. Unity has a problem in which if a vjoy device with only a few buttons is set up no game in unity can launch.
