I have windows 10 game won't launch

I just got the game on steam and it won't first time launch. Troubleshooting is extremely frustrating because of the way the game hides/locks up. The files that are running don't end up doing anything and then you can't just try another compatibility mode w/o restarting.

The game doesn't need compatibility mode. The game not starting at all (as opposed to starting then crashing) is a Steam problem.

Here some things you can try:
  • Turn off your antivirus. It seems it can interfere with Steam sometimes. If the game runs, try turning it back on.
  • Turn off Steam Cloud synchronization for The Quest: Right click on the name of the game in your Steam Library, select Properties, then the Updates tab. The checkbox is at the bottom.
  • Delete, then redownload the game: To delete it, right click on the game, then select Delete Local Content.

There might be other causes, but I'm not that knowledgable in Steam troubleshooting, sorry.
