    I've recently purchased and installed the game via Steam. When I attempt to play the game it launches a black screen before hanging (spinning ball of death).

    I'm on MacOS Mojave (10.14)
    MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, early 2015)
    2.7 GHz Intel Core i5
    8 GB 1867 MHz DDR3
    Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB

    Update
    After googling the error from syslog, I updated my OS version and it's fixed the issue. Seems it's an OS bug.
