All drivers are completely up to date and other games run fine.
EDIT: Also cleared out game cache in Steam client and even uninstalled and completely re-downloaded and installed again.
EDIT 2: On the offchance that 6 month old motherboard firmware could be at fault I've also re-flashed with the latest and again no luck. I have also installed the 32bit and 64bit versions of 2005, 2008 and 2010 visual c++ redistributables and .net framework 4 on the offchance that it's a missing library.
I get as far as copying the game 'key', launching the game menu, clicking 'Play' and then nothing visible happens. In the background however there's a From_Dust.exe running at a working set of 160K and private bytes of 948K.
Pretty impressed with my first ever Steam purchase.
