I am on 64 bit. A black screen with a fancy mouse pointer is briefly shown before the crash.

Hello Spirittt,

Please contact our customer support directly and provide necessary details such as your system report: https://support.gog.com

That way we will be able to investigate further what is at fault here and come up with a solution that will work for you.
Well...

"A system report is required to submit this support request.
The detailed instructions on how to generate the report will be displayed under this message, once you select your operating system in the form above."

while the drop-down has only Ubuntus in it. I use Archlinux.

GOG.com officially supports only Ubuntu and its derivatives and flavors, such as Linux Mint, Xubuntu etc. If you're using Arch Linux we can still attempt to help you but we cannot guarantee that the game will work on your system.

Please pick the latest version of Ubuntu from the dropdown list and explain in your ticket message that you're using Arch Linux.
Huh, just reinstalled to reproduce the bug but it works now (same gog_hard_west_2.7.0.8.sh as far as I can tell).
Hello,

Also using arch linux and installing from the same gog_hard_west_2.7.0.8.sh , I experience the exact same crash at start after a brief display of a black screen with a redecorated mouse pointer.

reinstalling several times did not help.
I found the solution on steam forums here: steamcommunity.com/app/307670/discussions/0/487876568241125919/

hard west has a hard requirement on the much dreaded and despised pulseaudio. having only pulseuadio stub to fool that kind of badly coded software is not enough, you have actually install pulseaudio and its accompanying software:

pacman -S pavucontrol pulseaudio libpulse lib32-libpulse libcanberra-pulse

it's a shame to have to add this piece of unwelcomed and unwanted software to be able to play hard west.
hopefully finishing the game does not take too much time and removing pulseaudio afterwards will not leave a mess with my handcrafted audio setup
