Upon launching Syberia I it comes up with the error:

"the 3d rendering engine could not be initialized" and crashes. The store page says this works on Windows 10 (which I'm using, 64-bit, GTX 970, latest drivers). What the hell, GOG? I paid for this game to fucking work.

Hey, I had the same issue. I fixed it like this:

Go to where the game is installed (in my case, C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG Galaxy\Games\Syberia)
Right click over Syberia.exe. Properties > Compatibility > Check Reduce color mode 8-Bit. Click Apply
Do it also on Change settings for all user, just in case.
Click Ok

Now you should be able to run the game.

Thanks dude !
Use dgvoodoo2. Not compatibility needed nor 8 bit fix, using dgvoodoo2 the game runs at proper speed and 32 bit colour.

greetings
Yeahhhh it works for me :)

Worked. Thanks,
Hmm, unfortunately the fix didn't work for me. I switched to 8-Bit color mode, applied Windows XP Service Pack 2 compatibility, changed for all users and ran as administrator. No luck...

Game works great here, Win10x64, version 1709, build 17025, RX-480 8 GB, latest Crimson drivers (17.11.1)--no compatibility modes needed @ 2560x1440p. So there is hope for you..;) Have you tried rolling back your drivers? I don't use nVidia, but I have read many a game-forum complaint with nVidia drivers and relatively recent games wherein a rollback to earlier drivers seems to fix things.

Why would you blame GOG, though?...;) GOG isn't the game developer and has nothing to do with your GPU drivers, etc. Good luck! Game's a bargain @ $15.
