Unexplained Failure to Start Up

I have bought and have been trying to run Towns on steam recently, I have installed the most recent version of Java, I have checked to find error logs and found nothing.
When I attempt to run the towns either through the desktop shortcut (as administrator) or through the steam library it never works. I have checked the validity of my files through steam and they seem to be valid. All that happens is I hit play and after that it just completely fails to run, no error messages and no error logs. My other games on steam all work so it's only this particular game that fails to start up, I need halp.

I can't think of any of the solutions I haven't already tried before coming to this forum.

Have you checked your error.log(located in Steam/SteamApps/common/towns)?

"no error messages and no error logs."
"I have checked to find error logs and found nothing."

I know, I read that, just making sure you didn't overlook it.
Did you try installing java 6 (some people had issues with java 7)?

Just replaced my JRE 7 with 6, the problem still persists.

Is your java directory added to the "path" environment variable correctly?

I have both the PATH and CLASSPATH added to environment variables as I needed this in the past to operate minecraft mods.

Hmmm... Then I'm out of ideas.
Probably it's just something really simple that's being overlooked...
What OS version do you have?

Sorry for double post/bump.

Has anybody seen any other people in a similar situation, like the game failing to start followed by no error logs? I'd really like to try this since everybody seems to think it's such a great game.
