Are you on Mac or PC? After clicking Play have you just waited like 10-15min in case it's installing in the background?

Initial steps to try:

1. Uninstall the game, reinstall and retry
2. Restart your machine and try launching it again.
3. Reinstall Steam.

After some thorough investigating, the problem was that the install location was within a folder which had an "!" in the name - this will prevent Puzzle Pirates from launching.

If you have Steam install games to a location other than the default C:\ location - make sure the destination location has no folders in the path which contain "!"

Unrelated, if you ever see this when running/installing/updating Puzzle Pirates...

It is installing, it's just not showing the usual progress window (the file for the graphic may not exist, or another error means it can't be shown).

Depending on your connection, allow at least 15min for this to complete.

Thank you for figuring this out and posting the solution!
