When I try to run Perspective on my Windows 11 Laptop it gives the following error on startup:

..\Source\Graphics\GraphicsContext.cpp(1819): Couldn't create texture from file

Cancel | Try Again | Continue

Clicking either Try Again or Continue results in a crash:

Woops! That shouldn't have happened...
A small crash report will be created.

This issue occurs regardless of whether I install through Steam or the Digipen website.

The game runs as expected when I try playing on my Steam Deck or desktop with a GeForce GTX 1070, which makes me believe the problem may be related to my laptop's integrated Intel graphics.
