The game requires a dedicated GPU, follow this link if you have one but still experience this issue.

Is it possible that the tutorial wants you to select something, or do another action before you can actually start digging. Occasionally the game will ask you to complete a task, and lock other parts of the UI until you do so, that may be the case here.

If not can you post your output log and other important information using the guide here, (https://forum.subterraneangames.com/threads/please-read-how-to-report-a-bug.4689/)

Assuming complete due to lack of customer response.

I have recently bought this game and I have experienced the exact same problem. I have the latest patches and I have tried -force-d3d9 and -force-d3d11 separately but it still doesn't work. Please help

Reopening as per new user comments.

Hi Guys,

Please can you confirm you've tried the following: Unable to click game objects / tag tiles.

Can you also include full system specs and an output log from when this is occuring as per How to: Submit a Bug Ticket

Hugo had the same issue a while ago when he plugged his monitor directly to the onboard Intel GPU output.
Seems that our UI middleware CoherentUI is not compatible with these onboard Intel cards and so it fails to check transparency click-through, which means that the entire UI catches all clicks and none arrive in the scene.
Thus make sure the game runs on your dedicated GPU and not on your onboard Intel one.
How to do this is described here:
