Now, coming back to the particular Palia Black Screen problem. The following problem is quite new and has just been recently encountered by users, most of whom have updated the game or drivers most recently.

After having done some digging and going through a few forums and threads here and there, we have come to the conclusion that the following problem mainly has arised due to a compatibility issue with changes made to the new update in the game, following which most people trying to play the game on a MacOS system, get prompted with the following black screen.

Hence, the best scenario or option right now would be to either wait it out till the next update is available with patches to fix the following bug. Or, head out to their official support page and submit a request for the following issue there. We have submitted a request regarding the following and you could do the same. Since, the more the merrier and stronger the message would be to the developers for them to consider working on the following problem sooner. 

But, apart from all that, one user has claimed to have found a walk around the following issue, if only you can get passed across the login phase of the game to be able to change the graphics settings within the game from DirectX 12 to Direct X 11.
