Marking my script executable fixed the issue, thanks! I knew it had to be 
something simple. It would be nice if the launcher could provide some 
useful output, as you state in that bug.

In reading over the documentation again, the initial tutorial [1] does 
show setting the binary as executable, but the "Snapcraft: Advanced 
features" page [2] says this in reference to the binaries section of the 
snapcraft.yaml, "The above will take care of making the script executable, 
adding it to the user's path and install it in the right place." This 
wording should be changed if Snapcraft is not actually marking the binary 
as executable. Alternatively, it would be nice if Snapcraft did this 
automatically as stated, or maybe displayed a warning about non-executable
