Bastion on Linux
So I download Bastion, things go great, then it freezes. I know I have the specs for it and it seems like an install error. Has anyone else had this problem on Linux with this game or am I the only one?

I don't have that problem, but the game won't even display with the open source drivers that are the default on my Mint 16 installation. I have to switch to the AMD fglrx proprietary drivers to get the game to work.

I was running Linux Mint XFCE with AMD drivers. I've got to say I was a bit disappointed with the performance of this and a few other games in Linux. Don't get me wrong, I like Linux and still have it on a netbook. I re-installed Windows 7 on my laptop. It's just so much better for playing games than it was running Linux Mint.

I have a problem where the game input is very delayed. I thought the resolution might be too high but the options to change this are locked.

I have the same problem, the -nofixedstep parameter doesnt seem to fix it. Tryed to find an answer... If anyone knows how to fix this I'd love to know cuz I want to continue playing this game :(

Running Ubuntu 13.10 using proprietary fglrx drivers, and my system seems to be greater than the minimum specs.

The minimum specs may be referring to a Windows machine. Using the same machine with Linux Mint and Windows 7, the Windows version runs silky smooth while the Linux version just chuggs along, at least in my experience.

I can't compare Bastion on Linux with the Windows version, but here it runs great:
openSUSE 12.3 64bit, AMD Penom II X4 955BE, Nvidia GTX 260 (propietrary drivers: 331.38)

Thx Devs for the Linux port. Great game.

I've started having exactly the same problem. The game worked smoothly some months ago and now I wanted to play it again but it freezes my computer completely and I have to do a hard reset to continue using it.

The only thing that has changed since then is the fglrx version. Could it be that the origin of the problem?
