Linux beta ready for testing - read this first
The fine folks at Abstraction have finally got Gunpoint working well enough on OSX and Linux that we're ready for you guys to give it a try and see what breaks.

If you already own Gunpoint, right-click it in your Steam list and go to Properties. Under the 'Betas' tab, choose 'maclinuxbeta' and 'OK'. The game should update.

If you find any problems, see if there's a thread about them here, and if not, start a new one! Tell us as much as you can about your system, what you were doing, and what happened.

Caution! The Mac and Linux versions are in beta, so I don't recommend buying the game yet if that's what you'll be playing on!

To make sure everyone has the latest fixes, the beta is Steam-only. When they're ready, the Mac and Linux versions will of course be available DRM-free for people who bought here or on the Humble Store. And buying it from anywhere at any time on any of these three platforms means you own it on all three.

Thanks for the warning, I'll probably pick a copy up once it's stable.

Just played it and so far it's working great. Resolution works correctly on multiple monitors which is a big plus! Haven't run into any problems yet.

No issues so far. Fun game, thanks a lot!

Before even joining the beta in Steam, I noticed the "Install" button started working on Mac for Gunpoint. It appeared to successfully download, but showed 0 bytes downloaded and shows a missing executable error if you try to start the game. Did you accidentally enable Gunpoint for Mac on Steam for non-beta too?

I then went to the forum and realized there's actually a Mac/Linux beta running now. I actually joined the beta and it seems to download and run fine.

EDIT: Sorry, I searched Google to discover the beta. Didn't realize I ended up in the Linux sub forum, and not Mac.
