Not working on Windows 8?
I downloaded and installed this on my Win7 pc first and then played it with no problems. After that I installed Win8 over my Win7 (not a good idea, yeah...) and now I downloaded Lucius again and tried to open it. Gives me an error "Can't load Main Shader" Any help would be really appreciated!

Whoa I verified the files with Steam and it told me 400 files need to be re-downloaded and it downloaded those files and the game started. Only thing is now there is no sounds :/

I got it working with Windows 8. This is what I did.
1) Make sure Windows 8 is up to date.
2) Make sure your Video/Sound drivers etc. is up to date.
3) Update DirectX
4) Run Steam as Administrator
5) Set Lucius.exe file to run as Administrator in the steam apps folder.
Bingo!

@H13Nv

If it doesn't work, try launch Lucius.exe instead, and post the error output.

my shortcut dosent have the lucius logo but my works well, i have to play on low graphics though as it lags a bit on any other setting. i guess its just your pc/laptop because i have windows 8 and it works.

I got it working. Just had to update to Windows 8.1. The most satanic game ever. LOL
