The steam version isn't mac/linux compatible yet, you need to download the version from the humble bundle site.

Do you know when the steam version will be mac compatible?

No idea, but i'd probably assume before the end of the month. It depends on how long it takes for him to get the mac version released to steam and then the approvel process.

Steam doesn't let you install PC-only games on a Mac. Prior to today the game was listed as PC-only on Steam (and wasn't installable), so it's not clear why the change was made now to let Mac users install it. Seems like a bug at the very least.

I've had confirmation from Humble Bundle that Antichamber will eventually be available on Steam.
This morning, it appeared in my Mac games as a download, but no content downloaded - so when I pressed 'play' a "Failed to Start Game (Missing Executable)" error appeared.
By "deleting local content" and restarting my Mac, Antichamber's Mac installation availability was taken away.
I'm confident the game will appear in a few days or weeks.
In the meantime, it's unfortunate that we *can* play the game sans Steam achievements but it's only a matter of time.

There are no acheivements for Antichamber, just the cards, but those are easy to get if you just leave it running for an hour or so.

i downloaded the game by the site of humble bundle, so i agree with dithre, it seems a bug, I hope you will solve as soon as possible

Not to mention the Humble Bundle version appears to be Steam-ready.

The Humble Bundle version is not Steam-ready - I purchased it a couple of days ago, and Antichamber still isn't ready to install on Steam. I asked Humble Bundle support for when it will be ready, and they said the following statement: 'So, the good news is: Antichamber is scheduled to be released on Mac sometime this year. The bad news….I don’t know exactly when that will be. Hopefully very soon! I understand how frustrating this is.'

It is Steam ready, to an extent. It cannot be downloaded from Steam, but the .app bundle which is downloaded from the Humble Bundle site is Steam ready. It won't support the Steam overlay unless you add it as a non-Steam game, but it already notifies Steam that you are playing Antichamber, allowing you to collect those silly trading cards.
