Are you playing on macs? I am having the same issue and don't know what to do. Hopefully support can offer some advice

I bought all three in the bundle on a Mac and none of them will open. The icon will start jumping in the dock showing it's loading, the screen goes black, and goes back to the desktop. What's interesting is I can't quit Steam because Penumbra is "still running" but I can't see it in my dock. So the only way for me to quit Steam is to restart my Mac.
Same here, on mac. Anyone know any fixes?

Playing on windows 7 same thing I can't even enter the game. It just crashes before I can even start playing.

Guys after looking through a ton of threads I have found a solution that got it to work for me on Win 7 64bit.

Go to the files (default will be c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\Penumbra Overture)

You will see a file called oalinst. Open and install it and then run the game.

This worked for me :) Hope it works for you.

Really?? So I download it again on a pc and then go to the mac and it will work...? I think I'm missing something here lol!
Do you mean like save it from the pc onto a usb and put onto the mac?

Pardon my confusion!!
