[Solved] Issue Report: Cannot install LIMBO
When I click "install" for LIMBO, the install box pops up, and the files preload, but then after it says "Steam will now install LIMBO" the installation finishes instantly and attempting to run LIMBO causes the error "Failed to start game: Invalid app config."

I am running Ubuntu 12.10 and have only just received the beta.
Not expecting anyone besides the Steam devs to be able to fix this; this is simply a bug report.

Only these games are supported right now:
https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8495-OKZC-0159

Any other games, like LIMBO, may indicate that a Linux version exists, but there's no appropriate files to download yet. That's why it fails; it doesn't download anything. This also happens on Psychonauts, VVVVVV, basically any game not in the above list.

Though it would be nice if Steam would actually indicate there's no files to download at the moment...

Ah, I did check that list and didn't see LIMBO on there. I just assumed the list was outdated slightly. Thanks for the help.

The Limbo Linux version is a trick. Actualy is a wine-embeded aplication. There's no Limbo Linux version for real... :\

Yeah, but no matter the method of porting, it's an official Linux version for the game, so that version should be available as a Linux Steam download at some point or another.
