I get the 'invalid app config' error with Psychonauts, Limbo and Braid too. Perhaps these games aren't supported in the beta yet?

Same here. They are listed as supported though.

Braid, Limbo, and Psychonauts are not included in the limited beta. Have either of you purchased these games earlier?
If you have, then Steam is displaying those as available and downloading an incorrect version.

Yes, I purchased all 3 games earlier. Did not know that they cannot be played yet.

I did a little digging into this and there seems to be a disconnect between the Steam data base and the Steam client when it requests Braid, Limbo, or Psychonauts. We'll get in touch with Steam Tech and figure out what is going on and how to handle this in the future.
Thanks for reporting this!

Great to hear, I thought it was something wrong only with me!

Hey...I'm just wondering if there is any update on this issue

Same here. I've just joined this awesome beta and I definitely can see Limbo in the “Linux Games” list in my library.

Same here :(
I purchased Limbo in windows.

Can I add VVVVVV to the list of games that does this? At least for me it does...

I'm having the same problem with Spacechem.

The Linux versions of all the games from Humble Bundle 5 all had to be patched before they would run. Braid, Limbo, Psychonauts, and are all giving me the invalid app config error. All 3 had Linux versions in the Bundle. Although Limbo was actually the windows version with an embedded wine build that didn't support sound servers.

I have the same problem with Braid, Limbo, Psychonauts and FTL. Amnesia and Superbrothers S&S download fine.
Phobetor Dec 9, 2012 @ 4:11am 
Same here. I see LIMBO and VVVVVV in the "Linux Games" list.

I got them too. The problem is that steam reports them as downloaded but the game directory is empty. Uninstall them and reinstall, youll experience an instant downdoad (actually nothing is downloaded).
This is true for:
