Not working on SteamOS
I know...I know, it is already reported but I just thought that using SteamOS in the title might shake the devs a bit...maybe.

So, the game is installing fine and starting in windowed mode but as soon as I touch the settings option, is crashing.
If I leave the settings alone I can start the game, wander around for a bit, but shortly is crashing again.

The same thing happens in Ubuntu 13.10 amd64
Video card is R9 280X with Catalyst 14.2 beta driver
This is the output_log.txt file: http://pastebin.com/xyFtZUFB

Both of you have Radeon card. Me too. And the game doesn't work for me either.

My Development Machine also has a Radeon card, and the game works like a charm. Granted, on Windows, but there is as many reports of working linux players as of people it seemingly doesn't work. Maybe try a non-beta-Driver for starters. I don't currently have a dedicated testing machine for Linux, but I will try to get a hold of one soon, but it runs fine in my ubuntu virtual machine, and I have other reports also having little to no trouble playing in Linux.

I am aware of reports stating that clicking the settings screen crashes the game on some Linux systems, but there is nothing written to the output_log giving me *any* chance to see what happened, the termination is externally induced without even reporting back to the game. Consequently I'd need somebody with sufficient experience in Linux to tell me where to look for the cause for this, because honestly I'd expect an operating system to at least report back to the crashing process and not simply terminating it.

It does indeed work on Linux (well, sort of) with Nvidia cards.

With AMD OTOH is another story. Using latest Mesa drivers the game starts and you can access the settings but the game looks bad, really bad, lots of flickering and corrupted textures while the performance is very low.
As for the proprietary AMD driver issue other than the gdb output I don't know what else to provide.
Probably (as in many other cases) the crappy AMD driver is to blame and there is nothing you can do about it.

However, at least you can try to improve the performance with Nvidia cards.
The game works, I got no crashes yet and it looks very good, but there is a lot of stuttering in my movements. The game seems to be working smooth around me (other characters movements are fluid) but as soon as I start to move or look around everything goes downhill.
The game is simply unplayable and even at the lowest settings possible moving around the town for a while gives you a headache.

Oh yes, and as a irony, running the game through WINE it works a lot better.

If you are refering to my log being incomplete, it is because the Ubuntu's ptrace protection. After disabling that, i get pretty much the same log as dubigrasu's.
As for the drivers, it crashes the same way with both latest stable and beta drivers. Using the open source amd drivers, the game does not carsh, but have poor performance, like on dubigrasu's nvidia card. So yes, it's probably something with amd's proprietary drivers.

A couple of things that might help pinpoint where the problem is comming from:
Clicking the settings after you start a new game works(except sound settings, which causes a crash).
When you level up, the game crashes when you select an attribute to increase.

Let me know if you want the logs for these two crashes as well, or you need anything else checked.

Game seems to work fine on Ubuntu 13.10 64bit.

The only issue I've noticed, besides slight lag in the graphics, is that there is no sound. I've tried quite a few things and haven't managed to get sound to work at all. Checked to make sure it wasn't my headphones or another part of my hardware, sound works fine for everything except this game.
Looks cool, will probably just turn on some tunes and play it without, lol. Would definitely like it more if there was sound though.

Linux does give some error messages that are by default hidden from the user. Not sure if this will work here, as I do not know what is happening, but you could ask those who have to problem to run the game from within a terminal, then if the games crashes, any/all error messages will be visible there.
