Limbo only displays black screen
Sorry for the language but... I have recently upgraded my computer and I can play practically any game. Sonic Generations at full specs, Saints Row 4, etc. etc.

But this game. This ♥♥♥♥ing game. This ♥♥♥♥ is the only game in my entire library that refuses to start. Let me explain. EVERYTHING ELSE STARTS EXCEPT THE VIDEO.
Sounds will play, I can even access the menu (but I can't see it). I've tried messing with all the settings. Changing the video properties, putting it in Windowed mode, leaving it in fullscreen mode. No matter what I ♥♥♥♥ing do this game still refuses to actually display any imagery for me to enjoy. I've heard a bunch of fantastic things about this game and I've always wanted to play it. I've already tried verifying the game cache, I've already redownloaded DirectX, I've already reset my computer, I've already deleted and reinstalled LIMBO, but this ♥♥♥♥er still refuses to start. If anyone has got some advice on how to get around this, someone PLEASE tell me. This seems to be a huge problem with the Steam version of LIMBO I've noticed.

There's absolutely no way I could be the only person on steam to have this problem.

No I haven't been able to solve this problem. I even redownloaded my video drives just to MAKE SURE I had all the up to date details but nope. Nothing. And no one on here seems to even have any solutions either.

The non-DRM runs OK directly frum Ubuntu 12.04, but I tried the Steam version and just got your black screen of death, not even sound! I had to ctl-alt-del and reboot to escape.

I wish reverifying the cache worked for me but it didn't. It might be an issue with DirectX I don't know? But I've tried redownloading it and everything and nothing worked so I don't know what's up.
