This game crashes constantly
Seriously, I've been playing it for about 3 hours now and it's crashed on me no less than six times. Each time I've had to go into the task manager and manually shut off the process since it's not crashing all the way; by which I mean that the screen flickers, the program closes, but steam still registers that it's running because the process is still going in the background.

On top of that the steam achievements that keep popping up, friends activty notices, and the steam social overlay you can bring up all leave artifacts behind on the screen that persist.

It's a good game, but damnit I'm starting to get annoyed at having it randomly break on me.

About the Steam overlay, the game clearly wasn't made for that, and since it's not all new, probably hasn't been patched too much. It sucks, but at least the overlay can be switched off.

About the crashes, they too may actually be caused by the overlay. Try to see if the flickering persists after switching it off.

Hope that helps even if it doesn't actually fix it.

I know their is glitch/bug which occurs when moving between the foyer and floor where the witch doctor is. Puzzled by the glitch but rest of the transitions run smoothly for me. (atleast this happens on the big fish version)

I'm experiencing the exact same problem with the screen flickering at random moments throughout the game. It's very frustrating, but otherwise a good game.

same problem here :( and achievements doesn´t count
I can't even get it to start. I click play and it either goes back to the same screen or I get a colored screen with a couple star trails on it. I'm getting tired of paying for games that don't work.

Same flickering crash here on win 7. I have had better luck when running the game in windowed mode, the steam overlay popups don't linger and the post crash process is much easier to end in task manager than when running full screen.

I'm so sorry you are having trouble with Drawn. We have a great Customer Support team who will work through any of these issues with you directly.

[The Other Guy] is correct, this is an older title that was developed before the Steam overlay. We don't currently have the resources available to re-engineer the game specifically for Steam.

If you would like to reach out to our CS Team, please follow this link:


and let them know that your purchase was from Steam.
