Same problem here. Did that happen to you while playing a community chamber?

It happens pretty much whenever. It happened in a community chamber, single player, co-op etc. everywhere.

Same trouble here!

Mine's crashing as soon as my save finishes loading. I hear a snippet of sound and then back to desktop. I've played a few community chambers. I noticed right before I started playing that Steam had updated. Maybe a bug? Did anyone else's start this right after the update?

Mine was doing the same!! I have to keep verifying game cache and it does a 7mb update then works fine!!!

I tried this and now my game works. I can load saves and it doesnt crash after loading the next level.

You're not alone. I have an inkling it might have something to do with the new steam update and a patch might come within a day or two.

I have verified game cache and nothing changes, but I keep crashing without any error message. I'll wait a few more days before trying again.

Best wishes.

I have the same problem, which started about two days ago. Is this a common problem the last two days? If so, like stated earlier: Steam will probably release an update soon. I hope.

Has anyone tried reinstalling?

Me too.
Having exactly the same problem, and it still breaks with the beta update too.

For me, disabling the Steam overlay fixed the crashing.
