Hey guys. :) Just thought I would add that Steam Play does not mean Linux support! Also, Botanicula is currently not available on Steam for Linux.

This post from Valve explains what Steam Play is:

Hmm...  I'd quote the post verbatim here, but a couple of sentences are slightly confusing, IMO, so I'll reword it slightly and attempt to clarify things just a little:

Steam Play allows you to purchase your games once and play anywhere. Whether you have purchased your Steam Play-enabled game on your Mac, Windows PC, or Linux PC, you will be able to play it on another platform free of charge if the game has been released on the platform that you are attempting to play on. (You'll need to look for the little Apple, Windows, or SteamOS logo in order to see what platforms a game has been released on.)

Edit: If it's still a little confusing, here is an article I found that goes into a bit more detail and has some images:

Glad to help out any way I can.

By the way, another plus of buying via the Humble Widget is that you get the full soundtrack that DVA created for the game.  (you just click on the icon)

That makes sense (that it benefits them more), yes. I was just browsing Steam one day and saw it so I grabbed it.

I'll probably just go for it again and maybe another.

At least I have an answer now though.

Thanks for the super quick replies!

Sorry Erik765, obviously Botanicula is not a cross-buy from Steam to the Humble Widget sales portal.

You can write to Amanita Design to complain if you wish to, here.
Or think of the additional $10 you'd spend as your contribution to the developers.  (they have said more than once that buying directly from them benefits them more than if one uses other means to purchase their games)

I only bought it via steam, so I'm hoping I don't have to buy it again (elsewhere) Sad That wouldn't make much sense.

If I were to have never purchased it, for example, I could still buy it via steam and have it playable on my Linux system it seems Sad

It shows up plain as day for me-

I don't see "Linux" on Botanicula's Steam page:  http://store.steampowered.com/app/207690/

Where exactly does "it" say Botanicula is available in Steam for SteamPlay/Linux?

Oh I think I see now… "it" is here.
If that's how you bought the game then just click on the Penguin icon to download the Linux install.

Hi everyone,

I purchased Botanicula a while back and have enjoyed playing it on my Mac. I would love to also install and play it on my Linux (Mint) system, and it says it's available in Steam for SteamPlay/Linux, but it won't let me install it (no option to even do so), and when I attempt to click on Play from the product page, I see "Botanicula is not available on your current platform".

Am I missing something, or will I not be able to do this?

Thanks in advance.

Moderator comment: I posted this below but thought it might be helpful to edit this first post to say that Steam Play does not mean Linux support! Also, Botanicula is currently not available on Steam for Linux. ~Lamkin

Hi SmartK9s, I'm not on Amanita Design support staff but I'll try my best to assist you.

Game freezes and locks up completely at any point past the first world where I use the horn to unlock information. Have to use task manager to exit.

That screen shot is not just "at any point"; that's well into the game!  So these freezes you're vexed with obviously don't happen EVERY time use the horn or you never would have gotten to that level.    Just realized that was your wallpaper and NOT the level you reached in the game.   ~doah~   Roll Eyes

Personally I'm not running Windows 10 but from what I'm reading online if you've recently installed the so-called "Anniversary Update" on your laptop that could be what's causing the problem.  There's more info at the link I've provided.

Meantime, the other suggestion I have is to try starting Windows 10 in safe mode, stat playing Samorost3, and see if that stops the freezes.

Good luck and please post a follow up when you figure out the fix.

This topic has been moved to the Samorost3 on Windows board.
