When clicking "Play" from Steam the "preparing to launch game" window appears for about half a second and then disappears and nothing else happens. No game, no stalled processes in system monitor, nothing. Just the preparing to launch box and a little blip of CPU activity. When I run the game directly from the Broken Age folder in the steam apps folder using "sh run.sh" from the terminal, the game launchs and runs flawlessly with no problems that I can see.
