Would you also be making a patch for Amnesia?
Maybe it's because I only have the Demo through Steam? or is it the same difference thing? ha ha Anyways Thank You Very Much either way. They are both great games I just wish i knew more about rewriting codes so I can play them.

Can some of you try an alternative way of solving the game launching issue... do this instead.

cd /Users/<YOUR_USER_ACCOUNT_NAME>/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Penumbra\ Overture/
./Penumbra.app/Contents/MacOS/Penumbra

And yes, I'm working on doing updates for all of Frictional's games on mac and linux.

Alright.. I pushed a fix for Overture up to steam.. no binary changes just launch changes.. I simply changed it so the working dir won't get set incorrectly on startup. And it works fine for me on mavericks now.

Steam has all it's games automatically updated. If Edward pushed the update then when you download the game it should be fixed & up to date.

yup.. so you should now be able to play all Penumbra games on 10.9. From my testing of Amnesia: TDD it ran perfectly on 10.9 already for me. If it doesn't please start up a new thread for that game documenting issues.. (although it won't matter for long as I'm in the middle of doing a massive update for TDD incorporating the AMFPigs awesomeness into it).

You mean the one Patrick was working on for Windows some time back, right?
