I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.

When I try to play Bastion, I ran into a problem. The screen shows the Warner Bros logo, then Supergiant games, and then the music starts and the cursor appears, then nothing showed up. I moved the cursor around and it makes click-clack noises as it moves over what I'm guessing are tiles on the menu, so it seems the menu is there, just invisible.

A missing proprietary Graphics card driver may be missing.

Search for "jockey" in the Dash, then open Additional Drivers. Find your Graphics card driver (AMD/ATI or nVIDIA) and install it.

I don't have a graphic card...): – PopKernel Jun 23 '12 at 21:30
Every computers have a graphics card. Does yours say nVIDIA? – Emerson Hsieh Jun 23 '12 at 22:46
Mine is integrated. It is the intel core 2 duo processor. – PopKernel Jun 24 '12 at 0:49
Well I guess the only way is to reinstall Bastion on your computer. – Emerson Hsieh Jun 24 '12 at 2:27
When I read the answer below: Did you updated using sudo apt-get update? That only updates the LIST. Update it using Update-Manager. – Emerson Hsieh Jun 24 '12 at 3:45

I faced the same problem a while ago. But an update fixed it for me. Try updating your software via the Updates app.

Just to be sure, do you mean sudo apt-get update? – PopKernel Jun 24 '12 at 2:53
No, just a regular Software Center update in my case. But it is strictly equivalent to apt-get update. – Agmenor Jun 24 '12 at 16:08
Updating with Software Centre is equivalent to apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade. See man page. – idbrii Jun 24 '12 at 16:13
No luck. I got this too: W: Failed to fetch… 404 Not Found W: Failed to fetch… 404 Not Found W: Failed to fetch… 404 Not Found ...etc the list goes on.... – PopKernel Jun 24 '12 at 19:30
Ok, I just ran the graphical equivalent and got the message that the repos won't update. – PopKernel Jun 24 '12 at 19:36

I've found a way maybe:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
#put it in your bastion install folder
#mine is /usr/local/games/Bastion
#bastion ubuntu intel
export force_s3tc_enable=true
