I just installed splice from the humble bundle, and I get a blank screen on startup. I can hear the audio, and if I move my mouse around, I can hear the menu items or something changing.

I have an amd radeon HD5800 series. I'm using the fglrx-updates driver on 12.10, fully updated.

Any ideas of things to try? Full screen or windowed, I get a blank window. Also, other GL games are running just fine.

Just wanted to follow up here -- I installed appropriate amd beta drivers and now it starts. These ones work, I cannot confirm that the latest ones do at the time of this writing (I had trouble with another game with the latest beta drivers). I know with the Steam beta out now, there are a lot of changes in drivers coming along.
