    Playing :timecube: on Steam on Linux (SteamOS actually). I went to do a time warp, and poof! My entire machine restarted.

    I'm quite shocked that this happened. Unity3d is a sandbox, steam is a sandbox.

    Any ideas how I should troubleshoot this?

    If you haven't restarted the game yet you can check the Output_Log.txt as it would have any errors there (you can email it to me at [email protected] and I can check it out if you want).

    The Output_Log file can be found by going into Steam, Library, right-click on Time Clickers, Properties, Local Files, Browse Local Files.

    Unfortunately I restarted immediately. It put me back at my starting wave, with my :timecube:s unspent. Lost out on a chance to sell, fortunately I wasn't planing to reallocate.

    If it happens again I'll check the output_log.txt but I'm not optimistic as the crash occurred instantly upon pressing "Yes" in time warp; I really doubt there was any time to write out a log file and the OS to flush the cache to disk.

    Right-click doesn't work on SteamOS. I know how to get to it from the Linux desktop though.

    Okay it happened again, exactly the same as before. I'm having a hard time finding the local files; what other files should be near the Output_Log? I found a folder with fontconfig/ TimeClickers_Data/, TimeClickers.x86 and TimeClicker.x86_64 but that doesn't seem to be it.

    My guess is that it might be running out of memory, but curious to see what the file says.

    Here's a thread with a couple of suggestions for how to find the Steam game folder on Steam OS:

    If that doesn't work you can also try finding them in the local Unity foloder:
    ~/.config/unity3d/CompanyName/ProductName/Player.log
