This game will not run. I hit play and it quits.  The same thing happens with All that Remains.  I have a MacBook Air 12.5.  Why is this happening? 

Sorry about this! Do you get any kind of error report?

None!  It just goes right back to the start up screen.  

if I get close to something I cannot go back, no matter what I try! Controls, please

You sould be able to hit the right-mouse button and go back, or possibly the backspace key as well.

Doesn´t work... backspace goes to the main menu and I use a tablet, not a mouse... Will try the buttons on the pen, let´s see if this works
I´ll get back to you if it doesn´t.


some features, like the camera, don't work properly. game crashed about 20 times. :/

Sorry about this! I didn't see the message until now. Can you try the latest version as a lot of fixes have gone in since.
