Chrome Browser Indie Game Interrupted Download - Don't Starve

It's actually quite a silly game.  I do recommend taking a look.  So far it runs on Windows and via the Chrome web browser.

and via the Chrome Web Store

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta … e-ntp-icon

So far I've tried running this game via the chromium and google-chrome web browsers.  Both seem to exhibit the same behavior my only x86_64 system.  My OLD i686 system running with a nvidia 135m graphics card runs this half decently with no errors via the google-chrome browser.

Here's page that describes some issues which don't really appear to include Linux users.

Perhaps I'm missing something on my x86_64 system that my i686 system has?  Maybe I have a conflicting extension?  Is anyone else able to launch it (it will likely ask you for a key, but if you can launch it that's making it further than me).

EDIT:
after trying to download a few other apps via the chrome web store it seems that this x86_64 always get a download interrupted error.  trying to figure out why now...

Works fine for me.  64 bit, installed through chrome.  Perhaps some information about your video card and drivers, are you on ati? Nvidia? intel?
Read http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/an … er=1220892

Here are problematic situations on Linux as quoted on the site.

Linux
AMD/ATI cards
Nvidia QuadroFX 1500
Nvidia cards with Nouveau drivers
Nvidia cards with Nvidia drivers older than 295
Optimus dual-GPU configurations
Intel Mesa drivers earlier than 7.9

So if you are on AMD/ATI, then you are plain out of luck.  If you have Nvidia, make sure the nvidia drivers are new and not using the opensource Nouveau drivers.

No problem.  The game turned dark.  I didn't chop a tree in time so only had a torch.  Fought some bees and I died.  lol.
