Doesn't work for me.

I can unlock the drop-down menu item and have it selected but I still get a message box:

"Don't Starve Together Beta is not available on your current platform."

Strange, what distro are you using? Works for me on Ubuntu 14.10.

I wish this had split-screen local co-op, I would buy it for sure then.

Valve need to understand that if Steam Machines are going to compete with consoles then they need to incentivise developers to have actual multiplayer. At the moment it's just the Portal 2 missions, Left 4 Dead 2 if you tinker with it a bit and some indie games that aren't exactly going to pull people away from their Call Of Duty and FIFA.

Doesn't seem to be working here either, I opted in to the beta but when I try to install it shows the same message:
"Don't Starve Together Beta is not available on your current platform."

Kubuntu 14.10 here

+1, Local co-op games are a must for me.
How did you manage to get local co-op in left4dead ? Why isn't it official ?

MayeulCHow did you manage to get local co-op in left4dead ? Why isn't it official ?

If you look round steam, there's a lot of guides on how to do it. It's mostly just pulling up the console in-game and typing in a few commands. There's a video one here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nlp1j9u3T1Y

No idea why it was never made official.

Doesn't work on Crunchbang Waldorf either.
Install says it's finished in less than one second and when trying to start the game I get "Failed to Start Game (Missing Executable)".

Works fine for me on Mint
