It seems there's an annoying bug in Unity right now, that a bunch of developers are hitting. It seems Faeria [Steam] has the same bug that hit White Noise 2 and Ballistic Overkill recently. Here's a quick fix.

If you want it to run, simply add this line to your Steam launch options (right click the game -> properties -> set launch options), adjusting the resolution to whatever you want:
-screen-fullscreen 0 -screen-width 1920 -screen-height 1080
Once in-game, you can then set it to fullscreen in the options, removing this will will break it again though. Until they fix it, this has to be kept in your Steam launch options.

The White Noise 2 developers managed to fix it with an experimental fix from the Unity team, which works fine for me. So hopefully the Unity developers can get this rolled out to all. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Is it a full screen bug then ?
Would games run non windowed without the fix ?

At least for Faeria I can confirm that window mode works without problems.

That bug is not new, but it usually hits games in windowed mode. A lot of Unity games crash my Cinnamon desktop when I try to drag the window around. I guess it only hits rescalable windows though. Games that are affected include Kerbal Space Program, Infinifactory and SlimeRancher.

That's an entirely different issue by the sounds of it. This is something new with Unity 5.6 and full-screen games.

I've been hit by the full screen bug way before Unity 5.6. I recall I had this issue with Bionic Dues a year or so ago where the game would crash when I attempted to run it it in full screen mode but would work fine in windowed mode.
