Probably need more to go on. GPU/driver, any errors or warnings?

I've actually had the black screen of death show up in a couple of games lately. In one case I could work around it by setting LIBGL_DRI3_DISABLE=1 In another case it was caused by the Steam overlay. Disabling it didn't have any effect, I had to make sure that gameoverlayrenderer.so was not LD_PRELOAD'ed.

This is the command I use for Worms W.M.D.:
 
LC_ALL=C LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$HOME/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu:$HOME/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu" %command%

I don’t know what it does, but it works for me.
