Gurumin A Monstrous Adventure: How to Fix Crash on Startup Quickly

Quick tip for disabling Steam overlay to prevent the game from crashing


Crash at Startup Quick Fix
Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure has a pesky little compatibility problem with Steam’s overlay which might crash the game wile trying to bring up the keyboard. Since you are prompted to name your character when starting a new game for the first time, if you are playing with a controller your game will most likely crash at this point. To quickly circumvent this problem you can either:

  1. Press the New Game button with your mouse in order to use your actual keyboard.
  2. Go to the game’s property and turn off Steam overlay.
  3. Go to Steam’s setting and turn off big picture overlay in general.

As an added tip, the game’s graphics options do not seem to pop up when playing with a controller unless big picture mode is turned off, so you might want to turn it off while you tweak the game’s settings for the first time.

Hopefully this can help you get started on your wacky monster quest.
