I'm trying to play Terraria without initializing Steam but it is not working it displays

Please launch the game from your Steam client

Is there a possible way to do it?.

Terraria is now available on the XBox 360 ;) – McKay Apr 6 '13 at 5:14

I don't believe there is. Terraria is solely run from Steam, and the only possible way you could run it outside of Steam was if it was Pirated (which is illegal.) You can still play it if you're not connected to the internet, however. You simply run Steam in offline mode.

There is a way to play Terraria without using Steam. Is downloading Terraria Wrapper and executing it. This tool is often used to play Terraria in other resolution but also helps to initialize the game without the need of the Steam platform.

There's also a wrapper that allows for Terraria to be played on a Mac. If you own the game through Steam, you can run the wrapper once and play it without Steam. Just in case anyone was curious. – WingManEXE Apr 26 '13 at 15:03
