So a lot of people hate Steam for some reason, and don't want to use it. Well, I discovered a way by accident when I was looking for my world saves. If you navigate to this directory: C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/terraria * There will be an .EXE file named "Terraria" (Bet you didn't see that one coming) If you boot up this file, Terraria will launch without having to have Steam open in the first place. I feel this will be helpful to a lot of people who want to play without using the Steam program. Leave a reply or a like, let me know it helped you! * In a 64 Bit Windows OS, the path will be C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/terraria Please, keep this thread in the front page for others to see, maybe we can get it stickied This no longer works, as a recent patch fixed this.
