Steam Error - Need to be running Steam to play...
Just purchased the game yesterday on Steam. I played for a few hours but today when I went to play the game I got an error code from Steam saying that Steam needed to be running to play the game. I fired up the game from Steam so that is not the issue. I reinstalled the game with my antivirus off but still getting the same message. I tried to contact Ndemic support through the website but kept getting captcha errors. Hoping someone can help me out.


Below is the error log.

Update your drivers, delete and re-install the game, verify the integrity of the game cache. Then delete and re-install Steam.
