Running without Steam account ID?

I would like to run the game without Steam. The launcher starts fine, but I get the following error on terminal when trying to launch the client:

[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; no appID found.
Either launch the game from Steam, or put the file steam_appid.txt containing the correct appID in your game folder.

Is there a workaround for this? This is not a Steam account, and I would not like the game to run with Steam integration.

From my understanding, this is an optional step in the launcher boot, no need to worry.
