    Steam initialization failed [resolved]

    Well, that seems to have fixed the issue. I was able to run the game after clearing the cache and running steam in admin mode. (I did not perform the third step.) After that, I decided to restart steam again in regular (non-admin) mode to see if the game would still run. I got the same error as before. In short, I can't say whether or not resetting the cache made any difference, but it seems I must have steam running in admin mode in order to play this game. While I generally trust the steam client to not do anything malicious, I have to say I do not like the additional security hole that comes with providing steam full admin privileges. This is the only game I have (out of many) that has required this in order to work. This makes me very uncomfortable, but I suppose it'll have to do. Thank you for your support.

    Thank you for the update. Hopefully when steam support gets a reply back to your team, it won't be too difficult to fix.

    Tried running the game directly via .exe as administrator. Same error. Installed the Visual C++ Redist 2008 (x86) package. Shut down steam, restarted pc, launched steam. Tried running the game again, both through the steam client, and via .exe as administrator. Still the same error.

    No, I have many many games on steam. No real info to add. I checked the Academagia log (C:\ProgramData\Academagia\Academagia.log), and it really doesn't tell anything new/useful.

If it matters at all, I've got my Steam installed in a custom directory (not the program files directory).
  6. Just purchased and installed Academagia on steam. When launching, UAC requests admin permissions. After I (begrudgingly) grant admin permissions, the game fails to launch with the following message: "Steam initialization failed. Application will be terminated." I've verified the integrity of the game cache. (no problems found) I've restarted the PC. I've tried reinstalling the game. (issue still persists) OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 980 Processor, 3.70 GHz RAM: 16 GB GPU: two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960s in SLI configuration.
