Fatal Error: Steam must be running to play this game

I purchased the game about a month ago and everything has been working fine till the last update (1.0.177).
Now, whenever I try to start the game it brings up the error: "Steam must be running to play this game", although I start the game THROUGH steam.

here's a picture of the error:
