The latest version of Terraria on Steam.
Windows steam and terraria.
Joining servers also works.
The wrapper has been tested to be fully working on:
10.10 Yosemite. However, for Yosemite XQuartz has to be installed for it to work.
What does not
Steam overlay for terraria. Terraria will run with steam overlay enabled but crashes upon pressing any keyboard buttons. The error that caused this was something related to authentication problems.
DISABLE STEAM OVERLAY
What was not tested
This wrapper was not tested on Lion or Mountain Lion. Install XQuartz if it crashes.
I have not tested whether it was possible to host a server.
DISABLE STEAM OVERLAY before launching terraria in steam. READ THE "READ THIS SHIT" text file.

Step 1: Install Steam from the Website.
For issues related to Steam visit it's wine page: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=1163
Step 2: Download and install Terraria. This will install XNA Redist as well.
Step 3: Exit Steam.
Step 4: Install .NET 4 from the Full Installer from: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17718
Step 5: Start steam and run Terraria
Connecting to multiplayer servers:
Open a terminal and run the following command(replace $SERVER with the address of the multiplayer server):
ssh -L 7777:$SERVER:7777 localhost -N
It'll open a local port forward. Let it keep running. Then, on Terraria, connect to 127.0.0.1:7777. It will fool Terraria into connecting locally and work around the "Requesting tile data..." problem.
Stuttering sound issue:
If you ran into the stuttering sound issue, all you need to do is
install some missing audio codecs using winetricks. Run the following
winetricks dirac directmusic dmsynth dsound ffdshow icodecs l3codecx
Unhandled exception; Could not find a Direct3D device that supports the XNA Framework Reach profile:
If you run into this issue attempt running in a virtual desktop. Run winecfg and in the graphics tab check Emulate a virtual desktop and then enter the size you desire.
