Force windowed mode on startup

Solved: 5 Years, 7 Months, 3 Weeks ago Force windowed mode on startup
How do I force SOMA to run in windowed mode on startup? Is there a command line option that overrides anything in the configuration files?

I purchased SOMA on Steam. While trying different video settings to make the game run smoothly, I ended up choosing a full-screen resolution which causes the game to go to a black screen and flicker with the mouse locking up. I have to kill SOMA before I can use X again. Now, whenever I try to run SOMA, it defaults to this botched setting and I can't do anything.

I've checked about deleting your user profile but I have none. There is no Main directory in my ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/SOMA root nor is there a <UserName_Number>_user_settings.cfg that I can find "find * | grep .cfg". I played the first ten seconds of the game before jumping out and starting to tweak video settings. I tried running Soma.bin.x86_64 -cfg config/main_init_dev.cfg but the graphics settings persist.
