Steam achievements?

#1 Posted by MrCandleguy (822 posts) -

Do you think Steam achievements would be a good addition to the game? For example

Roommates- Get your First NPC  
Well this is hot- Come across your first meteor
This is totally not a lightsaber - Create your first Phaseblade
I am the destroyer of all things round - Destroy your first ShadowBall.

I'm pretty sure they already have plans for steam achievements.


EDIT:  There is a thread with some of the things they're planning on adding first.

I like this game and Steam Achievements will be a very nice and welcome addition to it, but I refuse to play it until they add official support for other resolutions than 800x600. It is completely possible, seeing there are couple of loaders that can force custom resolutions, but they don't work with Steam, unfortunately.
 
But yes, gimme some Steam Cheevos, please.

@OtakuGamer: I think so. At least from what I've heard.

The custom launchers do work with steam -- just install them in your steamapps\common\terraria folder and launch from there.  If you absolutely must show up on your friends list as playing terraria, launch it and minimize it, then use your launcher.   The only reason I ever use a launcher is to play at eyefinity resolutions, otherwise just maximizing the window on one monitor works fine.

You don't need any custom launchers now, just maximizing it up-rezes the game now.

The launcher is still needed to play in eyefinity/surround, but other than that, yes.

Achievements might be the perfect carrot on a stick for me to play more.

I can't seem to get sucked in, at least not like my minecraft addiction.
