why are newer double fine games dropping achievements on steam ?

Recommended Posts

This really confuses me , as most earlier releases even tracing back to Psychonauts the first game has achievements.

I have noticed that most of the early access releases like spacebase, hack n slash and even new releases like broken age have all dropped achievements support ? why ? what if these games are going to be released on consoles in the future ?

It may be because none of those games are complete yet. Broken Age still has act 2 under development, and both SBDF9 and Hack 'n' Slash are early access. I imagine that achievement support is probably a low priority when there's still plenty of work to do on the game itself.

that makes sense for the early access games but act 1 is a complete experience , are they expecting people to play act 1 again if they add it after releasing act 2 ?

i haven't even heard of anything mentioned anywhere remotely that these would even have any achievements support at all.

not even sure if massive chalice has achievements?

I think act 2 is intended to be added to act 1, becoming one game.

Broken Age really doesn't need achievements. There isn't really much to do outside the main quest.

I don't think it's even possible to unlock achievements in Early Access games, since I've had a couple of those that have had achievements listed but didn't actually unlock anything until they left Early Access.
