Time for steam stuff, huh. I'm actually glad that you hadn't even thought about extraneous stuff like achievements earlier.


Some simple suggestions:
Score 5 critical hits in a row - "Precise aim"
Reach the max level (in a single playthrough?) - "Powergamer"
Loot 50 low-value containers - "Dumpster diver"
Map (visit?) every area in the game - "Explorer"
Use tech devices (NV goggles, etc) 30 times - "Gadgeteer"
Lure an enemy into their own trap - "Oh the irony"

Achievements for major plot progress (eg. unlocking metro travel) and special events (eg. successfully communicating with the Silent Isle pillars) could also work.

Something for people who want actual, literal achievements:
Complete the game without killing anyone or anything - "The Pacifist"
Complete the game without taking any damage in combat - "The Untouchable"
Complete the game without buying anything from merchants - "Living off the land"

And add hidden "Completed the unofficial final quest" achievement for killing everyone in SGS :P

Suggestion:  as an old man, I have no use for achievements and in fact find them really irritating.  Please include a way to disable them.

Jasper Byrne of Sole Survivor wrote recently that he was compelled to include achievements for his game when porting it to console.  He also hates them, but compromised by allowing the player to opt out.

That would be a really cool feature, but as far as I'm concerned, there's no way to toggle steam achievements (from the player side) there are ways to disable them from popping up through the in-game tab in the steam options though.

I would assume there's a way to disable them in the Steam client as it displays them, not the game.

Btw, guys, lots of good suggestions. Used some of the names for what they were suggested and some inspired me for other achievements.

I'm almost done with implementing the initial 50 achievements.

Only the steam version will have achievements, right? ...right?

Might want to look at some long-term acheivments, eg: "Deal 100,000 points of damage", or "Heal heal yourself a total of 5,000 points".

Achievements must drive sales, surely. In the last 2 days I've had 3 co-workers ask me IRL what this Underrail game is that they've seen me gain achievements in the steam activity feed.

I'd suggest taking a look at Team Fortress 2. Some of that game's achievements would take years of play.
