Subset Games today released a small update to FTL: Faster Than Light, finally giving it some Steam Achievements after the original release in 2012.
FTL did already have its own built-in achievements but now it's all nicely hooked up with the Steam API so you can show off how good you are. Not me though, I think I only ever had one successful run of it. Absolutely brilliant game though, a real devil with your time as you just want one more run.
FTL is actually one of the earliest success stories, especially for Linux gaming too, that came from a Kickstarter campaign. When they launched it, they had a tiny goal of $10,000 which was smashed ending on $200,542. This was before the likes of Wasteland 2, the Ouya, Planetary Annihilation and a ton more that eventually followed went to crowdfunding too.
Pick it up from Humble Store or Steam.
Quoting: appetrosyanQuestion: why do people care about achievements?
With the risk of this just being flame-bait. Because it gives a sense of accomplishment...
Quoting: appetrosyanQuestion: why do people care about achievements?Why do people care about taking photos of weddings? Why do people frame their diploma and hang it on the wall? Why do people keep sentimental mementos of any sort? They provide something you can look back on in the future and bring back memories associated with the event (happy, sad, angry, bittersweet, whatever).
