Default Legends of Dawn - Post-Funding Update #21, Achievements

May 8th, 2013, 13:12
The Legends of Dawn devs bring us news that their game has over 140 achievements and that this will be fully integrated with Steam (although it also works off-line). In addition there is also news on voice-overs and the beta.
As we informed you on March 20th we got Steam SDK and beside working on voice overs we were studying that stuff. So over the course of last few weeks we have revamped Achievement system. This is mainly due to the fact that now we have access to Steam systems. We are striving to make the game as compatible with Steam as we can. This, however, does not mean that non-Steam players will lack anything. All achievements are available in off-line mode as well.
Our upgraded Achievements panel had three categories with 7 achievements in each category. After these new upgrades we have implemented over 20 achievement categories with more than 142 different achievements. We hope this will make better playing experience for all our players.
Some of these achievements are quite easy to complete and some are really difficult. Some of them even require that you play the game multiple times.
We'd like to hear in comments section about experiences that you had with Steam achievements (particularly with single player RPGs).
And on the beta:
Yet another unexpected and important job is in front of us; Many backers requested the game through GoG and we were already in discussions with them about releasing Legends of Dawn on their platform. However they request that the game should be playable 100% in off-line mode. Legends of Dawn isn't online game however we built it in a such a way that the game requests an IP so the computer has to be connected to router when starting the game. Afterwards the connection isn't needed however this is a limitation that they do not want so as soon as we test the achievement system we'll work on that.
Originally we planned to release the beta as soon as we test all VOs, however expansion of the achievement system and planned work on GoG's request are core features that have to be a part of beta testing so we'll first do all that and then we'll have to learn how to publish the beta through Steam to a selected few testers.
More information.

Computer n. A machine which flawlessly performs the instructions it is given, no matter how flawed those instructions may be.

GOG is evil.
In a positive way.

That online requirement seems kinda suspicious. A lot of annoyed backers are commenting that it's essentially DRM.

They might just be collecting data to find out what quests are being done and stuff like that. If it doesn't make the connection it just shrugs and moves on. A bit suspicious, I suppose, but if it is then they wouldn't be working on the issue.

Umm, 142 achievements?? Either this game is HUGE or that's way too many, IMHO.
