Achievement Set Requirements

Every Achievement Set MUST Havelink

  • All game page information filled out, and game images uploaded (if you're not a full-dev, send the images to the code-reviewers).
  • Game Badges for each achievement (they don't need to be distinct from each other, just don't leave them blank).
  • Content covering up to completion so long as the game can be beaten. Whether it be defeating the final boss, completing a first loop, or completing all puzzles, achievement sets that do not cover at least beating the game are deemed unfinished and therefore subject to demotion. Arcade-style games where the focus is on high scores (such as Pac-Man and Crystal Castles) are exempt from this rule.
    • Regarding compilation games, such as Intellivision Classic Games (PlayStation), it is not required for every game in the compilation to have achievements. However, those that do have achievements must adhere to the above policy.
  • Progression and Win Conditions marked on applicable achievements. See Progression and Win Condition Typing for full guidelines
  • Protection for situations where the players can get achievements without effort, such as:
  • Basic Rich Presence (only available for full-devs).
  • Leaderboards for scores and time challenges.
  • Missable achievements flagged, especially for RPGs and long games. - Use [m] in the end of achievement's title to flag it as missable. This is the standard format and must be used for consistency. - Avoid overuse. If most of an achievement set is marked as missable, the mark becomes meaningless for that set.
  • An achievement guide. Guides can be created and posted here.
  • For games with text-triggered achievements (especially RPGs) it's recommend to find an event flag instead of hooking onto text or text ID. Text presentation varies between regional versions making multi-region support difficult.
