Achievments & Trading Cards

Postby raw1990 » Thu May 05, 2016 3:09 pm

Dear developer hello!

I know that many people have Ascent wish listed, meaning they are interested but yet lack the "final push" to press the "buy" button.
I have been a steam user for many years and have hundreds of steam friends. It may sound strange but a lot of steam users are in this not only for the games themselves but also for the steam community and they are suckers (me included) for making badges, trading cards and getting steam achievements. I am no developer so I really do not know the work needed to create support for a few (even 1 achievement) or 5 trading cards.
But I am absolutely sure that adding those steam community features can convince some more players to buy the game, as soon as they will try it... They will see how good it is (so many positive steam reviews!)
So, just a thought from a steam junkie.

Have a wonderful week!

I second this thought, although building a balanced set of Achievements takes a lot of planning and shouldn't be rushed.

Personally I love the game already but I can see where a big list of Achievements would bring in more players and give them a reason to play long enough for the game itself to grow on them like the rest of us who have stopped playing anything else.

Trading cards for many of the favorite ship hulls could be a fun idea as well, as long as there isn't too much Steam red tape to dig through to enable trading cards.

That's a beautiful list!
I agree the Ascent has an amazing amount of content and It will definitely grow on you.
But one can figure that out only when he steps into the water, and like I said before Achievements and Trading Cards is a nice bonus that makes steam junkies "happy" =), and might push them to press the buy button :D

I like this idea too, having a collection cards for the game could help finance the game as well.
