So is this an actual movie?
I'm confused. It's on Steam and has achievements. Is this a movie or an 'interactive experience hurr'?

A movie, that has achievements for watching, watching it with commentary and stuff like that but it is a normal movie. It also has a little mini-game that is playable from the menu.

I didn't try anything. It was a question. And it got answered. The end.

Great, now we get achievements for watching movies. What's next? Achievement for turning on your pc?

Though tbh, I feel I should get an achievement for getting out of bed in the morning. That ♥♥♥♥'s hard.

My thoughts exactly. It's bad enough having games condesending you by going 'WELL DONE U SHOOT A GUN U R AMAZING HERE ACHIEVEMENT CLEVER BOY KEEP GOING GOOD JOB', but now they're in movies?
'WELL DONE U WATCHED 2 THE END NOT MANY PEOPLE DO DAT HERE ACHIEVEMENT'.

I'm pretty sure the achievements were implemented to let the people behind the movie know how many people were actually watching the whole thing, or watching all the extras, or listening to the commentaries and all that. Just to know what they should do in future projects I guess.

This is more than likely the exact reason it was implemented. They're able to track the amount of people have which achievement, so in the future they'll know if it's worth doing something or if they should allocate their budget elsewhere.

I don't think so, you two. This movie is available from many difference places and in different formats than just Steam. I personally got it in a humble bundle and then streamed it, I could've also downloaded it from there. You can buy it on Youtube etc etc. Where are the achievements tracking whether I watched it all in those? I mean, if they want to know these things, they're gonna want to know about all the copies, not just Steam copies, right? Sure, there are other ways of seeing this data, but that then shows that the Steam achievements were not implemented solely for this reason.

I'm pretty sure Indie Game: The Movie was Steam's first movie, and I'd bet that it has achievements purely because a lot of the content on here does. That's all there is to it I reckon. Kiddies love their achievements :)

I'll say. I remember I saw a post on the Rayman Legends Community hub earlier where the OP said he wouldn't buy the game if it didn't have achievements.
Pretty pathetic if you ask me.

Yeah it's sad. I've seen that said on some games' forums. Condemned is one of them.

I remember people saying they weren't buying MGS4 on the PS3 because it didn't have trophies. I mean seriously, that game was amazing.

They're only missing out though.
