Important notice about Achievements
The in-game achievements work just fine, if you're not interested by Steam achievements you can ignore this notice.


Due to major technical difficulties with the last update we're unable to unlock Steam achievements with the current version of the game.

We wanted to delete all achievements but due to a bug in how Steam calculate achievements in profile pages this wasn't possible.

After some discussion with the community we found the following solution.
We kept an old build of Penguins Arena in a different branch, so players who really want to unlock the Steam achievement can still do so.
Here the procedure:
1/ in Steam, select the "steam achievements" branch for Penguins Arena
2/ unlock the Steam achievements
3/ go back to the main branch

Note that this build only work on Windows but should work fine on Mac using an emulator.

This build is incompatible with the current one so you'll not be able to play with other online players. Remember to go back to the official branch afterward!

We apologize for the troubles.

What is a "Branch"? I do not understand your steps.

Thanks for this solution, this is the best approach to both enjoy the new build of the game, but also keep achievement hunters satisfied.

If only more developers would make use of different builds through Steam for cases such as this. There are so many ways to accommodate different Steamworks features with Steam's beta branch, where people can play different builds of the game, even if some of the features are not functioning.

Duels don't refer to the duel mode but rather go into team deathmatch and each team has a number of players, generally 6v6. When that number drops to 1v1, that's what duel they're looking for.
Wow, that's really cool! Thanks for putting in the extra work for those of us who enjoy getting Steam achievements. Other devs would have simply removed them (which would cause the 0% bug in the profiles of those who'd earned them), but you kept the old version for us.

Props to you!

I actually played the game a bit today, to get the cards. It was fun. A bit frustrating at times, but fun.

Duel mode is 3v3 in life to begin with.

in what?

What duel means is when both numbers for both teams is at 1. Duel mode starts both players with 3 lives a piece, meaning 3v3. The achievement was most likely designed with deathmatch involved where the only way to get a duel is by 1v1 which also means both teams only have 1 life. By playing duel mode and getting the opponent to 1 life, then suiciding yourself til you end up with 1 life will create a duel situation.

I already wrote all that, in 1 sentence O.O

Actually you edited your post and you didn't even clarify anything and considering the fact that you couldn't get it to trigger meant that you weren't sure to this point either.
