Odd thing for a game to be missing on steam these days, agree though they should add them

This isn't really an achievement friendly game. It is a story generator where you make your own goals. While there is the "get off the planet" goals of either building a ship or going up the empire rankings enough...most people don't really go into a game looking to do those things. In reality there is no goal other than the ones you give yourself in this game. To add steam achievements would be entirely counter to the idea of a choose your own goal story generator.

Plus with the developer console and god mode right there on the option screen you would literally be able to do all the achievements in like 5 minutes.
Achievement: Find out what happens after starting the reactor.

Bonus points if you do it after 10-15 in-game years.

Yes, I suppose it might take an additional 5 minutes to advance the game date an extra 10 years in Dev mode. 600 clicks on ''advance 1 day''.

Tynan said in an interview that Rimworld will never get achievements. As I remember it, he believes it would change the focus of the game and make it less about the emergent story, characters, and the drama to instead more about playing specifically to reach a certain goal at the detriment to the rest of the game.

People who don't buy games because they lack achievements aren't the kind of people I want in gaming communities to begin with, so this is a net win for me.

Nonetheless, most of us prefer more content and/or bugfixes, over cheevos. Sales aren't hurting, notably.

Your inappropriate use of the word ''literally'' would tend to indicate that you have yet to reach that stage in your life at which it becomes fit and proper for you to express opinions in public.
Perhaps you should refrain from doing so until you have acquired AND paid off student debt since it is abundantly clear that you have preciously little idea what words mean. Education and life experience would help you in that regard.

... Huh...

Yes.

Yes, it was a joke. A bad one at that.

I don't think it's a reason for any of us to start a taunting/IQ showdown off such stupid thing. Let's just calm down. We are all taking things a bit too serious here.

... or maybe this is staged and I am being seriously fooled.

Edit: If that's the case I want to be the first on getting the achievement.

For the same reason as with all achievements: because they are there and as a presentable record of what you have done.... amh, yes.

And if they are not there, then... I don't know.
Last but not least, sometimes they are nice colorful pictures like a trading card. Ok, nothing to trade but still. :DE_Grin:
