Mine Seeker Steam Achievements and Testing

HunterGaming

1127 views

Steam achievements for Mine Seeker are now complete. I will for sure be including these in all games going forward. Along with Cloud game saves and other services Steam offers now that I am more aware of what all they have to offer. Integrating with Steam was a particularly rewarding experience. I currently have 24 achievements players can earn. I had 30 but some were either not good or didn't fit the game well so in the end I actually removed some. Still a good number to keep people busy. So this screen shot says 9 of 30 achievements but its 24 now.

But now that the hard work is done I now will be putting together some marketing materials, not very good at this part but I do my best. I've also learned a few new things so I'm looking forward to applying them and see if it has an effect on my sales. I'll be making a video, a bunch of pics and descriptions, etc. Once I have this together I'll be uploading the game to Steam so I can more easily have people test the game. I didn't know this until a couple days ago but its a bit of a pain to get the game running without Steam's assistance installing dependencies. So once I get the game up on Steam, hopefully in a week or so, I'll be reaching out to testers, bloggers, YouTubers, etc to see if anyone has an interest in testing, reviewing, or talking about my game. 

I also heard of a service I've never heard of before, keymailer. They help put game creators in touch with streamers so I signed up to check it out and see what it involves. So if anyone has any experience with them, good or bad. I would love to hear about it. Also I will be passing out Steam keys for the first time so if anyone has any tips or suggestions on that it would be greatly appreciated.

      My project started in 2014 but recently ended due to no funds.  AltarisNine was a Minecraft project based on RPG. The concept was nine islands that you explore at a time to follow an in depth lore based on our own production team. This is where the 'Nine' comes in. With skepticism of future success we hope to make this tale into chapters. Such as the first one introducing Nine islands at time.
      It wasn't always the same though, my world did evolve over time and now I have a better idea of what it is better than ever. In the first island, Main Isle, is themed around jungles and wilderness. There's lore that stretches throughout the chapter which will engage the player. There would also be kinds of characters you can be such as any other RPG which could be talked about (because i'm still  about what I have lol)
      My former team was designing a world players would get into interact with in various ways. Boss battles would be minigames and the RPG lore would be engaged in and something indie platforms would enjoy and talk about beyond platforms.
      In the minecraft varient I was a builder, the leader, and the story director which everyone respected. I led my own team of builders and story writers. While I chose certain individuals to be the head department of development and art design.
      The reason I am here is to find a new team to help take this away from minecraft and hope we can be successful about it. I'll happily commute each and every person that volunteers and will be accommodated down the line with promotions, wages, and definitely praised for helping start my dream up.
      The first 8 pictures were of our hub, the other 9 was our factions world. The factions world doesn't retain to this project I wanted you to see how dedicated I was to making this project. I built everything in the hub myself except for the giant pagodas. The last two photos were all the ones I could find of the RPG world

      mod.io is an cross platform mod service created by the team behind ModDB.com and IndieDB.com. It can be integrated in-game using the  REST API, C/C++ SDK or engine plugins (if available) Unity and Unreal Engine are ready to use with other engine plugins in development.
      Features include:
      Platform agnostic (support 1 click mod installs on Steam, Epic Games Store, Discord, GOG, itch.io and even consoles in the future) Clientless (mod.io has no other dependencies and works behind the scenes in your game) Embeddable web app UI, so you can integrate your mod community anywhere Powerful search, filtering and tagging of mods Moderation and reporting systems built-in Steps to getting mod.io integrated:
      Add your game to our test environment or production Read our API documentation for an overview of how mod.io works Choose an Engine Plugin, API or SDK to integrate mod.io into your game and mod making tools Ready to launch? Add your game to our production environment then let's discuss promoting your release Need help? Our team is available on Discord to assist and our getting started guide has more information for you  
       
      Benefits of using mod.io:
      mod.io offers the same core functionality as Steamworks Workshop (1 click mod installs in-game), plus mod hosting, moderation and all of the critical pieces needed. Where we differ is our approach to modding and the flexibility a REST API offers. For example: 
      Our API is not dependent on a client or SDK, allowing you to run mod.io in many places such as your homepage and launchers Designing a good mod browsing UI is hard, our plugins ship with a UI built in to save you a lot of effort and help your mods stand out We don’t apply rules globally, so if you want to enable patronage, sales or other experimental features, reach out to discuss Our platform is built by the super experienced ModDB.com team and is continually improving for your benefit Your community can consume the mod.io API to build modding fan sites or discord bots if they want Large studios and publishers:
      A private white label option is available to license, if you want a fully featured mod-platform that you can control and host in-house. Contact us to discuss.

      When ever another window gains focus (the most simple way is to press Alt + Tab) on the same monitor, the game window will be forced into windowed mode. I already called MakeWindowAssociation with DXGI_MWA_NO_WINDOW_CHANGES and DXGI_MWA_NO_ALT_ENTER. And it returned success. No Alt + Enter works as expected, the default handler is gone. But the forced fullscreen state change seems can't be turned off completely. Does anyone have any better idea about this issue?
