That seems to be that was said about the patch.

This sucks I like earning achievements but just being handed them due to a glitch is boring. Hope they fix it soon.
I'm from Buenos Aires and I say kill em all!

I know right. Just when I entered the castle I unlocked the achievement for absorbing my 4th boss cell.. And I only beat the game once like... Really?

Everyone who earned those ridiculously hard Achievements legitimately has my deepest, most sincere sympathies, as their integrity has been forever sullied and that literally CAN'T be fixed. This is the videogame development equivalent of a never event—there is no valid excuse for this, nor can there ever be one. Achievements are very easy to code (they're a single flag) and very important to get right (as they're platform-meta), so this sort of thing will only happen as the result of a reprehensible level of negligence. Enjoy Dead Cells though I may, I will remember this the next time I see Motion Twin's name on a game.

From their Twitter, they seemed have to no idea at the time what was causing these achievement issues.

New update, I think the achievements problem is gone now.

It seems like it. I selected saves from the main menu and hit cn_A on my save file and it immediately unlocked the rune achievements and my first boss stem cell.

Post patch all looks OK for me - I didn't get the achievement for defeating Hand of the King, but will confirm if I get it next time I beat him.

Edit - Finished a run there, got it.
