    Sniarb wouldn't unlock for me. Tried it on 2 story playthroughs. Going to uninstall and try it again.

    Sniarb wouldn't unlock for me. Tried it on 2 story playthroughs. Going to uninstall and try it again.Does it look locked or unlocked in game and in the xbox app ?

    If it is locked, it seems similar to my issue with "Mjam-Mjam", which i'm unable to unlock. I've tried to uninstall/reinstall, and tried on another PC without success.

    I've contacted the support of Daedelic. They replied that they're not aware of any issue, but that they will investigate further.

    It says "Locked" in both game and xbox app. Contacted Daedelic support via their forums, facebook and direct email message as well as contacting MS Support on twitter to see if they can look into as well now.

    Tried it on the same playthrough, new save files, uninstall/resinstall all without success as well.

    I was unlocking fine until Chapter 8, then nothing else would pop. Achievement meters stopped moving too on the Xbox App.

    Gunstar Red said:I was unlocking fine until Chapter 8, then nothing else would pop. Achievement meters stopped moving too on the Xbox App.Same here! Just loaded up the game again and tried level 8, the first achievement during the level didn't unlock. Pretty annoying.

    Edit: The one that should have unlocked actually says 100% on my Xbox One, so who knows if it'll ever unlock properly.

    Looks like some people on TA are still able to unlock achievements on this from the list of Recent Winners, but all my recent ones have still been stuck on Done Unlocking for a few days now.

    Xbox support pointed me to MS chat or phone support, which isn't going to solve anything because the issue is with the game and not MS. The game developers facebook told me to email their support and that was 3 days ago with nothing but the auto response from Daedalic.

    I would recommend everyone to post on their forums: http://forum.daedalic.de/viewtopic.php?f=222&t=6141

    I have left my 2 cents/rant, but I think it would be helpful for them to understand the community they are ignoring so please add your comments as well.

    But their responses are less they favorable so far in that they consider broken achievements very far down their list of issues.

    "I will not comment on the issue further after this post, so...
    We are aware that the achievements aren't working for some people and we are sorry for that.
    But our resources for bugfixing are rather limited and are very much focused on exactly this: fixing bugs, especially gamebreaking ones. So if the majority of our players can play our games from Beginning to End, we have achieved our goal. Fixing Steam Achievements is on that list for bugfixing, but it's pretty far down the line as we do not consider these "gamebreaking" (they don't prevent you from enjoying our games)."

    To be fair to future gamers looking at this game, and given the developers responses, we should mark all of these achievements as buggy so that gamers are aware this may not work. The company doesn't appear to have high concern to fix these either so as gamers we shouldn't give them our money for an incomplete product at that is our only way to prove to the developers that this is indeed an important feature that needs to be fixed or else it will hurt sales.

    Another response:

    "This is another point: It is not like the achievements simply don't work, period. They do work - they also work when we QA the game and they work for most of our customers. Which is not my way of saying "You are screwed", mind you. As I said we really are sorry that the achievements are not working for some of you. But as said real gamebreaking bugs are very much at a higher point of priority for us.

    It saddens us that this makes you feel left out, but our games are about the story, the game mechanics - just like old-school adventures. Achievements are more like the decoration on the icing of the cake - it doesn't change the cake's taste."

    well then don't say you have achievements if someone stuck their finger in the icing... maybe some people didn't get the game for the dry cakey gameplay. give me those sweet sweet achievements.

    To be fair to them it is the OS not the game that's broke the achievements, for the most part they cant fix them and as per usual MS pushes off the blame even though only they can sort it.
    Pom poms at the ready, cheerleaders!

    they probably had no idea how much of a hassle it would be to get it working properly. this is some small indie phone dev right? not like someone who has had plenty of tries to get it right. looking at you Game Troopers...

    I started playing this game on 3/26. None of the achievements were popping for me and I quit after finishing 4 levels. Yesterday morning when my gamertag was scanned, while I was at work and not logged in on anything, the game showed up on here and all achievements that i had gained finally popped and when I played again this afternoon the achievements were popping as I got them without delay. Not sure why it took 5 days to show up but they do work..... eventually.

    ^^^I'm going on my 8th day since it last properly unlocked achievements when it should. All my achievements earned on March 29 are still showing at 100% but locked on the Xbox App.

    FYI, the support team from Daedelic contacted me yesterday, asking me to perform a test and to send them a log file.
    So, they are working on some of the problems.

    I'll keep you informed.
