Are there achievements in SpaceChem? When I look at the Steam page, it says I've earned 0/15, but doesn't list any. Are they hidden until you stumble onto them?

On the 29th of April 2011 the game received an update.

Among other changes, all the 12 challenges previously only visible in the game, are now also visible Steam achievements, and there are an additional 3 achievements related to a TF2 tie-in.

This accounts for all 15 previously "empty" achievements on Steam.

Additionally, I was awarded Steam achievements for each completed Challenge without having to re-complete them, but I'm not sure of the mechanics in operation here to know how this is managed.

Unfortunately Android doesn't seem to support 'em. I had to copy the savefile to the Steam version and uploading it from the PC. (it's quite easy, though) – lapo May 4 '15 at 6:38

You can see a list of achievements in the main screen, behind a button labelled 'Challenges' :)

In Steam, clicking Achievements brings you to a blank list. In-game, there's a 'Challenges' button, but being awarded those doesn't seem to have any connection to the Steam Achievements. Are you referring to something else, or? – Tim Stone Mar 29 '11 at 17:25
@Tim Well, if there are achievements in the game, they're those. – badp Mar 29 '11 at 18:01
I was specifically referring to Steam achievements; hence talking about the Steam achievements page. – Nick T Mar 29 '11 at 22:11

Where are you seeing this 0/15? The SpaceChem store page does not show it having any achievements (there would be an indicator of it below the "Single-player" one in the Game Details box).

Looking on the Steam forums for the game, the developer has said that they'd be coming in a future update, but it doesn't look like the game has received any updates yet.

When I view the game in my library, under achievements it says Locked achievements: +15, and when I click "View All Achievements" it shows that I have 0/15 – Nick T Mar 29 '11 at 17:45
