That's sort of a moot point with Aquaria, as there's no online
multiplayer aspect. As for achievements, they're just achievements. I
loaded up one of my savegames from the HIB into the Steam version, and
it gave me a few (but not all) of the achievements I had on that save.
I don't see Steam complaining about that.
