Dealer’s Life 1.17 update: Steam Achievements and Turkish localization!

Hello and welcome to all Great Dealers out there!



Today we’re back with another update and this one includes some changes that were requested by a huge number of our players! So we developed them in a timely manner and managed to release them in less than a month since the latest update!

Here are the release notes!

V. 1.17
  • Turkish localization!
  • Steam Achievements
  • Minor text and bug fixes

Let’s start with the Turkish Localization!



Dealer’s Life is having a huge success in Turkey and we understand that playing a game in your own language can improve a lot your experience, especially when there is a lot of text like in DL.
This was a very popular request and we really received a lot of messages and reviews about it: most of these were polite and kind, but honestly others were not so polite and not so kind.
We decided to listen to the kindest ones and, with the work of a professional and passionate translator, we managed to complete the Turkish Localization in just a couple of weeks!
As usual our Roadmap is always open if you find any typo, which can happen in a game with so many lines of text!

We hope this will make all the Turkish speaking players happy! Please consider reviewing or sharing the game if you want to show us your support!

The next big change in this update concerns Steam Achievements!
We didn’t include them at launch on Steam because we prioritized other tasks but we announced that we would have developed them as soon as possible, especially since the structure to support them was already implemented in the game and working fine on the mobile services (Google Play Games and Apple Game Center). It was not a difficult task but it was long as it was a matter of learning how to integrate Steam into our game and then thoroughly test the integration!
We worked on them in parallel during the latest updates and we have finally released them, so you can now unlock 45 achievements here on Steam too, one for every special moment in the game and each with of course a pinch of humour! 🙂



If you have any idea for an achievement you think that should be included, feel free to let us know on our Roadmap!

Going into more details on the Steam integrations topic, the changes released with this update laid the foundations for more features and the two things that we’ll surely evaluate in these weeks will be: Steam Leaderboards and Steam Cloud Save. Be sure to follow them and tell us if you think one should be prioritized over the other!

Moving on, we also included some minor fixes on text and localizations and some minor bug fixes. The most notable among these minor fixes concerns the clean exit of the game on PC, which on some machines had issues. We never managed to reproduce this issue but we analyzed all our code and made some small changes, this should be solved as it was confirmed by some of our players during the Beta testing!

And that’s all for this update!
We hope you’ll like all these improvements! As usual more is coming with the following releases (the big surprise was revealed and it’s “Storage Auctions”), so stay tuned, don’t forget to check our Roadmap and keep up the good deals!

A word about Dealer’s Life privacy policy

Hello and welcome to all Great Dealers out there!

Today we’d like to spend a word on Dealer’s Life privacy policy.
We know that reading privacy policies is boring (believe us, it’s the same for us when having to write them!) and we also know that sometimes they can seem "scary" as they are not written in an "ordinary" language (some companies even exploit this thing). The two things combined may trigger fears for your personal information.

If you want to know more, the first advice regarding our privacy policy is to read it carefully and till the end, you should not stop at the first line and then start fearing for the worst because there is absolutely nothing out of the ordinary in our policy.

To prove this point we just updated it and made it clearer, especially for PC users as we have less active services on the PC versions of our games.

And to be even clearer, we will summarize here all the services we use in our games, including the "mobile users only" ones too to highlight that they are not included in the Steam PC version that you are playing!

Firebase Remote Config
This is our remote configuration provider, it lets us dynamically set in-game parameters without having to modify it (i.e.: we don’t have to release an updated build).
We use it to trigger “Holiday Themes” (soon the Easter Theme will be activated!), to show in the main menu the “new version available” animation and to show on mobiles a special animation in Dealer’s Life Lite if the Premium version is on sale. We also have more ideas on this topic for the future, as this really helps setting events and special situations.


🎵 Last Christmas, I gave you my Pixelated Pickaxe 🎵
🎵 but the very next day you gave it away 🎵


Firebase Remote Config uses various types of Data as specified in Google privacy policy.

AdMob by Google (Mobile users only)
This is our ads provider, we need it to show ads on our mobile games and let you try Dealer’s Life Lite for free.

Google Admob uses cookies and unique device identifiers for advertising (Google Advertiser ID or IDFA, for example).
As per GDPR this is considered a “personal information” and this usage must be disclosed. We also added details on how to prevent its usage on both Google Play and App Store store descriptions.

The PC version does not have ads so of course this topic does not apply to PC players.

Google Analytics for Firebase (Mobile users only)
This is our analytics provider and, for those of you who don’t know how analytics work, they help track specific actions in the game for statistical purposes. In the early phase of Dealer’s Life development these were really important in helping us discover bugs or bad behaviors (especially connected to procedural generation) in the game.
Here are two examples that show how we use them:
  • an event when a player has no special encounters available which help discover possible situations where the procedural generation for special encounters has “blocking” conditions that prevent the generation.
  • an event that counts each game lost and each game won, which helped us keep the game balanced. In fact, if we saw too many games lost after an update, we were sure that we had changed something that made the game more difficult and this triggered a global balance check on our side.
Each event is of course completely anonymous meaning that we don’t know who has triggered the event but we just know what happened (i.e.: someone won the game).

Google Analytics for Firebase uses cookies, unique device identifiers for advertising (Google Advertiser ID or IDFA, for example) and Usage Data, as specified in Google privacy policy.

This topic does not apply to PC players: the PC version does not have analytics as Google Firebase does not support PC builds, which is unfortunate because, as we said above, they really can be helpful in balancing the game, but we decided to work on other game-related tasks rather than find a new analytics provider.

Other services
Google Play Games, Apple Game Center and Steam have their own privacy policies, if you want to know more be sure to read them on their websites.

In conclusion
We don’t receive any real personal information about our players, we just use these tools to develop the game and provide the best level of quality possible for all our players.

As always, if you have any question or concern feel free to ask and we’ll gladly answer as soon as possible.

Your friendly indie devs,
