For our game, me and my brother have gone all out, trying to make it as great as possible. Now, he wants Steam Achievements.
Would it be possible to do that with Game Maker?

The game would need to be on Steam to have achievements in the first place.

Steampowered.com  is how to get the game is on Steam.

i think the way it works is that after its added on steam, valve will probably give you the tools to implement it in your code, i checked on google seems like theres no answer for it

To summarise, after steam has taken an interest in your game, they will more than likely give you some tools or a simple .dll file that you would then import into your game and with that, you would have the chance to incorporate the achievements as well as other steam features.
