GUEST POST BY CARMELLA

Hello everyone, this is Carmella, Loyal Companion and Varmint Control Officer at Eduweb, filling in for Dave this week. Me and my pack were up north this week, taking a break and checking out the wildlife. We saw lots! Eagles, herons (both green and great blue), loons (including a juvenile just learning how to fly), beavers (yikes! I’ve heard stories about them!), white-tailed deer, and hummingbirds, kingfishers, and a lot of other birds. We even saw a fellow canine — probably a coyote, but who knows, it might have been a wolf!

I admit to napping much of the time and, from what I saw, Dave mostly took the week of from WolfQuest. But I did hear some talk. Sounds like the new elk model is almost done and apparently looks delicious. I heard a lot of muttering about trees — did you know that these big new maps have over 100,000 trees on them? And Tommi-the-programmer is working on the frontal attacks on the elk, which sound rather terrifying if you ask me. I myself prefer squirrels — in my youth, I notched six kills of those varmints! Of course, this being my 10th year (just like WolfQuest!), I focus mostly on flies nowadays. I’m too old to bother tracking my kills anymore, but I can assure you I would’ve earned few achievements this week if I did.

Linux version ready for testing!

We've got a Linux version of WolfQuest ready for testing -- and we hope that a few of you would like to test it. The game looks good and runs well on my Linux box, but I haven't tested it extensively, and there's certainly some variation across Linux systems, so we hope to get some testing and feedback before we make it an officially supported platform

It's currently available as a beta build. To download it: Right-click on WolfQuest in your Steam Library, then choose Properties. Then click the BETAS tab, and select the "linuxtest" option in the pulldown menu. Then click Close and that should begin downloading. (If you don't see "linuxtest" listed there, quit and restart Steam.)

thanks
Dave

About This Game

LIVE THE LIFE OF A WILD WOLF!

WHAT IS IT?

A wildlife simulation game about wolf ecology.

EMBARK ON A QUEST FOR SURVIVAL!

When the game begins, you are a two-year-old gray wolf born in the Northern Range of Yellowstone National Park. You learned the ways of the wolf in your birth pack. Now it's time for you to learn how to live on your own.Your quest begins on the slopes of Amethyst Mountain and eventually takes you across the Lamar Valley to Slough Creek. There, you and your mate will establish a territory and raise a litter of pups: training them, feeding them, defending them against predators, and finally taking them on a cross-country journey to a summer home. Ultimately, your success will depend on your ability to ensure the survival of your pack.

PLAY ALONE OR WITH FRIENDS!!

In single-player games, learn how to hunt elk, communicate with other wolves, find a mate, establish a den and territory, raise pups, and embark on a perilous journey to a summering site.

In multiplayer games, explore the wilderness and hunt elk together, and now raise pups together! This new version features the entire Slough Creek mission arc, from choosing a den to raising pups and traveling to the rendezvous site. There are two types of multiplayer games:
  • Private games: Invite-only, featuring voice, text, and phrase chat.
  • Public games: Anyone can join, phrase chat or (for players age 13 and up) text chat.

WHAT'S NEW?

This new version improves and expands upon the original game, a grant-funded project that has been downloaded by over five million players around the world since its original release in 2008. Now, for this version 2.7, we've refined gameplay and graphics, added a new player account system with achievements, friends lists, and more, and completely rewrote the animal AI system. We've also added more wolf howls, over two dozen wolf customizations, and emotes -- accurate wolf behaviors to communicate with your packmates. And we created a mysterious new map to explore in single and multiplayer games. As always, there's also an active online community where you can discuss the game with other players and share artwork and stories about wolves. Visit www.wolfquest.org to join in.

MORE NEW STUFF! We've added cougars, moose, foxes, ravens, and a plethora of bird and insect life to the game, along with much richer and varied vegetation.

NEW EPISODE IN DEVELOPMENT!

We're making the long-awaited new episode, in which your pups continue to grow and eventually learn how to hunt! New map, new missions, and new multiplayer modes. Read about it here.
