I Smell Elk! (Developer's Blog)

One of the many legacies of our original 2006-07 development effort is the simplicity of most game systems. Our great challenge back then was how to distill the sprawling complexity and variation of real-world ecological systems into something simple enough for our audience to learn quickly (and for us to implement almost as quickly). The elk and stranger wolf zones are one product of that time. We didn’t want to make players wander excessively in search of prey or other wolves. We figured that real wolves do know roughly where to find elk, so establishing elk hunting zones on the map recognized that canine knowledge while also helping players. Limiting the scent spores to those zones, for both elk and stranger wolves, was partly for usability’s sake (again, to prevent tedious wandering) and partly for technical reasons (those scent effects had a performance impact on 2005-era computers).

But now, a full decade later (!), we are redesigning these systems.

Elk certainly do have favored grazing areas, but these extend over much larger areas than our small hunting zones. So we’re building a new spawning system that will put elk and other animals anywhere they would realistically be found. In contrast to the current system, elk and other animals will always be out there — somewhere — for you to find. For example, in Tower Fall, elk might be found almost anywhere, but they’re most common in the uplands where conditions are wetter and grass is greenest. That’s in the summertime. In the fall, they move down into lower elevations. We’ll model this with our new more sophisticated spawning system — for elk, for moose, and for other animals including stranger wolves.

With such wide-ranging prey, players will truly depend on scent view to find elk and other animals. In our new scent system, scent spores will float long distances on the wind. Players can pick up a scent trail a kilometer or two downwind. By heading upwind into these scents, players will hone in on their target — and then pick up a scented trail of elk tracks to close the remaining distance.


Scents floating on the wind


Scented elk tracks

We’ve got these systems built. Now we have to make sure they work well for players. When searching for windborne scents, it’s quite possible to run around for much longer than I would consider fun. It’s also not clear when to start looking for the scented trackmarks. (We can’t rely on those alone because, unlike the floating scents, they’re much harder to spot at any significant distance.) And younger players may still need additional help to avoid frustration. So we’ve got some work to do on it.

While this new system will make it harder to find prey, we believe there will be more satisfaction in the search as well. These new spawning and scent systems will also factor into decisions about den and homesite selection. And they’ll be especially interesting in regard to rival wolf packs….but that’s a topic for another day.

(And yes, this will be added to the existing game as a free update, and will be incorporated into Tower Fall, which will be available for additional purchase upon release in 2018.)

Putting on the Fur (Developer's Blog)

This week we've made a little video showing how we add the fur to the new wolf. This new wolf and fur effect will be added to the main game in late 2017 and also part of the Tower Fall episode coming in 2018.

https://youtu.be/0cDTdWCmJ00

Fur is one of the most challenging things to create in realtime 3D. Hollywood movies with realistic fur require hours to render each frame, but of course we can't afford that kind of rendering time in a game -- in fact, each frame must render in less than .03 seconds. We've tried just about every fur technique available for the Unity game engine, and in this video I demonstrate the one we've chosen. As you'll see, there is a fine line between fluffy and ridiculous. We're using this same method on the mule deer, though their fur is so short that the effect is especially nice.

We know a lot of our players are artists and animators -- and perhaps future game developers as well -- so we hope you enjoy this video. Let us know if you are interested in seeing more like this!

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.
