Wolfquest

This is a little introduction to the game WolfQuest.

Introduction

WolfQuest is a game developed by the Minnesota Zoo.

In WolfQuest: Amethyst Mountain Deluxe, the first episode of the WolfQuest game, (called WQ for short,) you control a two-year old grey wolf, born in the Yellowstone Park. You can create this wolf yourself, by selecting its name, fur colour, gender, and his stats. (this includes strength, stamina and speed).

Basic Hotkeys

M – the map. This map shows you where you are, elk hunting grounds are, and wolf territories are.

V – Scent view. In scent view modes, you can “see” what you smell. This can be really useful when you are hunting, or when you have low health. Everything has another colour of scent:

Carcass: Purple plume

Female elk: Purple

Bull elk: Dark pink

Hare: Orange

Coyote: Green

Grizzly bear: Blue

Wolf marking: big yellow dot

H – howl. When you have a mate and it doesn’t follow you, just howl and stand still. Your mate will come to you.

Q- run. You will need this when hunting. Its almost impossible to kill an elk while walking.

N – toggles the name bar above the wolves on and off.

X – jump. Not very useful but can be used to jump over carcasses, or just jump over others in multiplayer.

F1 – Screenshot. I’ve used this for all the pictures expect the two-headed elk.

Single Player mode.

The “Quest” part of this game is to find a mate. To do this, you need to go to the three wolf territories on the map. There are three “enemy” packs: Druid, Slough and Specimen. These packs are based on real packs in Yellowstone. When you have visited all three of them, you can look for dispersal wolves in the territories. If this wolf is the other gender, you can try to become the mate of him/her. After this, there is nothing much to do left in the Singe Player mode, expect hunting or exploring with your new mate.

Multiplayer mode

NOTE: to play a multiplayer mode you need either a WolfQuest forum account or a password from a private game.

In multiplayer mode, you can join games of other WolfQuest players. The pack leader chooses the amount of wolves that can join (up to 5). The multiplayer mode has a little more features:

  • - Pack chat. With this you can chat with the other pack members.
  • - Rally. When someone howls, and all wolves are standing together, a rally will begin. with your pack you need to fill the little blue bar that shows up. When its full everyone gets a +3 strength bonus.
  • - Play bow and wag tail. These are just two little emotes. 

Glitches

WolfQuest has a few glitches, too. Here a small list of glitches I know.

- Rock glitch. There are some rocks on the map, but when you jump, you get “inside” them.

- Walking howl glitch. When you jump and howl, you can walk around howling.

- Two-headed Elk. Sometimes are there two carcasses lying on the same place. When you are eating, it looks like a two headed elk.

You can also download the game here. The second episode of WolfQuest, named Slough Creek, will come out in spring this year. This episode will be based on raising pups.

    Short11 we get the point. You hate waiting. But you don’t got to spam. I don’t like the waiting either, and I’m really curious about Episode 2 and I agree with SnoepieTheRaabbit on this.

    Nice article by the way.

    Gosh.. I feel like i’ve been waiting for episode two for 2 years! i can’t wait but still, the longer they make it the better it will become!

  23. Posted September 26, 2009 at 11:51 am

    The current release date is estimated in November, guys. Keep your ears up and check the forums for updates =D

  24. Posted September 28, 2009 at 1:57 pm

    Well, if you discovered wolf quest only, maybe like, just a few months before the second episode was released, like me, you don’t have to wait to long. I have only played wolf quest for about a month.

  25. Posted September 28, 2009 at 2:00 pm

    Also, when you downloaded Wolf quest it has an option for sending any news and/or updates to your hot mail address, so it won’t be released without you knowing it!
