New version: 2.7 for tablet -- and Mac/Windows!

Postby loboLoco » Sat Apr 25, 2015 4:12 pm

I'm delighted to finally announce our latest plans for the new version of WolfQuest (hereby called 2.7). The new version will have so many improvements and additions that it'd be a shame to restrict it to tablets. So it's official: we're bringing the new version to Mac and Windows as well. (We're not ruling out phones, but there are challenges with small screen size that we haven't looked into yet.)

For specifics, please see the FAQs: http://www.wolfquest.org/bb/viewforum.php?f=81

Other notes:

We'll aim to release it as soon as we can after the tablet version is released this summer. It might be a few months, depending on how much we improve the 3D environments for modern computers.

Pricing will be roughly comparable to the tablet version, though we haven't decided exactly how to structure the pricing (fremium plus IAP, or paid), as is the distribution service (Steam, Amazon, Desura, GOG, etc.).

The original free version of the game will remain available, but some or all multiplayer modes will be disabled by then, if not sooner.

Oh, and why 2.7? Well, it's not "WolfQuest 3" since there is not a proper third episode, so we finally decided that 2.7 sounds better than "WolfQuest: New and Improved."

Well, this is quite exciting!

Glad that I won't have to go and drop $200+ on a tablet just to play the game!

I should probably go and replay the game again XP

It's great to see that the computer versions have a more solid future ahead of them! Thank you for sharing, Dave. ^^ I am very hopeful for Steam, though gaining support from their community may be a challenge if Greenlight is essential, in which case, I wish you all the best of luck getting it successfully Greenlit!

Hopefully WolfQuest can keep on howling~

Perhaps there should be another newsletter, just this time. Neamara told me that it crashed the servers last time but the site is on a new one now so it might work. It would certainly bring back some members from the past.

Huh, that's a good idea. I agree that it would be worth a try, just this once.

Maybe, but let's not crash the servers!

This is very wonderful news, Dave. Thank you!

I'd support a newsletter if the current server is deemed stable enough to manage the workload. If it is, then the problem from there would be whether or not the newsletter software supports over 750,000 members. So it's a bit of a gamble; if the team goes ahead with it, hopefully the risk pays off!

Once the new version is released, I'll definitely figure out a way to send out a newsletter without crashing the servers.
