Wow, this is amazing news! Thank you! I was beginning to worry my old Kindle tablet wouldn't be able to handle it, so it makes me very happy that WQ 2.7 is being released on Mac/Windows as well!

As for the distribution...you don't have to stick with one distributor. Not sure how it works, but I've seen the same game on GOG, Steam, etc. I think Steam and GOG have the larger market shares, but you have to figure out how much of a cut they take from the game sales...because I'm sure it must be a lot?

Will beta testing be needed for the computer version?

I mean I recently paid $10 for Baldur's Gate 2 in Iphone, if they can do it I'm sure Wolfquest can...and i would be mote than willing to pay!

By the way how much longer for Windows version after the tablet one comes out?


If you look at the "Status of Things" topic, that gives you an estimate of how things would go for the Window/Mac version. It'll be on the front post :)

This is epic news! I eagerly await WolfQuest's return! (and I'm sure my parents won't mind me paying for some stuff, granted that it's going to support WQ! :D)

I'm so happy,thank you guys for letting me play my childhood game XD It's really amazing :D
Will this PC improved version be avaible in other country values? Like Polish zlotych? If not,that's ok,i think i could tell my parents and they would help me with swapping zlotych to euro or dollars ( we didn't do this before but oh well )

    Hmm, this will depend on the distribution services that are used to offer the game. Those are to be determined, but once they are known, you could probably find out on the websites of the distributors themselves!

I'd guess 2-3 months. Mainly we'll have to do two things: Improve the 3D environments so people don't complain about the circa-2007 graphics; and make arrangements to sell the game on distribution portals. I may start the latter soon, but I don't know how long those processes take.

I'll be looking at the usual suspects -- Steam, GOG, Desura, and Amazon. If any of those are better for those of you outside the United States, please note that in this forum.

Do you think perhaps the new pc game could be sold as well on the Mac App Store and windows app stores? Just a suggestion as that may encourage more people to buy wolfquest.

If WolfQuest goes on Amazon it will definitely get noticed. People are looking for Wolf games all the time, they are always in the trending lists.

Yes! Amazon would be nice. I don't want to have to get a Steam to play WolfQuest; my parents hate Steam with a passion. I'm not sure why. I see Amazon reaching the intended audience, however. More parents might find it that way, and Amazon has a wide variety of family geared apps already. I see Steam just adding to our inappropriate community (not saying that Steam/older users are inherently bad, but I feel that adding it on Steam would attract internet trolls).

I definitely agree that steam would have the potential to add a whole lot of trolls. I also see Amazon providing a wider audience than just the gamers that steam would bring in.

Completely agreed. Amazon is a worldwide company, if you made it eligible for Amazon Prime I think WQ will fare even better on Amazon. With all the wolfaboos out there on Amazon it shouldn't be hard drawing them in. I think this is going to be a big time success! :D

As a Canadian, I'm not sure if Amazon sells us games...atleast, not in the way Steam does. It would be a good idea to look at more than one distributor, if you can.

GOG and/or Steam would be fine for me. Humble Bundle is also another good one to try.

There is always the potential for trolls. Anywhere. If the multiplayer phrased chat is implemented, then I really don't see a problem.
