Whoa... I've been a Wolf Quest fan ever since 2013. And I had never thought that Wolf Quest would come back, and make 2.7. And when that happened, I was so shocked and so excited! Now, seeing "Ep. 3: Tower Fall" coming out, and the new wolf designs, fur effects, animations, emotes, etc. (which I'm just dying to get my hands on, heh) I have hope yet again for Wolf Quest. You guys have put so much effort, work, and energy into these new upcoming episodes, and I'm so thankful that you are taking the time to post, and do videos like this for us. I always love seeing behind-the-scenes videos like these. Also, I'd love to see y'all do one on how you form the terrain, perhaps!

The WolfQuest Community is cheering for y'all! Keep it up, and know we have your back.

I have to agree about Dave's voice and narration being really nice.
Thanks for sharing this!

Seconded, and I'm also curious to see how the terrains are made.

The height map seriously improves the appearance of the fur, it looks fantastic. I can't wait to see the fur on the moving wolf models. The gradient from the thinner fur to the thicker fur could be more gradual, though. Is it possible to create the fur in 'chunks', similar to locks of human hair, to give it a more natural, less frizzy appearance?

Agreed. Is this possible? I'd love to see more of a gruff appearance rather than fur that just sticks straight up. Something that goes at an angle almost and follows natural growth patterns (if at all possible)

Um...would these new updates on fur and color affect the wolves that we had saved? But I think you guys did a great job so far.

I don't think it would. The colour doesn't change, just the fur texture.

I thought when he made the fur super big and spikey was really funny. Man, this is cool. :D I love it how realistic you guys are going. And now, the game is pretty good. I was shocked in an earlier post that you said that everything is going to be better. Everything is already better than most games. You've just got to beat the graphics to Skyrim now!

I must ask, do you guys still know the exact date that the new fur will be released? You mentioned late 2017 which is kind of getting too. Just curious so I don't go in one day and get surprised to see my wolves looking different. That will be something neat to see.

It will be released along with the rest of WolfQuest 3. The exact date is not known, but the WolfQuest team is estimating sometime in early 2018.
