Some Things That Are Not Coming to WolfQuest 3

Believe it or not, we’ve pretty much fixed all the IK (inverse kinematics) issues that provided such hilarity in past blooper videos, but that’s not to say everyone and everything in the game always behaves itself. Here are some bugs that made us chuckle lately — but I’m happy to say that all of these are now fixed. We still have a long list of bugs to do (generally less entertaining than these), along with secondary features and a lot of testing and tweaking before the game is ready for Early Access release. But we’re getting there!

__When?
We are getting closer to releasing the first episode, Amethyst Mountain, for PC/Mac on Steam and itch.io, as Early Access. That will be followed by Slough Creek some months later, followed by the mobile versions. We’ll then resume development of the next episode, Tower Fall

___How much will WQ3 cost?
WolfQuest 3 will be a free update to players who own WolfQuest 2.7.  If you are buying WQ 3 for the first time, the cost will be more than the current game 2.7 (so it's cheaper to purchase it now and get WQ 3 as a free update). The Tower Fall expansion will be an in-game purchase (DLC).

___Will WQ3 be available on mobile?
WolfQuest is available for Mac, Windows, iPhone, iPad, Android & Kindle. So yes, WolfQuest 3 will be available for mobile phones and tablets...at least some of them, and/or in some form. Bigger maps and more animals may be too much for mobile devices with limited RAM memory. We'll do our best, but some low-end mobile devices will not be powerful enough to run the game. We will keep WolfQuest 2.7 (the current game) available as well (for both computers and mobile).

Oh dear... I have no words for the bendy trees. The elk running/laying down just made me smile it was beautiful while it lasted. I liked the night one, that elk and wolf were like brothers with how chill they were. The wolf with it's tail up simply thought it was a boss, and it wasn't wrong. The loop trees... Either Alice in Wonderland like or just fever dream weird, I can't decide which. Thankfully these are fixed XD

The lying down elk was great. I liked the bending tree. The night scene was pretty nice. Keep up the good work.

Love the bendy trees, and the way they started to turn in circles near the end. You could just change the scenery and add severe weather effects, and say it is a hurricane, or a tornado for the fun of it! :lol: Wolves were getting way to friendly with elk, predator and prey relationship ruined! :D And apparently the elk needs no effort to get away from the wolf, as it doesn't even have to get up, just slides away at 75 miles per hour. :lol: Ok, I'm done making bad jokes on these hilarious glitches and bugs now, though I am still laughing! :lol:

When I saw the title, I really thought this was gonna be some sort of bad news/tempered expectations announcement. Needless to say, this was a nice surprise! I'm a fan of the crazy trees tbh!

I went into this video thinking some things were going to be cut :cry: Instead I couldn't help laughing at that sliding elk glitch. The night scene was funny and beautiful at the same time. It looked so peaceful.

Oh no... The elk have figured out how to domesticate wolves. What will they discover next? Farming?

Also, great choice of music! It went really well with the glitches haha. I'm almost disappointed those trees won't be in WQ3. Almost :wink:

Lol the bendy/dancing trees are my favorite! Also, the music was so perfect for this video.

You mean we won't be able to dance with the trees? Darn, haha.

In all seriousness, I'm happy with the progress. Can't wait to explore those not-so-bendy trees.

I'm mostly excited about how big the map is gonna actually be. I've watched your measurements on one of the older videos so I.g I'll be busier checking every ounce of amethyst mountain haha

Spoods, please stop making blood offerings. I know a portal-tree when I see one. >:(

Joking aside, I do wish it were possible to keep some of these gems... cheat codes to enable pls.

We need a new map dedicated to the best bugs - a special place where the trees are crazy, the elk slide and every moose is floppy.

On a more serious note, encountering bugs all the time must get very tedious, so it's nice to see that some of them can provide a bit of entertainment.
