New Game Accounts
Posted: Thu Aug 13, 2020 2:53 pm
Along with multiplayer, we've been working on the new game account system for WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition. This uses the same account system as WolfQuest 2.7, but it's separate so players can have an account for each game.
The new account system just about ready to release to give everyone extra time to set up their WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition account. So today's devblog takes a brief (hopefully not too boring) look at the new account system and how to go about signing up once it’s released.
We heard loud and clear that many players will want to keep their username from the original game, WolfQuest 2.7. So, each WQ 2.7 username is reserved for that player! They can use that same username and password when creating a new account for WQ:AE.
If you don't have an old account, or simply want to start fresh, you can do that instead and create a brand new account. Just remember: You won't be able to choose a username that someone has already claimed in WQ 2.7. At some point in the future we will likely remove that restriction, but not until the game is released on all platforms.
In this new account system, we have friends and messages working now, and will add packs soon, since those will be helpful for multiplayer. Later this fall we will release the new achievements system.
The new account system will be included in the next game patch, v.1.0.4a, which we expect to release within a week! We want to get this out into everyone's hands so players have a chance to create a new account before multiplayer is released.

We have released the first episode of WolfQuest 3: Anniversary Edition (Amethyst Mountain) and the Lost River Classic map for PC/Mac on Steam and itch.io, as Early Access. While in Early Access, we are updating the game frequently with more features, multiplayer, and ultimately the Slough Creek episode with pups. The mobile version will come after the game is completed on PC/Mac platforms. We’ll then resume development of the next episode, Tower Fall (DLC).
