With this burst of sales, we've begun work on the next round of game improvements, which I expect to release in two (free) updates, hopefully in June and August. No specifics to announce yet, but some really great stuff I assure you.


Good to hear, Dave!

Yes! Yes! It's posts like these that grant me happiness! I cannot wait for these updates! I hope the sales continue to flow throughout the year.

This is great news! I'm glad sales have been good enough for two updates. I'm surprised at have big a market Steam has become, but I guess people are really into that platform.

Agreed, putting WolfQuest on Steam opens it up to a much larger group of people. There are plenty of YouTubers that have over a million subscribers who play "random" games (PewDiePie, I'm looking at you). If they stumble upon the game and decide it's worth a shot, imagine how many people are going to get the demo and purchase the game afterwards!



If PewDiePie or Markiplier picked it up that would be a huge jump for WolfQuest! They are two of YouTube's most popular and beloved gaming personalities, and have many people keeping tab on their videos. I remember that iHasCupQuake played WQ 2.5 last year and I saw a spike in new users each day after. Like I said, many popular webstars use Steam to find games to play. It just seemed to become game central after FNAF was released, so I have high hopes for WQ that this will be it's big break. Many people on the internet love wolves, and if a popular YouTuber endorses the game sales will likely skyrocket! But they already took off I see as Dave posted, can't wait for any future updates!

Seems like Steam was a great decision! I'm so happy to hear about the sales. And wow, 2 big updates?! I was so surprised reading that! My reaction literally was this: : O
Celestial-Howl is right. If a big youtube would get it, the game would get so popular. That would be really, REALLY cool. (The forums would get quite crowded though. ;p)

That's wonderful news, Dave! It's nice that Steam has contributed nicely to WQ sales and the fact that things are decent enough for two free updates makes it even better. :]

I'm so proud of you all at Eduweb! I hope you'll consider possibly putting other Eduweb games up via Steam in the future! I passed the word along to Cana, too.

I think the Steam release had a positive effect on spreading the word about WolfQuest.
I went on YouTube and I saw some YouTubers with 10,000+ subscribers playing WolfQuest and telling their subscribers that they should get the game as well. I'm really happy to see that the game is becoming more popular!

I purchased the game on this page so does that mean I can't get it on steam?
also for some reason I cannot play on multiplayer, it says I need to buy it again :/

The first post of this thread explains how to get a Steam key.

You need to register and log into your account in the game in order to play Multiplayer.
