"Life of a Wolf" - 3D iPhone/iPad game. There's a free version. Gameplay is a bit choppy, but I assume it's still in its early stages of development.

I'm working on revamping this thread to be more organised and informative, but seeing how it is a lot of work I probably won't be very fast :'] I'll keep 'my' list in a spoiler tag on the first post for as long as it is incomplete - as of now it's only in alphabetical order.

However, I tried seperating the games in which you can play as a wolf/something similar to a wolf and added those up to the first post in advance. Any feedback on how it looks? Things I could improve? :x

It looks good so far, Silver. Better than it did before!

You can add 'Okami' to the list of wolf games. I know it isn't a simulator, but you do play as a wolf. And its an amazing game that everybody should play before they die.


You should add Shelter (badgers) and Shelter 2 (lynx) to that list. :)


Another upcoming game where you can play as an animal:

Mesozoica.

Its still in early development (Alpha), but it is very much a real thing. You will be able to play as a dinosaur if you want - trying to break out of the park you created as a fierce carnivore, or live your life in peace as a herbivore.

Thank you! And thanks for catching Okami... Knew I was forgetting one, and can't believe that happened to be the one!

I added the Shelter series to the list I'm working on, so it's there, just without any description/links yet ^^; I'll add Mesozoica as well, cheers!

Dragon's Den
It's very much like Impressive Title (actually a server remaining of the game before it was shut down). In it you can explore around different maps, kill prey and collect items that the prey drops after being killed (no gore or blood). The chat is free but swearing/spamming/bullying will result in ban. It's a great game but unfortunately it's only avaliable for PC. It can be downloaded for Mac using CrossOver but it's very complicated and I couldn't do it without my game having any errors.

Last Moon is much like Dragon's Den, same things only that the maps are different and players must be 13 or older to play.

Has 'Dog's Life' been mentioned here? It was for Playstation 2. I played that game so much as a kid... You play a dog who has to save your lady dog, Daisy, from an evil corporate woman who is gonna turn Daisy into cat food. Eek.

But it was... really fun... It has similar mechanics that Wolfquest has, actually. Same scent tracker style, barking, bowing, peeing... It had some crude humour but it was fun to walk around as a dog.
youll all be glad to know that my soul has undergone some much needed healing after i apologized for the earthquakes which killed thousands.

In Guild Wars 2 you can play as a warbeast cat-like race. They run on all fours if their weapons are stowed and roar and all that cool stuff. You can also use tonics to turn into different animals (wolves, insects, frogs, cats) to mess around in. But you can't fight while using said tonics.

In Divinity: Dragon Commander you can take control of your commander unit and become a dragon with a jetpack to assist your army.

In Primal Carnage: Extinction you can play as a different dinosaurs including raptors, pteras, and rexes. They also have "role play" or "freeroam" servers made for simply running around maps.

In Monster Hunter X (currently not released in the west) you can now hunt as your Palico, which are sapient kitty cats that walk on two legs. They do less damage than regular hunters, but have different skills and 9 lives. In Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate you can't hunt as the cats but they can hunt with you.

I just found out Wolf-Haven exists. xD
Though, I have no account yet, and I don't know if I will like it or not.

Anyone heard of Wolf-Haven, by the way? Cannot find much about the game on these forums.

Wolf-Haven is quite boring in my opinion.....I only played it for an hour and then I quit playing it...

WolfPlay isn't exactly a game where you're put in the eyes of an animal, it's more management than RPG-style. It's a game where you create a wolf pack, starting with creating the alpha male and female, and then you can send them out for hunting, fighting predators, and exploring in general. To get more wolves you can breed the alphas, buy new wolves with their two versions of virtual currency, or even customize a wolf completely by spending apples. Then you can fight other packs, join alliances, roleplay as your wolves, craft relics and appraise them, and a bunch of other stuff.

I used to play Endless Forest! It was a really pretty game, although it got repetitive and kinda boring after a while.

I used to play it. If you like simple browser-based RPGs, it's an okay site.

It's an Ant simulator ;|
