The results for the 2.5 Design Contest are in!

Post by WQ Coordinator » Mon Jul 12, 2010 11:07 am

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2.5 Design Contest- with over 900 contest entries and well over 500 people voting in the polls, this has been, by far, the biggest contest we’ve ever created, and has been really exciting for all involved.

Your votes have determined the Grand Prize Winner- Exiah, with her description for Weather and Time. She and a guardian will receive a free trip to Minnesota to meet with the WolfQuest Development Team to decide how to best implement her ideas into WolfQuest version 2.5. Congratulations, Exiah!

Also, congratulations to all the finalists! Each finalist will receive a WolfQuest patch. Following are the usernames associated with each of the Big Ideas- feel free to congratulate them all in this topic, rather than overwhelming them with PMs and e-mails.
  • •Bison- Kivia
    •Cougars- Frodo1
    •Multiplayer Should Be More Like Single Player- ara-tun
    •Pup or Full Grown- NorthernBound
The Game Enhancements winner has also been decided: I need a Rest, submitted by Cama! The other two top Game Enhancement finalists will receive a WolfQuest t-shirt. Congratulations, ara-tun (for the Calves and Cubs idea) and breannakristine (for the Pups/Dens idea). The finalists from the previous poll (who responded to the e-mail with their address) will all receive a WolfQuest embroidered patch. Following are the remaining usernames associated with each of the Game Enhancements- feel free to congratulate them all in this topic, rather than overwhelming them with PMs and e-mails.
  • •Brave Bear- Mistystar96
    •Chatbox Removed!- Asheek
    •Deleting games- Darkfurbp
    •Elk Fatigue- Firehero
    •Food Conversion- Hermione Granger
    •Goals/Achievements- wolf567
    •Sneaky Wolves- wookie99
    •Stalking Adjustment- chickiefoo
    •Take Control of Your Chat- Aurora9599
Original Message:
What about the Game Enhancements finalists? Well, after much discussion, we’ve decided to have a follow-up poll for the Game Enhancements. Because everyone voted on three of their favorites, we want to give everyone one last chance to choose their ultimate favorite idea, out of the top ideas decided by the last poll. We also discussed the implementation of what had been the top idea in the Game Enhancements poll, and we feel that, with the available funding we’d realistically have leftover from the Weather and Time idea, choosing between calves or cubs would be a better way to spend the money. Rather than adding both calves and cubs but not being able to implement them as well as we’d like, we thought it would be better to allow one of these choices to really affect gameplay, assuming one of these options is still the top choice. So, starting Tuesday, we will hold another poll and everyone will have one last chance to vote on their favorite Game Enhancement out of these choices:
  • •Calves
    •Cubs
    •I Need a Rest
    •Pups/Dens
After this new poll has ended, the usernames for the Game Enhancements finalists will be revealed. Each of the finalists in this second poll (who kept their identity a secret until officially announced) will receive one WolfQuest t-shirt, and the finalists with the top idea will receive two WolfQuest t-shirts. Each of the other finalists in the Game Enhancements category (who responded to the congratulatory e-mail) will receive a WolfQuest patch.
You may now comment on both the Big Ideas and Game Enhancement suggestions. There are no estimate release dates for Episode 2.5 at this point. Remember, Exiah will be in Minnesota in early September to discuss her idea, so the idea needs to be developed and implemented into the game and the bugs worked out before the game will be released. So please be patient. Also, while we know we can only include the winning idea in the Big Ideas category, if there is funding available, we may be able to add more Game Enhancements than just the winning idea. Which additional Game Enhancements would be determined by funding and programming time/difficulty, not by an extra poll.
Thanks for the avatar, Silverness!

Now that weather and time will be added in the next update, I'm probably not going to play WQ until then. xD i will warp my memories of how to master this game and then start anew with the weather and time added.

Congrats Exiah for winning!

Congrats to Kivia, frodo, ara-tun, and NorthernBound. Your ideas were very descriptive and made it very difficult to decide my vote!

Time to await for the poll for the next part. :3
