WolfQuest 2.5 Contest Results!
While many of you may have been keeping up with the latest information about the WolfQuest Design Contest on the forum, here are the final results.
After more than 900 contest entries were received and well over 500 people voted in the polls, the Grand Prize winner has been decided! Exiah will be flown out to Minnesota to meet with the WolfQuest Development Team, including top wolf experts David Mech and Dan MacNulty, to help decide how to implement her idea for Weather and Time into the game. Cama submitted the winning idea from the Game Enhancements category of the contest: the ability to sit and lie down by the push of a button, regaining stamina much quicker than just standing and waiting. These ideas will both be put into Episode 2.5, which we'll start working on after our WolfQuest Development Team meeting with Exiah.
Along with the winning contest submissions, we also had fifteen other finalists who submitted excellent ideas for Episode 2.5. If funding remains after the two winning ideas are implemented into the game, we may try to also include some of the simpler ideas into 2.5. Congratulations to all the finalists!
