April Fool's Day 2012

Edit: Happy April Fool's Day! This was a joke! The words 'wolf', 'wolves', 'WolfQuest', and 'WQ' was changed in the filter to say 'squirrels' instead, but it has been changed back now. Thanks to everyone who played along, and sorry about bringing in potential new funders as part of the joke.

Hello! So I have some great news to share with you, and even though it comes with a little bad news as well, I still think overall it's great news:
We have a new major funder for the project! We had mentioned before that we don't have any more major funding for making new games, but one finally came through! We now have enough funding to create three brand new episodes!

But...now onto the sort of bad news. The funder is the American Society for the Preservation of Squirrels, and since dog relatives are a huge predator source for squirrels, they're having us make a completely new game about squirrels in Yellowstone and two other sites, but they'd prefer we no longer talk about any dog relatives on the forums anymore. So starting today, all discussion about dog relatives needs to be squirrel-related instead. I'll work on changing the forum names and logos as soon as I can... most of the graphic stuff will have to be done by our webmaster on Monday.

So, it's exciting news but a huge change... I hope you all enjoy it!

A big funder seems like reason enough to make WolfQuest go nuts! ;D

It'll be an interesting change to squirrels, but I'm sure SquirrelQuest will be lots of fun! xD

Great news about the funding! This is what WolfQuest needs. ^^
But I suppose squirrels sounds fun. This will be an interesting change, but hopefully the community enjoys it. :)

Bad news? Nonsense! This is all good news! Enough for three new episodes?! Woah! Squirrels deserve the utmost respect, for brining us canid lovers to our senses.

@ Rustic; I'm wondering the same thing

But if it's not a April Fools joke than good to hear than SQ has more funding! Should be interesting playing Squirrel Quest

"SquirrelQuest", eh?

Doesn't sound nearly as good or as interesting as WolfQuest... Bah, such a sad day for the wolfs (nice filtering Cana! :twisted:) in Yellowstone, though I suspect the elk will be satisfied with this news... ;)
