The status of things

Here's what I can say about the status of various aspects of WolfQuest:

1) The new 2.7 version of the game (for tablets first, then Mac/Windows) is in development, with bugfixes and a number of improvements and expansions. We expect to release that this summer (July-August). We are funding this internally, so are counting on app sales to make back our investment. Should 2.7 be a big success, we will use those revenues to expand the game, possibly even another episode, though that would require very strong sales.

2) The original version of the game (v2.5) will remain available as a free download, for those unable to pay for the new version, but it will not be updated--and we will shut down lexicon chat in multiplayer as we roll out version 2.7.

3) We fully plan to keep the forum going indefinitely.

(Edited to include new plans for Mac/Win version.)

If the forum shuts down, will private message still be available?

If the forum shuts down, you won't even be able to log in, sadly.

We would lock the forum threads. (You'd still be able to register in order to play multiplayer with Phrase Chat.) I don't know about private messages, we'd have to look into that.

It is always good to have some things clarified so thanks for providing what information you can, Dave. Hopefully the forum will be able to continue on...with all the features it currently has now..and it won't become read only and all that stuff. I'm sure the app will be totally awesome and many people will really enjoy playing it..and appreciate all the hard work that was/will be put behind it. ^^

Thank you for telling us this. It saddens me that the MP abuse has gone to planning to delete it altogether, but hey, what would we do?

I do believe anything on the App store can be downloaded to any Apple device. However, because the iPhone is a lot smaller than the iPad (and this version is intended for iPad), I don't know how well it will run on the iPhone.

Depends on the resolution and size of the game. They make special iPad versions of games that are only available on iPad, and there are a lot of apps not supported on iPhone because of the size.

I was beginning to think WQ would be completely gone by now. This update sure clears things up a lot for my. I''m also glad to see MP is not going to totally disappear. I would be fine with Phase Chat. Thanks for the update WQ, it really helps a lot. :)

We currently don't know if the forum will be shut down or if we'll be able to keep it up for the tablet version of the game, so it may not end up shutting down. You may not have to worry about it, though like I said we don't know what'll happen with the forum right now.

I don't think it should be shut down. After all, with the tablet game coming out I'm sure activity will boost.
