Many of them have kids, so I have to push the whole 'parenting' and 'education' spiel on them, and remind them how awesome educational games were back in our day.
I agree, those changes to the description should definitely help. Now it should be clearer as to what kind of game WQ is.

And more good news - #14!

Glad to see WolfQuest is moving up the ranks on Steam! I'll keep spreading the word.

I am unsure if the game is ready for the cynical and sometimes rather entitled audience of Steam. But I will consider voting. It would be a good source for more purchases, and so more funding. If it does get through, I hope that the user reviewers don't tear it apart for... whatever perceived flaws they think it has. I've seen games get completely bashed in reviews for not looking as nice as the reviewers want it to look.

Yes, people can be rather shallow on Steam. But that's hypocritical of them, as lots of games that don't look the best have done really well on Steam (examples: Undertale, Evoland, etc). A game isn't all about graphics...whenever they complain about graphics in the comments it annoys me: I find those types of people are the same types of people who play AAA games and therefore expect all games to look as nice as those. Which is completely unrealistic for indie companies.

With WQ being on steam now, how are sales doing? Are they around expectation?

EDIT: or rather, being on Greenlight. But we are close! And I do agree with the idea suggested earlier of having a more typical gameplay trailer put up. I love the original 2.7 trailer, but it would be nice to have a video just showing in-game hunting, exploring different locations in the maps, fighting predators, etc. Would give people who are intrigued by the game a better look at what it's like and make them more eager to play I think.

Well, on the bright side, our yes-vs-no percentage is improving, so it's probably more of a case of two games just being real popular and rocketing up there, rather than WQ being rated badly.

And...we've been Greenlit!

I'd given up hope for this week, but I guess they decided to accept some more games as a holiday give to us!

That's fantastic news - thanks for updating us on that Dave! Lovely to see that WolfQuest has now been greenlit; I had expected it to happen based on the game's progress on Steam but the question was when exactly it would get greenlit, heh. Thanks everyone who voted! :]
