Thanksgiving is, at its very best, a time to pause to think about what we are thankful. We know a lot of WolfQuest players don’t have Thanksgiving as a holiday in their countries, but we would still like to share our thanks with you this week.

We are thankful for:
* Ten years of WolfQuest! It is remarkable that the game has persisted and we are able to keep improving and expanding it. Thank you to everyone for supporting WolfQuest!

* Our dedicated and enthusiastic players! Without you, WolfQuest would not be possible. We especially appreciate all the supportive and constructive comments we hear.  Your thoughtful input is always considered and helps shape the game. Also, someone makes us smile every day, which is essential to our perseverance.  

* Our talented WolfQuest team. We are thankful to work with such creative and dedicated folks.

* Those incredible gray wolves and all the creatures in their wild world. They make WolfQuest endlessly interesting to create and, hopefully, fun to play.

* Yellowstone National Park and all the conservation efforts that help ensure wolves continue to thrive in the real world too. We are thankful for parks and wild places. We hope all of you get to experience the call of the wild!

*  Finally, we are thankful for the resources and advances in technology that allow us to keep making WolfQuest more realistic and beautiful. Like this tasty new elk carcass!

Tasty elk! Tastes like chicken, or should I say turkey? Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I’m thankful for all the hard work you put into this great game!

Aww, thanks! That was kinda cute... the four wolves in front of a big, thanksgiving elk instead of a turkey.
Well, besides the amazing game WolfQuest and a good computer to play it with, I'm thankful I have a house -think of the homeless that have to sleep in the frosty grass of winter.
I'm also thankful I have a good family. :D

...And that I could find this game. :wolf: :P

Happy Thanksgiving. I can't believe WolfQuest is still kicking after all these years. Once funding ran out, I've never once imagined WolfQuest would get a second wind, that there was going to be an episode 3, and the game was going to be practically remade with the Anniversary Edition. I am thankful for all the folks at Eduweb for taking a risk to continue the project, and of course I am thankful for our community who has still remained loyal to WolfQuest after all these years. <3

Oh my goodness, look at those friendly faces! Those models are beautiful!

I'm so thankful for the production of Wolfquest 3, alongside the success of the reintroduction of Wolves to Yellowstone.

Happy late Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it!

I wanted to add that the nature of WQ makes it more important than a lot of other video games, since it depicts real life animal behaviour and ecology. It encourages young people to empathise with animals (they're families, like we are), it promotes responsibility through the storyline, and lets you re-create amazing events which go unseen in the wild, including those which have never been documented before but are still theoretically possible. I really hope that WQ doesn't end anytime soon, and that we can get to see an episode 4 or 5, and I am very happy that such a cool team is working on a game as important as this! :)

Hoh. The faces of the wolves definitely look different. I'd love to see a close up comparison of them with the old model's face at some point to see what truly has changed and what's stayed the same.

Wow! I can’t believe I’m so late to the party but man oh man, those are some smooth animations and pretty neat models. Heart eyes all around. Happy belated Thanksgiving to all who celebrate! Hopefully you ate even half as good as our wolf pals here. :)
