Version 2.5.1 is the free version of the full game. It was developed by Minnesota Zoo and Eduweb, and officially released in October 2011. This release contains the deluxe edition, which introduced time, weather and resting!
This game differs significantly in comparison to its successor. For assistance with this version, refer to the articles under Category:2.5.
This release of WolfQuest contains the full Amethyst Mountain and Slough Creek episodes. In order for it to remain free to download from the website to install and play for free, 2.5.1 is marked as the final full free release of the game, thus it has not received any updates since funding ran out in 2011. Since their return in 2014, Eduweb's development efforts are focused solely on the premium game.
- Main article: Multiplayer (2.5)#Lexicon
As of December 3rd 2015 lexicon was officially disabled in 2.5.1 and below, rendering it defunct (having been completely replaced in later revisions). This decision was met with some backlash as well as pleas to restore it, however, it will not be making a comeback.
Nowadays 2.5.1 multiplayer is quieter than what it once was. Those still looking to use it would be wise to plan ahead of time with friends or to schedule appropriately with other players. Those looking to communicate post-closure are encouraged to either use alternative means (forum private messaging or third party instant messengers) to communicate or upgrade to the premium game to benefit from its improvements and ongoing development.
Players setting up a new session can no longer determine the chat mode their game will use. Instead, the game randomly defaults to phrase or disabled chat.
Version 2.7 and above
Version 2.7 (and newer) is the premium version of the game. You can download and install it for free as a trial/demo, but only the full single player Amethyst Mountain episode is playable in this state. Windows and Mac users only have the option to pay a modest fee to buy everything, due to the limited technical support vendors offer for in-app purchases. For tablet users, there is the option of either buying add-ons separately or buying everything for a modest fee.
All transactions help support the project, the development of the game and its development team.
For your own safety, we also advise against seeking out versions older than 2.5.1. While some screenshots do depict a previous version, we are not permitted to share any installers that were distributed on the WolfQuest website (from past releases) per loboLoco's request. Do not ask.
