Eduweb is one of two developers for the game WolfQuest, known for their award-winning range of educational games, with the WolfQuest project being among the successful games in their portfolio.

Game creation and development, including the 3D models, animation, coding and all other associated tasks relating to the game were fulfilled by Eduweb. Some third party assets were used and are fairly credited to their rightful authors. Eduweb are responsible for grant writing[citation needed] to the National Science Foundation and receiving money that was used to develop WolfQuest. This makes the project the first educational videogame to be developed using NSF funding.

Other sources of funding used to further development included donations from BestBuy, charities and other organizations[2].


Beyond 2013

Following the announcement(s) made during December 2012, Minnesota Zoo is no longer contributing towards the WolfQuest project by seeking money to be allocated as funding towards game development and maintenance costs[citation needed] as it did in the past.

To date, Kristie is the only admin located at MN Zoo who is still involved with the project, though her activity is far more sporadic than that of her predecessors.

Phase 2 originally involved closure of the forums as well as seeing the removal of the multiplayer chat lexicon option. As of 2014, little over a year after these announcements, Eduweb announced plans to make a tablet version of the game and have since managed to convince MN Zoo to allow the forums to remain open. While phase 2 will inevitably happen, it will now only affect the lexicon option. The forums will remain open to provide support and discussion for the new version of the game.
