For basic avatar customization options, see Player.
For additional customization options, see Player/Customization.

In-App Purchases (or IAP) are optional add-ons that can be purchased to enhance gameplay experience aesthetically, or beneficially, depending on the developer. Costs of add-on content are typically determined by development time, expenses on the developer's part and quality. 

The mobile version features an in-app store displayed on the splash screen. This option is absent in the computer versions, with the full game (with all add-on content included) being purchasable.

I'm taking a fresh look at the customization possibilities, since we know it's very important to players. I really would like to offer some nice new customization options -- but since these will take additional development effort, we'd make them into packs for in-app purchases. Generally pretty cheap per pack -- $1-$3 (though I have an idea for one that would be more special and expensive).

I do want them to hew to realism and in-game suitability. The latter means that wolf body sizes can't vary much (since that has implications for elk-biting and other things), and I don't think the personality thing fits in the customization scheme.

We can definitely have a much greater variety of coat colors/patterns. I'm hoping to have eye color, though we need to do some work to make sure it'll work on iPad 2 (that being the lowest-power tablet that the game will run on). I'd like to have several different howls to choose from. I would like to improve the tint slider as Shusuke suggests, but there are some technical limitations that may prevent that.

I've been looking for photos of scars and other distinguishing marks on wolves, particularly Yellowstone wolves, but can't find much. So if anyone can find good reference photos showing such things, please link to them here, and we'll take a look. We'd prefer to stick with Yellowstone wolves, but any wolf subspecies would be helpful. Dogs and hybrids, not so much, unless you can find some mention of a similar thing on a wild wolf.


All customizations are purely cosmetic and boast no perks or benefits over other players in-game. Please use a currency converter to get a rough idea of how much American dollars translate to your country's currency.

Players can opt to buy two packages separately or in a $10.00 USD buy-all.

  • The "complete game" package, which includes the second episode, multiplayer and Lost River - costs $-.-- USD.
  • The "extra customizations" page - includes coat and body customizations - costs $-.-- USD.


This gallery is subject to change at any time. Files may be superseded by new screenshots at any time, whether by editors or WolfQuest Team Members to better showcase the customization and improve the article. New sub-sections will be added as-needed.
