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.

Buy-all

A buy-all option will be present for both tablet and Mac/Win users. Interested members may also opt to leave a tip of their choosing for the WolfQuest Team -- all proceeds go back into furthering game development, even opening the doors to the possibility of new episodes in the future.

The base price for a buy-all is $10.

Tablet users may opt to purchase only those features they would be interested in; the individual prices of each add-on is displayed above and within sub-articles. Computer users do not have this option and would have to pay the specified price (or its equivalent when converted into other currencies) due to technical complications.


Trivia

  • The in-dev reveal of the Blacktail Deer Plateau pack is erroneously titled Blackfoot Deer Plateau.
