InformationEdit

WolfQuest has been available on the Windows operating system since its demo release. The game utilises the Unity 3D engine and was developed by Eduweb and Minnesota Zoo. Players take control of a two-year-old dispersal grey wolf in Yellowstone National Park with the goal of finding a mate, claiming a den to call home, giving birth to pups and establishing a pack of their own while encountering other wolves, engaging (or avoiding) predators, scavenging or hunting prey and trying to survive. The game is intended to be realistic with its portrayal of wolf ecology.

It is free to download from the WolfQuest website -- the installer is a 214MB .MSI file. The current version is 2.5.1 and includes Amethyst Mountain, Survival of the Pack, single player and multiplayer.
