WolfQuest: Survival of the Pack ++ | 125 MB
This version, 2.0.3, released on March 11, 2010, is a minor update with improved chat safeguards. It includes both episodes: Amethyst Mountain and Slough Creek.
WolfQuest Game: WolfQuest is an immersive, 3D wildlife simulation game that lets players learn about wolf ecology by living the life of a wild wolf in Yellowstone National Park. Players play alone or with up to four friends in on-line multiplayer games. In Episode 1: Amethyst Mountain players explore the wilderness, hunt elk, and encounter stranger wolves in a quest to find a mate. The new release features episode 2: Slough Creek in which players find a den, establish a territory, raise pups and defend them from predators such as coyotes, grizzly bears and other stranger wolves.
Live the life of a wild wolf in Yellowstone National Park, learning how to survive in the wild, finding a mate, and raising a family.
In Episode 1: Amethyst Mountain:
Create your wolf avatar, selecting male or female, choosing from a range of realistic wolf coats (and customizing the coat with color tints), and configuring its abilities (strength, speed, and stamina).
Explore four square kilometers of alpine wilderness on the slopes of Amethyst Mountain in Yellowstone National Park, running across open meadows, through dense fir forests, and along sheer cliffs. (Amethyst Mountain is in the Northern Range of Yellowstone National Park, overlooking the Lamar Valley, where wolves were first reintroduced to the park in 1996. See it in Google Maps!)
Hunt elk. Follow scent trails to locate elk herds, then sneak up on the herd, find the weakest one, and begin your attack. Pursue your prey and sap its strength while dodging its counterattacks, to make the kill.
Harrass grizzly bears and coyotes who try to eat elk carcasses, or just for the fun of it.
Follow scent trails to find stranger wolves. Communicate with them through wolf vocalizations and behaviors.
Find a mate and establish a bond.
In Episode 2: Slough Creek:
Explore Slough Creek, four more square kilometers of river, meadow and mountains near the northern boundary of Yellowstone National Park, east of Mammoth. (See it in Google Maps!)
Select a safe den site.
Establish and maintain your territory with raised-leg urination and howling.
Raise your pups: train them, feed them, and protect them from coyotes, grizzly bears, and other predators.
Hunt elk and other animals as opportunities arise.
Keep your pups alive!
Form a pack with 2-5 players in public or private multiplayer sessions.
Explore the worlds of Amethyst Mountain or Slough Creek together, hunting elk and chasing coyotes.
Chat with other players with an in-game safe chat system, limited to common English words. (If you see inappropriate behavior in a multiplayer chat, please report it to us.)
Work as a team to bring down a powerfull bull elk.
