Trivia

  • WolfQuest was distributed on the wolfquest.org website from its release up until November 2015, when version 2.7 first launched on the Itch.io storefront.
    • The old free version, 2.5.1, is still distributed via wolfquest.org, though it was released in October 2011 and remains outdated, having had its development discontinued during the same year due to funding resources running out and no longer being sought after.
      • By keeping the old 2011 game free, it will not cost money to purchase nor will it cost money to continue developing out-of-pocket.
