Live the life of a wild wolf!

A game about wolf ecology in Yellowstone National Park

You are a young gray wolf. Born in the Northern Range of Yellowstone National Park, you learned the ways of the wolf in your family pack. Now you're are venturing out on your own to explore, hunt, find a mate, establish territory, and raise your own family.

Embark on a quest for survival

Your quest begins on the slopes of Amethyst Mountain. Here you must test your hunting skills against elk, moose, and mule deer. Once you're a skilled hunter, you can seek out another wolf to become your mate.

Then you'll venture together to Slough Creek, cutting through the mountains north of the Lamar Valley, to establish a territory and den site. Here you will raise a litter of pups: training them, feeding them, defending them against the competition, and finally taking them on a cross-country journey to a summer home.

Can your little family pack succeed?

Experience Yellowstone

Explore WolfQuest's realistic recreation of the Northern Range of Yellowstone National Park — "the Serengeti of North America" — where herds of elk and other ungulates roam the sagebrush steppe grasslands, alpine forests, and magnificent high ridges.

But watch out for packs of stranger wolves, who patrol their territories and don't look kindly on intruders. The wilderness brims with other dangers too — grizzly bears, cougars, and coyotes — who all vie with you for territory and food.

Play WolfQuest alone or with friends!

In single-player games, learn how to hunt, communicate with other wolves, find a mate, establish a den and territory, raise pups, and embark on a perilous journey to a summering site.

In multiplayer games, join together as a pack to explore the wilderness, hunt, raise pups, and travel to the rendezvous site together. There are two types of multiplayer games:

  • Private games: Invite-only, featuring voice, text, and phrase chat.
  • Public games: Anyone can join, and use either text (13 years and up) or phrase chat.

WolfQuest Old and New

WolfQuest is a game that just won't fade away! In 2015, we released WolfQuest 2.7 -- an update of the original game with significant improvements. Since then we have been developing WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition, which takes the game to the next level!

Now available in Early Access for PC/Mac on Steam, WolfQuest.org, and itch.io, it's a complete remake of the game -- bigger and better in every way. While in Early Access, we will be updating the game frequently with more features, multiplayer, and ultimately the Slough Creek episode with pups. The mobile version will come after the game is completed on PC/Mac platforms.

WolfQuest: Anniversary Edition is free update to players who own WolfQuest 2.7.
