Development Status
Alpha testing ran from October 7th through November 4th, 2020 and was a smashing success!

Our Kickstarter campaign was successfully funded in March of 2021 and raised over $46,000, thank you again to all of our backers for your support!

We are currently developing more features in preperation for the beta test (date TBD).

Thank you for your patience and continued support. In the meantime, feel free to follow us on our social media pages to stay up to date on progress. Moonsblessings, we hope to see you soon!

Development Update - September

Happy Sunday everyone! This month brings an exciting new update to our Demo, as well as some news about our plans moving forward. Read on to find out more!

What’s New?

  • Demo Update - Maned Pattern
  • Patreon News
  • Youtube

Demo Update - Maned Pattern

Our Wolf Demo on Lorwolf.com has been updated to include the new Maned pattern! This pattern was modeled after the maned wolves of South America and is tied to the Bracchus breed. Up next will be the Zerda’s pattern—which will feature stripes!

We hope you enjoy the new Demo, please feel free to share your creations on our Discord or on social media, and be sure to tag us @Lorwolf so we can see what you come up with!

Patreon News

Last month, we announced the possible return of our Patreon. We’ve gathered some very helpful feedback in the meantime, and as a result we have decided against restarting it for the time being. Instead, we will be looking into hosting a support bundle—a bundle of game items that can be bought in advance of Lorwolf’s official launch. We hope this provides a fair way to support our development in exchange for some valuable items! As soon as those plans have been finalized, we will announce the support bundles here and on our other social media pages, so stay tuned.

Youtube Plans

Starting this month, we will be posting more speedpaints and gameplay footage on Youtube to give everyone a look at what we’re working on behind the scenes. To kick things off, here is our latest speedpaint featuring the Vulpactia Companion! Enjoy <3

Development Update - August

Hello all, we’re back with another development update! This month, we are showcasing one of our newest professions, as well as sharing some news about our Patreon. Read on to find out more!

What’s New?

  • Mining mini-game
  • Patreon
  • Timeline update

As many of you know, Lorwolf will feature a wide variety of professions that players can choose to specialize in, such as Cooking, Farming, Fishing, etc. One of our newest professions - Mining - lets players send their wolves into the deepest caves of Loria in search of rare metals and gemstones. These materials can then be smelted/crafted into valuable items to be used or traded with others!

Leveling up your mining skill allows you to delve deeper into the caves and work more efficiently. Simply equip a set of wheels to your cart and select a pickaxe and you’re ready to mine! Here’s a screenshot of the Mining page in action:

Once you select a wolf and choose a location to mine, you can sit back and watch as it journeys through the caverns. A host of friendly NPCs will aid you in your mining efforts and load the ore into your cart. Once full, your wolf can push your cart back to the furnace where it will smelt your ore into bars to be used in various crafting recipes.

We’ve received some interest in reopening our Patreon as we continue to develop the game, and we’d love to hear your thoughts! In the years before our Kickstarter, we ran a Patreon campaign where we shared behind-the-scenes content and other such goodies every month. Patrons were able to vote on what they’d like to see in the game and get a closer look at what we were working on.

The following is a list of potential tiers we would offer, take a look:

  • $1 - Discord role + Invite to Patron Discord channel + Early access development updates
  • $5 - Previous tier + WIP sketches/mockups
  • $15 - Previous tier + Digital downloads
  • $30 - Previous tier + Behind the scenes videos + Super Supporter credit

Discord Role: Show off your support with a new title in our Discord server!

Patron Discord Channel: Access our Patron-only Discord channel to discuss the game with Alaunis and other patrons directly

Early Access Development Updates: Hear about what we’re working on before anyone else - including regular dev updates and special sneak peaks

WIP Sketches/Mockups: Get a sneak peak of our content still in development

Digital Downloads: Gain access to some of our high res wolf, companion, and background files

Behind the Scenes Videos: Every month, we will release video coverage of what we are working on - such as voiceover speedpaints, feature showcases, and gameplay footage

Super Supporter Credit: Your name will be permanently etched into a special section on our credits page. (This section will be separate from the original Patreon supporters list)

The Patreon would launch early next month, so feel free to ask questions/submit feedback in the meantime!

We are currently in Phase 4 of our development timeline which includes the setup for our eventual beta test. Right now, we are heavily focused on finishing Lorwolf’s campaign as well as adding those many quality of life touches.

Alaunis recently left her full time job in order to pursue Lorwolf full time, meaning we will be kicking development into hyperdrive! We still have an estimated release of the Beta test for the end of this year or early next year, but we will be sure to communicate any changes to you well in advance.

As always, we remain incredibly thankful for all of your support so far. Working on Lorwolf has been a dream come true, and we are so excited to share it with all of you. Please let us know if you have any questions about this update, Moonsblessings!

Development Update - July

Hello all, and welcome back to another Lorwolf Development Update! We have some exciting updates to share with you all today, read on to find out more:

What's New?

  • Wolf Demo Update - Zerda Breed
  • Asks

Wolf Demo Update - Zerda Breed

We are super duper excited to announce today that the Wolf Demo has been updated to include our newest breed - Zerdas! Please let us know if you notice any pesky bugs or leaky colors in the Zerda art. Feel free to share your generated wolves on social media, and be sure to tag us @Lorwolf so we can see your beautiful creations <3

There is one more Wolf Demo update planned for release before the Beta test which will include two new patterns - one for the Bracchus (which will look similar to the maned wolf markings) and one for the Zerda (which will feature stripes).

We've rounded up some important questions that were asked here on Tumblr recently. Please let us know if you have any questions you'd like us to answer, our Asks are always open!

The game will open up to the general public a while after our Beta Test has completed, which we estimate will take place by the end of this year or early next year!

Yes! We've created a specialty item in the game that will randomize all 5 color slots of a wolf; the eyes, accent, under, top, and base. This item is called a "besprinkler" and can be purchased through the Mole Market for a certain number of gems.

Our Beta test will be closed - meaning only those who have a Beta access key will be able to sign up and register to play during the test. We are not selling any more Beta keys at the moment, however there are many people who have extras and may be willing to trade for their keys. We have a trading channel on our official Discord server where you can post your trade offers and get in touch with other players!

We plan on sending out all beta keys and item redemption codes via email several days before the Beta test begins. Beta Early Access codes will be sent first, followed by regular Beta codes some time after.

Thank you all for your continued patience as we prepare for the Beta test! There's a lot of work to do between now and then, but we will be sure to share all of our important progress and updates as we go. We hope you've enjoyed this update, please let us know if you have any questions. We hope to see you soon!

Moonsblessings, Alaunis and JimJim
