App’s release in 2018
The winter is coming – and the white ravens have appeared… even in “The Thief of Wishes”.
Unfortunately we are forced to move the premiere of our app to the beginning of next year. It was not an easy decision to make. But we want to show you our app as a fully finished product, so we have decided to continue working until we are fully satisfied with the final result. At present there are still recordings and changes in music to be done. We would also like to provide you more language versions.
Thank you very much for your patience and support.
Hopefully “The Thief of Wishes” will be able to meet your expectations soon and that will fulfil our dream!
The Thief of Wishes – Developer’s point of view
At the beginning of our work on “The Thief of Wishes”, we had a difficult choice – which platform do we want to develop for? At first, we considered Unity with its flexibility. Of course, the free engine which we can use to develop for Windows, Android and Steam is a great advantage, but also a lot of problems. We didn’t have many expectations except one: to be able to develop our project fast. And this is what we couldn’t achieve.
Mini-games are the newest addition to The Thief of Wishes. We decided that even the youngest ones should will find something interesting in our app – just as a break from the main story. Each of the games is dedicated to a different area of child development: reflex, memory or perception.

The Thief of Wishes – Heroes part II
Although the Thief and Catharine are the main characters in our story, there are many other interesting personalities in the town. To break the evil spell and free her family and friends from the curse, Catharine must properly recognize and assign wishes to the people who made them.
The Thief of Wishes – Heroes
But what about the Thief? At the beginning, before the final concept of the “demonic raven”, we had a few other ideas. We knew from the start that we want Catharine (“The Girl”) and the Thief (“The Monster”) perform together as a duo. But the theme of the script was more comedic, with continuous escapes, gags and many attempts to take the stolen coins away from the Thief.
The Thief of Wishes – Gameplay
Like any small studio we decided to start ambitious …and we wasted time on several projects, which even large companies would hesitate to consider.
But sooner or later there is always this moment when the apple falls and inspire a man to bump into something seemingly obvious. We had a revelation. And it was that kind of idea that leads to a constructive conclusion, instead of further plans to build a rocket to Mars: A fairy tale-inspired children app with dialogue choices – that is how, in short, we can present our idea, or at least its direction.
The Thief of Wishes – Idea
Everybody once threw a coin into a fountain, but what happened to their wish is a different story. Ours began with a random question, which consequences we were unable to predict then.
“If I take a coin from a fountain, do I also steal someone’s wishes?”
That is how the idea for the app was born. “The Thief of Wishes” is the first project made by our studio, and we are delighted to welcome you as All Blue Team. Although we are small, I assure you that we make that up with enthusiasm!
