    Hi,

    My name is Lucyna. I represent a small independent team - All Blue Studio and we would like to tell you a little about the game we are currently working on - The Thief of Wishes!



    It is an interactive book that will allow your child to make the first independent choices and track their consequences through different endings. The gameplay is focused on traveling between two different worlds (a lovely old town and it’s nightmare version) and choosing one of two available actions/questions to make the story progress.

    The main protagonist of the app is a brave and book loving girl - Catharine. Her goal is to defend the dream distorted by a mysterious monster, save the villagers, and reveal the secret of the magic Fountain.

    Release Date: autumn 2017
    Available directly from Homepage and via App Store
    Language: English, Polish, German, French (more coming in future).

    For more screenshots and information please visit our studio website or press kit.

    We really appreciate any feedback and comments.

    Best regards
    All Blue Studio Team

    Hello Everyone!

    This time a small general update: we decided to add three minigames to our app – just to make sure, that even the youngest ones will find something interesting in “The Thief of Wishes”. Of course those mini-games are completely separate from the main story (you can select them from the main menu).

    Each of the games is dedicated to a different area of child development: reflex, memory or perception.
    The first mini-game (from the reflex category) has a simple mechanics: you should catch pumpkins before they smash on the ground. When the time passes, the pumpkins fall faster and faster, and we have only three "failed attempts" before "game over". So we just play for points.

    And it looks like this:

    And now the question is: do your kids like such games?
    Do they have any favorites? What is important to them?
    Thank you very much for your feedback!

    Hello Everyone!

    Another mini-game from "the Thief of Wishes" - from the "perception" category.

    This time we will be looking for watches. Watches are hidden throughout the map in various amusing places. Even I had a problem to find all of them ;) So I hope that the search will give kids a lot of fun.

    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!

    Hi there!

    Today we would like to share with you the joyful news:

    The Thief of Wishes is finally here for all iOS devices!

    We would like to thank you for your patience and support. It was a great experience to work on this story – so we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

    During the next updates, expect more language versions and mini-games.

    We will be also grateful for any comments that will help us improve the application in the future – so feel free to let us know what you think about it anytime!

    App description:

    Together with Catharine - a brave and charming heroine - the child and parents have a chance to discover the secret of a magic fountain. They will need to make a decision whether to save the inhabitants of the old, lovely town and remove the curse or maybe even punish the monster. But be careful! Not all fairy tales have a happy ending. Sometimes, however, the lesson from them is much more important than the safe future of its heroes.

    The application develops creative thinking, reading skills, and explores themes such as fulfillment or giving up dreams, giving parents a convenient tool for discussing them with their kids. Over forty beautifully designed illustrations allow you to enjoy a story comparable to a real book. But this time it's up to the readers to decide what the characters are talking about and how this story ends.

    The application also has two modes: designed for self-reading or listening to the story read by a lector. It also includes a logical mini-game, and other ones are already in preparation.

    Features:

    ▪ Atmosphere of traditional fairy tales

    ▪ Journey through two different worlds

    ▪ More than 40 beautiful pages

    ▪ Alternative dialogue options and endings

    ▪ Original music


    Defend your dreams in March 2018 and try to defeat the cunning Thief!

    This looks absolutely charming, and I love how the game is a learning/conversation tool between parents and children. Congratulations on launching The Thief of Wishes. I look forward to checking it out!

    Hi guys!

    Thank you very much katastrophic88! You really make us happy with your kind words. For a small studio like ours every word of support is very important and gives us strength to work even more. We hope that you will like the story. Feel free to share your opinion anytime. :)

    And as a general update:

    Thanks to your precious feedback we've improved our application.

    Please check the newest version for some major changes:
    • Sometimes the animation scenes or specific parts of the story were too long, which made it necessary to touch the screen continuously. Now we are preventing a device idle mode when the story is ongoing.
    • Do you like stickers? Because we love them! We added sticker pack for iMessage. Just look how cute Catharine is...
