Hang on to your stuff and get ready for Cops and Thugs.. at Night! Our first Videogame for mobile devices. 

Navigate your way as a thief and steal as much stuff in the dark. Whatever you do mind the walls, furniture and especially the cops. There's more than 100 various stages all set to test your memory and dexterity. Are you the king of thieves?

Cops & Thugs.. At night! Is the first release by HiveStudio.

Born in beautiful Barcelona we are two associates with more than 8 years experience working abroad in different places such as Spain, France, USA and Canada as Computer Science Engineers specialized in Mobile Development since 2010. 

We are passionate about videogames since childhood. Since we started working on Mobile Apps we wanted to work on a videogame someday.

Finally we came up with this idea of gameplay two years ago and we started working since then in our spare time. Now we believe it’s time to give it a final push as we strive to create a professional videogame that everyone can enjoy.

Albert Castro

I really love Canada but I have to say it gets quite cold during the winter, but hey! Being stuck at home for 6 months a year also means you have plenty of time to dedicate to indoors hobbies, such as programming. I loved working on this project. I learnt a lot about videogame development as well as level design and even working on the graphics.

Damia Ferrer

I’m luckier than Albert so I can see the sunshine everyday in hot California. I’m passionate about robotics as well as mobile programming. Working in this game it’s been inspiring as I have been able to learn a lot about game level design, programming, etc.

Saoud Belshalat

I have been a gamer for as long as i can remember. I come from one of the most successful cities in the world, Dubai. I am passionate about being successful in anything I do. I work in a telecommunication company, I am the founder and board member of the UAE rugby federation. Surprisingly, I still have so much spare time. My role here is to help promote this amazing game with Albert and Damia through marketing, and also to introduce a new addictive, yet fun, game to the world.

We need your help in order to polish the game up and create the best user experience. We want to take it to the next level and make the game as fun as possible!

Apart from the funds we may receive, we really like the idea of having other people participating in our game. That's why our rewards are focused on adding game content created by our kickstarter backers. We are sure people will have much more ideas of new levels and power up items! We look forward to hear your feedback!

We are asking for $10,000. Most of the game engine and graphics are already done. So we need the money to finish the game and to add content to make it funnier!! The budged will be distributed like this:

$5,000: Create levels. Our goal is to have at least 100 levels. The more time you can play the more time you enjoy!

$3,000: More power up items! We want to make the game as varied as possible. We don’t like repetitive videogames!

$1,000: Enhance user experience. We would like to create Leaderboards and Achievements to challenge the player!

$1,000: Add miscellaneous content.

In case we could get more funds, we would like to expand the game to other devices and add much more content to the game:

$20,000: Game+ version. We love playing difficult games! We want to add a new Game+ to enlarge game life.

$24,000: iPad version. Imagine play a huge level on your tablet, we would love to create this version!

$30,000: Android version. As we have limited resources we can only work on the IOS version right now, but we would be glad to create a version for all the Android players out there.

Our release day for the App Store is scheduled for April 1st, 2015! Once we achieve our funding goal we will be working on the Kickstarter features adding content to the game!

In case we may succeed on our funding goal the idea is to launch an iPad and Android version during Summer 2015.

To be informed of the progress of the campaign and the project we recommend you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and our website!

Risks and challenges

This is our first experience in the videogame industry. We know that nowadays it’s harsh to make your videogame noticeable. But we attempt to create something funny that people can enjoy without making the game pricey!

We would thank anyone who can collaborate in our project. Any little help is more than welcome!!
