Description

We at Upopa Games seek to bring a new attitude to the industry driven by our passion to make outstanding games.

History

Hopeless: The Dark Cave

Released on December 2013, Hopeless: The Dark Cave is a cute and lovable horror game, with funny graphics and an unsettling atmosphere. The mechanics are very simple and easy to learn... but don't fool yourself, as the name implies, the game isn't easy! Since it's release, Hopeless has received great critical acclaim, and was downloaded by more than 500,000 players.

Hopeless: Space Shooting

Our next installment in the series, Hopeless: Space shooting is an intense action game with a funky retro feel. The game offers two full game modes, both available right from the start, as well as unlockable items and upgrades. Hopeless: Space Shooting will be released in April 2014 for both iOS and Android.

Before Upopa

Before founding Upopa in 2013, Niv Touboul co-founded Moon Active and created (with Moon Active) "Bitter Sam". Bitter Sam ranked in the top 23th overall apps in the US in October 2013. Or Avrahamy worked as a software engineer at Google's Visualization team. Gideon Rimmer created and released an art game inspired by the novel "1984". The game was featured on Newgrounds.com and was played by more than 46,000 individual players.

Upopa Games

In 2013, Niv, Or, and Gideon graduated from Bezalel Acaemy of Arts and Design, and founded Upopa Games with the aim of creating fun and engaging mobile games, with unique graphics and gameplay.
