we will first taste the wine and THEN decide if this tavern is worth our while.
if it's one of that light-headed californian wastage that passes for "innovative reboot of a franchise" nowadays we will be staying at the old tavern that provided so much joy and mature satisfaction for us.

And yes, that is true.
Even so I do think that Garrett needs to be involved somehow. Otherwise I really don't see how Eidos would survive due to all Theif fans flaming them for not having him somewhere in the game :P

Hallo!

My name is Nathan Rockwood, and I'm very happy to see this beginning!

Though I'm currently a teacher-in-training, I spend a lot of my free time freelancing as a game writer/developer (tabletop RPGs, not computer games; the Cortex system, the Serenity and Battlestar Galactica RPGs, etc), and one of my favorite activities has always been to roleplay in the Thief universe using homebrew game systems. I always look forward to more canonical stories and information!

Blessed be,
~Nathan

Hey there, good luck with the project. If you're reading and you're wondering, here's a couple of things you might want to consider:

1) Garrett stays.
2) Use Thief 2 as a guide; the series peaked there for a reason.

Hope it goes well.

Doesn't really come as a surprise but HURRAY! Thief 4 has officially been announced. That actually makes me happy. Now, let the whining begin!

I can usually be found in the Deus Ex 3-forums but I guess this will become my second (EM-)home from now. Hello, fellow forumites!

11th May 2009, 17:01
The Thief series is the only PC game I've played since Meridian 59... and to think I purchased the original Thief out of curiousity and have an unhealthy love towards ever since. I don't have time to game, but dammit I'll make time for this one - whatever platform it lands on, I'll own for this game alone.

I registered simply to post my appreciation.

Eidos Montreal, thank you very, very much.

Vladimyre
11th May 2009, 18:28
Oh yes, there will be much whine'ing in these halls. But I've got a good feeling about this, the thief series has always had a passionate following. Debate is good, from the IP that EM has picked up it really looks like they have a passion for Thief and Deus when you really care about an IP it shines through to the finished product ( ususally ;) )

I'm looking forward to the game, really. I'm just dwelling on the whole ridiculous "Thi4f" thing since that's basically all we've got... DX3 at least got an awesome teaser that you could spend weeks dissecting.We just got a lousy logo.

I've never had the pleasure of involving myself with the Thief online community, but there's never a bad time to start. I hang about the DX3 forums, rather quieter there but then I like it that way. Perhaps this place will calm down a little eventually!

Hey kids! I see a few names from TTLG here (I'm sure there are more that have taken on aliases, too) and I already feel at home. Think I'll stick around & peruse the T4 threads here for awhile. Especially since TTLG seems to be having server probs and there's only about 16 members who have access. ;)

Anyhow; I'm over the moon with the news about the upcoming Thief 4!!! Have to admit, I honestly NEVER thought it would happen. Great news indeed!!!!!

I've been hoping for a new Thief game for so long...(From the moment I finished Thief DS,)(and no I never played Thief 1, but finished thief 2 and 3, and saw my brother play thief 1 from beginning to end)

BTW, just because I hear allot of people complaining about Thief DS, I don't get why. It was still an great game and I liked DS as much as I liked Thief 2.(why do I have the feeling I be killed for saying this...)

Hey everyone! I'm so taffin stoked for Garrett to make his misanthropic return!

I'm so glad Eidos is looking to renew the thief franchise because in this economy, you gotta have a winner, and with the fan base like it is, if they work their hearts out on this game, you know its going to make money! That aside, can you imagine the possibilities of thief 4?

Modern graphics - yes!
Advanced stealth - yes! (Not Assassin's creed style stupidity - even though I like that game :P
Return of the BEST video game story to ever see the light of day? Um, yeah I want that 2 ! !

Cool. Something to look forward too! I think Thief was one of the first FPSs which was really scary with those chain clinking wights...having to sneak around them while they moaned and clanked. The dinosaurs were awesome too...the best fun I had shooting broadheads. Thief 2 was a great game too...awesome story and gameplay.

But, god I hope Thi4f is nothing like Thief 3...that had very little that was truly fun, well the rooftop action was cool, and there was a bit of a scary section in the hospital. But, reloading every 2 minutes was a joke. I've got an Intel i7 965 with 6GB of RAM, a 1GB nVidia GTX285 OC, Fatal1ty Titanium, a 64GB solid state drive, and Windows Vista Business 64-bit. I can probably load up the entire game in 15 seconds. Sure, it's not what everyone else has, but please don't make it a fixed architecture.

I don't think they are surprised. I do however wonder if they fully realize what they are getting themselves into and the fanatical devotion some of us have for the classic Thief Games and Garrett.

Like many i'm a big Thief fan since the orginal game and was glad to hear a new Thief is in the works.

So this is my hello to everyone on the forum of which i'm sure i'll troll from time to time.

My name is Matt. I am 18 years old. Thief and Deus Ex are some of my favorite games ever and I hope that the new games will be among my favorites as well.

So ... Hi everyone! :wave:

Thief fan from Tacoma, Washington here.

I'm glad to see that Eidos is working on a new episode of for the series. From what I've read the team is not going to include anyone from Looking Glass. I'm not sure that's in the best interest of the project. Whatever happens, I think that we need to get back to the "feel" that the game had in Thief I and II. We should also stick with high quality animations for the cutscenes. They age better than the CG stuff.

True. Though I'm sure they will be using motion capture for the animations, so it should turn out good.

I don't think they are surprised. I do however wonder if they fully realize what they are getting themselves into and the fanatical devotion some of us have for the classic Thief Games and Garrett.
I am sure they've learned a lesson or two about fanatical devotion in the DX3-forums... :whistle:

Hi. I'm a 22 year old hungarian taffer. I've been playing Thief for nine years now. The first two are the games that inspired me most as an artist - I'm actually a writer (published only short stories so far, first novel maybe next year) and a video game designer (currently working on my first game with experienced artist and programmers, casual garage-project stuff, should be done by this summer), so I'm really excited, what's next. I really want Thief 4 to go back to it's roots, so I'm gonna taff around here until that happens :)

Viktoria, you are doing a great job as a mod, and you seem to be quite in tune with Thief and what it should be.

This has been said before, but I hope that the T4 team can play a lot of the great T2 Fan Missions and come to appreciate what we mean by back to the basics.

Yes, I am a devoted fan of the Thief games (more 1 & 2) and continue to play all the fan missions you speak of. In fact, I ALWAYS put another current game I am playing on hold when a new mission is released. I am truly obsessed.. but all these fan missions have made me sooooo happy for all these years! :cool:

Just a question though... how exactly do the mods and devs sort through all the threads and suggestions and discussion therein? Do you read every single post? Because having been to the Blizzard (WoW) forums, you can understand that some people may get the idea that they are not being heard. O_o

... not that I'm accusing or anything. We just don't want our suggestions to fall on deaf ears. ^_^ If I can help you guys in the creative process in any way, I'm here. And I fully intend to play through the series again to get some material for you.

Names Hypevosa, or Hype for short. I was a fan of the thief games since I first saw the styalized text title on the side of the box at an EB games. I liked the way it looked, and the thought of being a thief sounded like fun... so I gave it a go. I loved it, the intricacy, the stealth, the *thunk* "uughhhh..." It was an awesome came. Then thief 2 came out, and the metal age wasn't disappointing either. So the graphics weren't top notch? the art, the story, the gameplay was all awesome. I got deadly shadows for PC, and it wasn't as good as the other games, but it was cool nonetheless. If you look at my avatar, it's a bastardization of the symbol in the Woodsie Lord's forehead, and I've used it as a symbol for a long time.

And so I'm here, because I want to be a part of making this game great :D

Greetings, my fellow taffers, it's Klára from Hungary!

Reading all these posts make me feel bad about never being involved in the online Thief community, but I guess the announcement of Thief 4 is a good opportunity to join in the fun. Welcome another regular TTLG lurker on stage! :D

Everything began around 2000 with the Thief 2 demo... I couldn't believe a game level could be so vast, complex, full of secrets, so ALIVE. I fell in love with the City and its amusing inhabitants, with the atmosphere, and with the mysterious and witty master thief, not to mention the brilliant voice acting. It was perfect in every possible way and you could really feel the devotedness of the Looking Glass staff. Ever since then I've played Thief 1-2 so many times that I stopped counting after a while, it just became a habit, an addiction. Deadly Shadows also had its good points, but it was pale in comparison to its memorable ancestors.

I've come to this tavern for the same reason as most of you taffers have; to take part in the creation of another legend. : )

Good luck with the making of Thi4f (lolz, still looks so weird) and feel free to depend a lot on our tips and ideas! :D

A special welcome to all the Hungarian taffers! :wave:

But of course I'm happy for everybody else too, here is a little surprise to prove it: :flowers: :D

I've introduced myself in the DX3 forums but I guess I should say some stuff here too, because I'll spend a lot of time on these boards as well. So, I'm a 25 years old guy from Hungary, from a small town near the Hortobágy. I work the night shift for an online company and write news articles for PC Guru Online (like the Thief 4 announcement :)). I fell in love with the Thief games when the T2 demo came out, I loved it and played with it for many hours. But I have to admit I first met this legendary series when I was a bit younger, just really starting gaming with my first PC (yeah, I joined the club a bit late, didn't have the money before) and I'm ashamed to admit it but I found T1 boring and dumb at that time. I've only played with games like Doom, Shadow Warrior and Blood before, so I didn't know a lot about what gaming can offer. I installed Carmageddon 2 instead. :o :D But after some time I opened my eyes and saw that there's more to gaming then just shooting and blowing stuff up. And after Thief 2 I got DX1, T1, T Gold and started looking at other genres too, like RPGs, RTSs and so on.
So yes, Thief was a big influence in my life too. :cool: Thank you Looking Glass and Ion Storm!

Sorry, I didn't want to write such a long post. :D

Hi, I´m 22 and student of physics and philosophy.

The Thief games inspired me in so many ways (hehe not in the way you may think :p)



...through them I got interested in architecture/art history and even did some concept art.

I even think that the games brought me to philosophy because concepts like order and chaos, the ultimate failure of a single (narrow) worldview are major themes in the storyline.

In my opinion the DS plot finished this idea perfectly -the very philosophy of balance (of the keepers) failed because ultimately it was as narrow minded as the other two itself, while in the end Garrett brought balance by acting without suppporting any philosophy but with pure common sense.

Haha I´ve studied so many philosophy books (east and west) just to find out that computer games I´ve played years ago are containing a bit of the ultimate truth ;)

Hey! My name's Kaelyn and I'm glad to join you guys. Unfortunately, it's been a long time since I've been able to relive Thief 1 & 2, but I must say, they definitely opened my eyes to a new gaming experience, particularly Thief 2. I also legitimately enjoyed TDS, despite its flaws.

Because of my financial difficulties I will probably not be able to play Thief 4 until it is already a rather old game, because I am unable to purchase a PC (I have a Mac laptop through my school--hey, it works well for composing!) However, I still want to see it be as great a game as it can be, so I'm happy to offer my suggestions, for what they're worth! Don't listen to the cynics--we as a community are thrilled to learn that there's going to be a Thief 4, and we're excited about the possibilities. I think with a franchise like this it is absolutely essential to listen to the fans, so I hope you take in all of our suggestions! Thanks a lot!

How rude of me to not introduce myself and I'm already at my 24th post exluding this one.

Greetings fellow taffers.

I'm 26 and I'm from Malaysia. That's the country above Singapore and yes, we do speak English.

Started with TMA meself. It was love at first sight. But seeing as how I started with the sequel I was a bit lost at the time.

I was working as a waiter in 2000 after my O-levels when I met a fellow taffer/waiter. That guy was totally in love with TDP and haven't played TMA yet and I just finished TMA and was looking to get TDP.

We ended up trading our discs and when the restaurant went bankrupt 9 months later, we stopped contacting each other. Neither of us bothered to call to get back our games. I guess the pain of seeing each other again would have too much or somethin. I dunno.

I must be going against the trend here when I say I enjoyed TDP more than TMA. The Trickster thing really spooked me honestly. The Industrial thing in TMA while not bad just wasn't as scary. Plus, TDP had the very, very hot Viktoria. Hubba, hubba.

Oh, you guys remember going through those caves with them Burricks around? It was the scariest ***** ever. I remember holding my breath when I was walking past a herd of them, listening to their heavy breathing, praying that they won't hear me. That is how you make a game people!

And people wonder why we love TDP and TMA so much.

Hello all,

I'm a 22 year old from Houston, TX.

I'm a long-time thief player, and a long-time Eidos/TTLG forum lurker. If you've seen me around, it's been me asking how to jerry-rig TG onto my computer or to tweak TDS so that I can actually play it. My brother introduced me to TMA when I was 10, and I loved it, even though I was awful at the playing style. Thief got me started on stealth-based gaming and I've never looked back! Here's hoping the new game lives up to its predecessors.

I almost bought on Ebay 2 years, an in store stand up window display for T2. The guy only wanted $60.00 for it. He got the shipping wrong, it would of cost about the same to ship it. He offered a refund since the shipping was wrong, I took it. I had to move and no room for it. Bit of a bummer, but, oh well.

Hey guys. I'm an amateur game designer with a pretty dramatic life. Seriously, we're talking Lifetime Original Movie dramatic. Turned me into quite the weird fellow...But I embrace that! Normality is dumb anyway.

I must agree, normal is absolutely boring.

Although thief fans tend to be a little left/right of center anyway. Makes it interesting.

To be honest? I think Metroid has the best fanbase. Most of them, in my experience, are very reserved, and a lot of them critical thinkers. The MOTHER fanbase is up there, but they tend to overhype things.

Haven't had enough experience to look at Thief's fanbase yet. Don't disappoint me! >_>

Then you need to be exposed to TTLG and get more Thief Exposure there too.

Huh, I wonder how I missed this thread.

Hiya, names Master Taffer, real name is Nate. Been playing Thief since the Dark Project was released in 1998 and have been a Thief enthusiast since day one (I hate the term "Fan" and associate it with bickering and complaining people who are arrogant never satisfied with anything.) I've already been enjoying some civil conversation around here, and look forward to more.

Hi to all.
I am new to the THEIF forum, although I have been using the Arkham Asylum site.
I was wondering if anyone could help/explain a little about the Thief games. I am 360 owner and understanding that this will be the 4th (obviously) game of the series. Having not followed much of the other 3 games. Just wanted a little basic knowledge of the series.
I have researched a little online myself and would like to get into this forum to start discussing the 4th game.
Any help appreciated
Thanks

Well hello there. I'm Maeglin Lightfoot. Some older taffers may remember me from my days over at TTLG as "deadman." Imagine my surprise when I type "thief 4" out of mock boredom in the address bar today and get redirected to this site ;) I'm a 26 year old junior going to UCD (Denver) seeking a BFA in 3D animation; let's just say the atmosphere of Thief was a huge influence in that decision. Don't know how active I'll be here, especially once the fall semester starts up again, but here's hoping for a sequel worthy of the Thief franchise! (among other things, this means no botched dynamic lighting engines ala "Deadly Shadows" to screw things up)

Cheers!

Hey everyone :)

I've been a thief fan since launch day of TDP back in what... 1998 or so?

After playing through the Bafford's Manor demo about 25 times I had to have the game, and there it came into my life forever :)

The news that T4 was going to be in production was absolutely brilliant for me - it's my favourite series of all time and I really hope that everyone here as a community alongside the developers can make this a fantastic game.

I'm a big ps3 gamer at the moment, not much to do in the world of PC gaming, only when I can't boot the missus off the tv when she's watching soaps and other rubbish lol

So hello everyone!

Lady_Of_The_Vine
29th May 2009, 18:07

Praise indeed They are truly amazing just glorious all the work that goes into them for us to play. The wonderful details and stories I so admire them all. Long may they reign. Far to many to even mention. Seven Sisters just one epic over three nights, practically a whole game. :thumb:

Hello Cookie McCrumble. :wave:
I actually played TDS first none the less a true fan since. It is exciting know there will be another Thief game, It is all I play. The wonderful fan missions that keep appearing, keeping Thief alive? :)

Thanks for the welcomes :D

I can imagine nothing better than sitting in my front room with the ps3 on playing T4 in full hd on my 40" tv :D

That sounds like gaming heaven to me!

Let's also hope for a fan mission system that can migrate over all formats, that would be awesome.

While you wait for T4, perhaps it might be a good idea to go buy the first two games? They are very cheap now. You can play the fan missions then too, many of which are truly awesome! :cool:

Hey all you Taffers!! Its great to be apart of the community especially one that is as dedicated to game as this one. Wow thief 4 thats the best news ive heard in a while. I started gaming at an early age thanks to my uncle. TDP was one of the first games i was introduced to. I was hooked from the second I started hiding from guards and running away from zombies (while having a heart attack to i might add). I believe that if the thief team get it right (which they certainly could) thief 4 would go down as one of the greatest stealth games of its time. Thief 4 has an unlimited amount of potencial and I (as well as the rest of the Taffers) will be handing in the best ideas we can think of specially for thief team. (",). From this day forth I dedicate myself to coming up with any ideas that might help or be usefull in any way no matter how small. Good luck thief team and all the best our hopes rest with you

Haven't read up much on any details yet, so I dunno if they have said anything about game plans..

Anyways, hey taffers.

So I've been a diehard Thief fan since I found TDP under my grandfathers stack of PC games.. Ever since then, I had to play every day.
And I just might be the only Thief fan alive that wasn't disappointed much by T3.

What if thief 4 was like the new friday the 13th?Not saying you would be at camp crystal lake fighting jason or anything but the way they did the remake.They made friday the 13th part 1,2,and 3 into one movie.How cool would it be to go threw all three thief games with the graphics and game engines we have today?Not saying they would all three be the same as the first but they would follow the same story lines,tweaking here and there,revamping the old levels and trying to slim down all those great levels into maybe 16 30 min missions or maybe 6-8 1 hour missons.That to me would be something I could see playing over and over again.

kinda like the new friday the 13th,the first 30 min were the fisrt one,the next 30 mins were the 2nd and the last hour was part 3.you could have 3 or 4 missions getting into the eye and all that goodness,the next few missions about the metal age,and the the last few missions wrap it all up,chop the whole series into bite size little pieces and put it back together.Honestly i just think theif would be so much better if it was redone with todays tech.

Hihi....im Lizzy, Thief series of games is possibly the best series I can think of. Yes. It beats THE SIMSSSSSS.

Ahem. Thief 2's my favorite, and I hated the swirly purple mist and 3rd person viewpoint of DS....Anyone else?!
