    THIEF COMMUNITY TEASER / WEB UPDATES & TRAILER - Discussion Thread

    Hey taffers,

    The guys and gals on the Thief team have been working on a little something special for you all on the forums over the last couple of weeks, something we're all really excited to finally share with you today: The first ever in-engine glimpse of Thief.

    Check out my blog post here!

    I'd like to extend my sincere thanks to each and every one of you in the Thief community for the dedication and enthusiasm that you show us every day. I hope that you'll enjoy this small token of our appreciation from the dev team as much as we enjoyed creating it for you

    Also, what do you think of think of the new Thief website updates?

While it was a tough decision to make, ultimately we need to remain objective and not let nostalgia cloud our vision - we're focused on making the very best game that we can.

    We're incredibly impressed by the excellent job the voice of Garrett is doing. Rest assured, 2014 is a long way away and we've got lots planned to show you both on what to expect from Garrett and Eidos-Montreal's Thief. Looking forward to sharing it with you

    Stephen Russell was originally our first choice for Garrett, and he was involved earlier in the project. However, when his voice today was compared against the visuals of our imagination of Garrett, it simply did not match the vision of the character that we're trying to achieve.

    We're incredibly excited to introduce the new voice of Garrett to you all. He's been doing an absolutely amazing job, and we've got a LOT to show you all between now and 2014 that will convince you in the same way that we were convinced Exciting times ahead!

    Everytime I click on the blog post, I go to said post but it immediately bounces me back to the front community page after one second. Is that because of the web updates or is my browser just being dumb?

    Works fine for me! I'm liking the new site look!

    The video was nice too.

    Great tease!

    What I really like is the a rebours symbolism of this short scene: the game comes to light (finally!), so Garrett needs to step into the darkness.
    Try my Thief 2 fan mission Old Comrades, Old Debts.

    I like the city watch posters, like so called dieselpunk theme (circa I-II WW)

    Great teaser, but the fog, lot's of it. Makes the night shine bright.

    Well now I'm even more excited! Looking forward to 02/04.

    Although I don't think the website is working for me at the moment...

    I actually think that new web page is an abomination, one should never put visual effects over usability, and this is exactly what has been done to that page.

    - I am referring to the scrolling effects - they should not be there if they bock access(click) on text and links which they do, even slightest scroll makes all links inaccessible.
    How would that be funny?

    I hope that music isn't representative of the ingame soundtrack. Because if it is, it'll be hard to hear enemy footsteps or idle mumbling. The Thieves Guild had music that was too loud, and wasn't really "ambient" and thus it was a bit detrimental to gameplay. And Thief 1 didn't have a music volume slider.

    -snip

  20. Love the new site And can't wait for April 2 to come

    What was the point of that?
    Speed up the accelerating returns, 'cause carbon doesn’t work, I want to evolve and operate at terahertz.
