    Square's Thief April Fools joke

    http://www.thiefgame.jp/af/

    Apparently the only action Garrett can take is "steal". Someone fluent in the language can hopefully translate the rest for our collective amusement.

    The real april fool's joke is the bug that screws up everyone's game and saved games (see steam forums and technical discussion).

    Yeah the save looping issue is infuriating and had better not be an official april fools joke as it is not funny in the least. Here's the largest thread about it on the tech support forums. http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=142875

    It's not just the PC version, either. Appears to also affect the XBox One and PS4. I'm on PS3. I may not play the game today...

    Garrett is listed as masutā shīfu (master thief)
    The options are steal and run away

    So things he steals:
    Automation (オートマトン)
    Potion (ポーション)
    Lara's tank top to eat? (ララのタンクトップをぬすんでたべた)
    Hermes shoes (エルメスのくつをぬすんだ)
    Buy Thief released June 12th it's not stolen (シーフはぬすまずかってください 6がつ12にちはつばい)

    and so on, if you have translation add-on you can just highlight the text, as it is actual text an not an image.

    My game actually seems unaffected (the glorious PC Gaming Master Race strikes again), but I'm still wary to play it. I've read a lot of issues with corrupted saves if you play it, now.

    Thief 5 creation instructions: Play thief 2, play again, pay UDK4 or idTech 6 licence, employ engine programmers who are able to code jumping physics, listen to fans not ubisoft

    I am currently on Chapter 6 of my 1300 point game. After climbing the elevator shaft and then going into the Barron's office (which SHOULD trigger a cut-scene), the game reloads back to the start of the chapter. It did it three times in a row. I am able to hit ESC and "Return to The City" and can reenter the chapter 6 normally and the same error happens again.

    Is my game totally foobar now, and am I going to have to start over?
