Thief Reboot

One of the PC games that most captured my imagination is Thief: The Dark Project. I’ve been playing Dishonored recently and immediately noticed the similarities (in a good way) to the old series. With word of a reboot coming next year, this teaser is all we get for now.

Diehards will complain of Garrett being voice-acted by a newcomer but this is a new game in a new age. I’m too old, as is the series, to bitch about things like that. While The Metal Age was a follow-up by the original Looking Glass Studios, Dark Shadows was developed by Ion Storm and turned out surprisingly well. I don’t think Eidos Montreal is a bad candidate for making a respectable reboot.

At least there’s fan service at the end: Garrett still has a fake eye.
