This game (Thief) was one of my all time favorites, and is creidted with starting the "sneak" genre of gaming where the player can remain hidden. It was a three part series. This was the first game that had any popularity to use the shadows and darkness to your advantage. In fact, the entire game was built around stealth and staying hidden from your foes. If you got caught out in the open it was almost certian death for you! You had to find a back way in, shoot out torches with water arrows to create more dark space to stay hidden, blackjack enemies from behind and hide their bodies, disarm alarms etc. It even had zombies before zombies were cool! Great game to play at night. It was really groundbreaking for its time. It also had a great storyline and was one of the first games to have an "open world" environment unlike the more popular games of its time like Doom, Unreal, and Quake. You see more stealth being used over the years since then, and it's much more prominently used today in games like Skyrim, Far Cry etc.

I wondered if this game would ever get revived, and it looks like it will be for PS4 and PC.

Here is a great resource regarding the new Thief game, previous history etc straight from Game Informer. Nice!

Here is a few minutes of the first game, "Thief, the Dark Project". You can see how involved the story was, and once you get to the gameplay its funny to see how rudimentary it looks by today's standards! Hell, it was 1998!

Neat to see the difference from the first game to the third. The third was designed as a third person view, which was really new and popular at the time, but you could download a patch to make the view first person like the old games.

I can't wait for Thief 4 to come out! Because it has a pedigree and a long detailed story, the guys at Eidos already have most of the groundwork laid out for them.
