Morning, all!
(Overslept today! Nooooo)
As a player of the original Thief and all its incarnations, me and mine have been super pumped about getting to play Garrett again. Woot! (I’ve been totally jealous of my husband and daughter, they’ve been playing since Tuesday! I had to wait – to much to do! Waaaahhh) First person sneakers for the win!

A look at Garrett’s city.

You start out in the middle of a robbery. The guy over there is only asleep. Luckily C (crouch) is something I am well acquainted with. Heh heh.  

2014 02 27 00005
My first look at the city streets.

2014 02 27 00006
The night sky.

They’ve now added birds to the game. Too much movement makes them squawk/sing. 

2014 02 27 00008
Sunrise.

The opposite side of the bay.

You get some instruction as you go along. Rope arrows are BACK! Just can’t really use them often.

Garrett’s old pupil. She’s way insecure and somewhat blood thirsty. Competitive too.

View looking through key holes. The lock picking interface is kind of fun.

2014 02 27 00013
Citizens of the fair city.

2014 02 27 00014
Garrett himself.

Erin and I have a mission at the church

Here on the left you can see the tracking bubble (only 1 quest tracks at a time), and the darkness, health, and possibly focus meter. Noise is a factor too, just like in the original games. Oh yeah. 
On the right is an icon for water arrows. YES! They brought all 4 arrow types back – rope, water, fire, and moss.

2014 02 27 00018
Erin is looking down into the machinations below as we near our goal.

2014 02 27 00019
Meet the crazy dude.

2014 02 27 00020
Where they keep the jewel we were sent to get.

2014 02 27 00021
Yeah, things aren’t looking good here.

2014 02 27 00022
Nooo definitely not. 

2014 02 27 00023
Tried to leave before things got too weird, but she was having none of it.

2014 02 27 00024
She fell through.

2014 02 27 00025
Right into the middle of the chaos.

2014 02 27 00026
Guess who falls in after her…

2014 02 27 00027
Then I wake up here. Yes, inside a cart pulled by two guys who’ve definitely seen better days. The city has changed. Disease is rampant. Abuse of power, too. Later I find out I’ve been missing an entire year…

2014 02 27 00028
I also find out I can do something I could not do before – Focus – which makes certain things glow or lets me concentrate.

2014 02 27 00029
The city as it looks now.

2014 02 27 00030
My current goal, the watch tower, my home.

So far we’ve been enjoying the game a lot. The art style is good, though kind of rough looking for people. Lots and lots of play with light. Looking forward to seeing how more of it is! And they have collections! Bwahahahaha!
