Thief Launch Trailer
Square Enix celebrates the upcoming February 25 release of Thief with this launch trailer. The first thing that caught my attention was the game cinematics, they were beautiful. The trailer opens with Garret asking a man in a boat if he believes in "ghost". The ghost is shown in flashbacks to be his former prodigy, but it also implies the gameplay mechanic that requires stealth. When I think of ghost, I think of a being that I can sense the presence of, but can't pinpoint exactly where. A ghost is also an entity to fear, that describes what Garrett is perfectly. Garret is running away from a ghost, but he is also a ghost.
There are still some plot elements that aren't very clear. I'm curious to see how being a thief makes you a hero in a corrupt society. I found the tagline "What's Yours Is Mine" hilarious, because it reminded me of the light-hearted pixel game Monaco.
