Thief: The Dark Project is a revolutionary first person action adventure that introduces stealth, subterfuge, and mystery to a tired genre of mindless shooting.
As Garrett, a cynical and world-weary master thief, you must make use of stealth and intellect to complete your missions. You live in an ancient city of a fictional past where magic and primitive technology coexist uneasily. Your victims are the city’s corrupt and privileged nobility, whose wealth is at your disposal as long as their guards don’t see you, at least not until it is too late.
Your dark heroics earn you the attention of a mysterious patron who offers you a fortune if you can retrieve an enormous gemstone with a notorious reputation. But it soon becomes clear that more is at stake than a comfortable retirement. Your efforts trigger a conflict between veiled powers who compete to pull your strings. You’ll need all your strength and wits to discover the truth and escape from the web of intrigue and deception spun around you. Garrett’s adventures will take you through moon-lit city streets, guarded mansions, secure prisons, blazing factories, haunted cathedrals, abandoned ruins, grim catacombs, subterranean lost cities, and even into strange, distant realms where the laws of this earth no longer apply.
