If you can’t wait for Eidos Montreal’s game, this might tide you over
If like me you’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Eidos Montreal’s new Thief game, then this trailer for The Dark Mod might interest you. It’s a full, standalone mod built in the Doom 3 engine that’s been in the works for a few years now but has finally been released. It’s got all the old-school thievery you’d expect, including the much-missed rope arrows.
Whilst the trailer shows a game that looks rough round the edges, it’s still an impressive attempt for a mod built up in a totally different game engine. The dynamic lighting looks well implemented, something that’s always important in a stealth game.
I’d be downloading this now but the team’s site is currently down. Here’s hoping it’s back online soon so I can get to blackjacking clumsy guards.
