The Thief developers at Eidos Montreal have posted a new developer diary, in which narrative director Steven Gallagher discusses, or rather vaguely hints at, the story behind Garrett and behind the current state of The City.
Gallagher explains that Garrett was raised in an orphanage, and escaped at an early age to pursue a life of thievery, self-sufficiency, and more thievery. He also revealed that while the game is quite linear, The City itself will change in response to Garrett’s actions.
If you’re looking for a return of the classic factions such as the Hammerites and the Mechanists, they unfortunately won’t be present. However Gallagher mentioned that there may be references there if you dig hard enough.
