'Thief' (ALL) Mod Contest Gets You Sweet Swag

by Rainier on Feb. 18, 2014 @ 3:30 p.m. PST

Thief is a reinvention of a classic franchise that allows players to take on the role of Garrett, THE master thief. When the city that created and defines him is threatened, Garrett must step from the shadows and uncover the truth before his world is torn apart forever.

There is a rising tide of fear in The City. Hatred saturates every stone and whilst the rich prosper, the less fortunate face misery and repression. Ravaged with sickness and famine, they wait for something to change.

Into this shadowy world steps Garrett, THE master thief in a first-person adventure featuring intelligent design that allows players to take full control, with freedom to choose their path through the game’s levels and how they approach and overcome each challenge.

Beginning today, Square Enix and Amazon.com, in collaboration with a host of gaming partners including AMD and the team behind The Dark Mod, challenge the THIEF and modding communities to put their imagination to the test. Whether it’s creating a new heist for Garrett or reworking a classic level from the series, Square Enix and Amazon are looking for fans to submit entries in one of two categories; either a short video playthrough of a mod they’ve created, or a pitch for a mod they would like to create.

Once submitted, all entries will be voted on by the community, members of the Thief development team, and members of The Dark Mod team.

One winner from each of the two categories will be chosen and will receive a host of prizes from key partners, including:

  • A high-end gaming rig from AMD which includes an AMD Radeon™ R9 290X graphics card
  • An all-expenses paid trip to E3 2014 with Square Enix
  • Steam code for all Square Enix Games with the matching Prima Guide
  • A bundle of game development books on Kindle
  • An Amazon Kindle DX

In addition, every entrant to the competition will also receive a free digital version of Thief: Gold (1999) courtesy of Amazon.com. For more information on how to enter and the full list of categories and prizes, visit the official contest website
