Thief: The Dark Project on PC

Thief: The Dark Project is a 1998 first-person stealth game developed for Windows by Looking Glass Studios and published by Eidos Interactive. Set in a medieval steampunk metropolis called the City, the game follows Garrett—a thief trained by a secret society—as he undertakes missions to steal valuables.

Thief was the first stealth game to use light and sound as gameplay mechanics, and the first to feature a first-person perspective; its use of this perspective for non-confrontational gameplay challenged the first-person shooter market. The game's design combines complex artificial intelligence with simulation systems to allow for emergent gameplay. Thief's influence has been traced to later stealth titles, including Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell and Hitman.

The game received critical acclaim, and has been placed on numerous "hall of fame" lists. With sales of half a million units by 2000, it is Looking Glass Studios' most commercially successful game. It was followed by three sequels—Thief II: The Metal Age, Thief: Deadly Shadows and Thief 4—developed by Looking Glass Studios, ION Storm and Eidos Montreal, respectively.
