Thief 4 making its debut at GDC

Thief 4

Since confirming Thief 4 in 2009 Eidos Montreal hasn’t revealed much about the game’s development. But it is now known that Thief 4 will be making its debut at the Game Developer’s Conference.

The schedule on the official GDC website now has a listing for a presentation titled, "Stealing Sound: Generative Music in THIEF."

The accompanying description explains how audio has been an integral part of the Thief series and will continue to play an important role in the newest entry.

"Innovative audio has been at the heart of the original THIEF titles and Eidos Montreals new THIEF is no exception, this presentation will mark the first time that the game has been spoken about publicly," reads the description. "This talk will argue for the benefits of using generative music in games and will present a theoretical framework for its justification. Developers should more enthusiastically embrace alternative music models to resolve ongoing issues with linearity and to create a musical aesthetic that pushes away from the shadow of film."

GDC is set to take place on February 28 through March 4.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
