26 years after Thief’s release, one of its programmers is streaming the game’s most ambitious mod

After powering through Nightdive’s superb System Shock Remake, former Looking Glass developer Marc Leblanc has returned to Twitch and YouTube to stream The Black Parade, a lauded mod that presents an interquel between the classic Looking Glass stealth games, Thief: The Dark Project and Thief 2: The Metal Age.

Thief modding is one of those little universes all its own, comparable to other retro treasure troves like the Doom and Quake scenes. Even still, the recent 10-level campaign The Black Parade is in a league of its own, boasting utterly huge levels, new voice acting and gadgets, as well as fresh systemic interactions like house servants who will clean up your sound-dampening moss arrow surfaces or relight torches you’ve extinguished. YouTube reviewer MandaloreGaming argues it might even represent a new peak for the series all these years later.
