For those who have never played the very first Thief game, Garrett has to go to a supernatural infested part of the the City called the Old Quarter to obtain something called ‘the Eye’ from an old Hammerite Cathedral. If I am remembering correctly, if you play on Expert there is a small side objective you can do where you have to find the Watchman’s grave and give it some coins for luck.
So then recently I was playing through the side missions of the new Thief game, and when I was going through them I came across this little golden line that Garrett quips out before you continue on your way.
I was very surprised to hear such a small part of the older games referenced, even if it was just a quick mention in a side quest. It brought back a lot of memories (because I spent HOURS on that part of the map in the first game) and I’m glad to see they included little parts of the Thief lore!
