Thief (2014): A New Beginning

This is so embarrassing, but I forgot an entire sentence! Where the article says, “This sounds impossible and doomed to fail.” I meant to follow that up with, “It’s not!”


Where to even begin with this one! I was having a hard day, but that doesn’t excuse it. The text in full should read, “Sneaking behind the grates. I’m sneaking / stuck with a poison dart / Shouldn’t have tried to open that chest / Gotta find something to eat.”


Actually, based on where the moon was in the sky, he died on 2 23 NRy842. At least, that’s what I heard from someone who was there.

Reload Save

In this piece, I say that my objective is to steal the bejeweled mask. That is an objective from the mission Lockdown but then I quote the flavor text for mission Dirty Secrets. The objective should read “This isn’t the City I know. I remember the accident at Northcrest Manor like it was yesterday; the ritual, taking the claw; Erin falling . . . dying. I’ll never forget it. But now there’s sickness in the air and death on the streets. This place was no rose-garden to begin with but it was never this bad. Everything’s changed . . . and not for the better.”.

When Did Garrett Live?

I don’t even know where to begin with this one. Just wrong through and through.

I Have Not Failed

I have failed.


“Run across a window beam” should be more like “gingerly walk across a window beam”.

Gossip Wafting

I actually got that gossip from a book at the bank.

Press (Y) to Focus

Some things I missed: Guard, man, arrow, doorknob, woman, grate, jewel.

Items Month

Never did talk about the lockpick.


I use the word ‘gleaming’ twice. D’oh!

Recipe For Fun

You don’t technically need three roommates to play this game!


It’s not so much a fuse box as it is a wire box? You kind of have to play the game to get it.

Water Arrows

This is more an issue with Medium’s formatting, but I wanted it to be in four line stanzas, with one extra line at the end. Try reading it like that for a fun change!

The Claw

Erin actually doesn’t use the claw to kill a guard. She kills a guard after I had already stolen the claw from her.

The Wrench

I say at one point that Thief (2014) is a four-year-old game. It’s not. It’s a six-year-old game.


One of the tags for this piece is ‘architecture’. But this piece is actually deceptively not about architecture. The building is a metaphor. Sorry for the confusion!

The Old Chapel

The wiki has a link called ‘permanent link’ but that page actually no longer exists.

Tavern Barker

Hey, if everyone’s coming to see the carnival attraction, then it isn’t such a hidden specimen, is it?!

Loot List

Spoons and forks only go for 2 gold, unless it’s a golden version, which goes for 6 gold. I know a lot about Thief ‘2014’.

Social Stealth

Maybe these lines should be in quotation marks so it’s clearer that they’re all said by different people.


I guess I was really leaning on the Shift key for this one! All the “s are supposed to be ‘s and most of the ‘s shouldn’t even be there.

Slowly Piling Up

Nobody will buy those little wires.

Another Unsolved Case

The whole idea of an asylum is really dark, and the first time I mention it’s in the game is with a flippant joke. I think this is a mistake of severity.

The Wind Bears a Message

I say the wind has a message, but in the poem I say the rats are telling it to me. Well, which is it?!

Aristocracy and Locked Doors

My finger accidentally slipped while I published this one and I made it private. My bad! If you want to read it without being a Medium Partner, you can always go into Incognito Mode. Wink.

A Love of Light

This never happened.

Garrett’s Ring Finger Part One

I’m still working on the video, sorry for the wait! Don’t forget to like and subscribe!

Script Kiddie, pg 2

At that point? It’s a job.

Misjudged the Distance


Erin Returning Home

Floor. Trapdoor. Down. Mattress. Garrett. Reallly messsed up with the double letters on this one.

Squeezing Dry {{{3/14}}}

I’m clearly cooking the books here. It’s just dishonest at this point.

Developer Update #2

“62 other pieces, including this one.” Consider the books cooked.

I Want to Start Over

Missing a “.

Jupiter Ascending

I didn’t give it a standing ovation in the theater, my friend Joe did. I just thought the piece worked better if I said I did.

Level Breakdown: Introduction

I should have mentioned in this introduction: One of the parts of three in one of the five parts has two parts. You’ll see as we go.

Level Breakdown: Geometry

Looking at it now, maybe I should have gone vertices, line segments, triangles? That might have made more sense.

Level Breakdown: Triangles

When I said there are three types of triangles that mathematicians have discovered, I meant to say invented. Maybe. It’s hard to tell sometimes with math.

Squeezing Dry Four Out Of Fourteen

Not my finest math work.


Unfortunately, you can’t ever actually fully reboot.

Blue on Blue

There’s no stacking doll item in the game. Missed opportunity.

5 AM

I gotta be honest. I have no CLUE what I’m talking about here.

How to Write a Poem

It’s paramount.

Developer Update #3

Correction: Twice I call the level Miserable Blighttown. It’s just called Blighttown. I don’t know where I could have gotten the idea of Miserable.

Capuchin Pilferer

This is the single worst title of anything ever.


33.7 MB AppCompat, actually.

Dice Wars

I’m not sure anything could make me like strategy games. Don’t have the Focus for it.

Level Breakdown: Line Segments

I probably could have stood to list a few more examples of what line segments can look like, so I’ll do it here: a big boat, inside a spaceship, a desert bluff, Walmart, inside of a purse.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Sometimes there’s a seventh DING in the second of three parts of the attack. You can tell because the enemy rears back farther before they start. That seventh DING is what’ll kill ya.

Overheard in an Office Breakroom

A little stick drew the line.

Squeezing Dry 6:00

This is from years ago. It doesn’t apply to me anymore.

How do other people do it?

Misguided. I should feel ashamed and I certainly do a lot.

Squeezing Dry 8

Unfortunately, I’m not even 4.71% done with this project. Oh well!

Squeezing Dry 9/14

Missed the date! Whoops.

Thievery at the Master Level

I fear I moved too fast for people on this one.


This was supposed to come out on February 1st, as a two year anniversary of the project. I’m struck by the speed of days.
