I see this subforum is mostly for lego games... but really was the one lego castle game worth... any money? I don't think so.
Anyway the point of this thread is to ask if any of you castle builders have heard of or play the game thief? It's a stealth game where you basically sneak into castles and churches and manors and steal loot, but it also has an impressive overarching story with many unique characters.
I figure some of the forum goers may be interested because it takes place in a "medieval" setting, but with steampunk elements; so there will be huge sprawling castle levels with guards in armor and swords to avoid, but there's also electric lights, elevators, machinery and pipes all over the place. I notice the majority of creations here are based on historical facts, like real castle architecture and the like... but I'd be really interested to see some of the better builders would make after a few hours playing thief and drinking in its impressive atmosphere
The game is actually what led me here in a way. I've always like the castle sets, though I never really owned any (I was more of a star wars kind of guy) and just recently I wanted to make some thief-inspired settings for my minifigs to play in, but I realized I'm pretty crap at it. I went to brickshelf to browse the large and impressive MOCs and it led me here, and now I'm starting to get caught up in the castle craze... and also really sad that I've missed some of the better sets of the line :/
