We're big fans of The Dark Mod, a fan remake of the original Thief game that won our 2013 mod of the year award. Square Enix, which will soon publish the Thief reboot, is a fan as well. It just announced a partnership with Amazon for a Thief: Gold modding competition, and has directed participants to The Dark Mod if they're looking for helpful modding resources.

Amazon and Square Enix will accept short video playthroughs or written pitches for Thief: Gold mods, whether they're creating a new heist for Garrett or reworking a classic level from the series. Square Enix and Amazon will pick the winner and award him or her:

  • A high-end gaming rig from AMD which includes an AMD Radeon R9 290X graphics card
  • An all-expenses paid trip to E3 2014 with Square Enix
  • Steam code for all Square Enix Games with the matching Prima Guide
  • An Amazon Kindle DX
  • A bundle of game development books on Kindle

The best part is that all entrants get a free digital version of Thief: Gold. The contest runs through April 14, and you can find more details on Amazon.

If you haven't already, The Dark Mod is obviously worth checking out, especially since the community keeps adding more heists for you to play through. The Thief reboot releases February 25 in the US and February 28 in Europe. You can watch a full mission playthrough from the game right here.

Thank you!!

 

For those of us outside the US, enter a valid credit card (regardless of billing address) and it is accepted.  When it asks for an address enter any valid US address.  Then continue and enter the gift code.  The amount goes to $0.00, the card isn't verified and nothing is physically shipped.  Checkout complete and download away !

Yeah, Amazon is showing unavailable here too, maybe when they are available the codes will still work.

 

Tried getting this the first time around but the site was all buggy, entered my info in and it wouldn't give me a code (just kept refreshing at the main page).

Perhaps they'll replenish them every so often. Might want to retry later.

Word of advice: don't enter a fake credit number, despite being $0.00, my amazon account's just been blocked and I'm no longer able to login.

While me and GOG are at a bad junction right now, you should still check their forum for various patches/fixes/mods/enhancements starting with this topic.

[Thread cleaned]

Please keep on topic.

Recommending using bogus credit card numbers is not only against Neowin rules it will likely result in legal trouble.
