Kleine Kuriositätensammlung

Wie viele von Euch sicher wissen, haben die Programmierer von Dark Project für ihre Fans im ersten und zweiten Teil an versteckter Stelle jeweils eine kleine Zitatsammlung hinterlassen.
Hier könnt Ihr sie in Ruhe lesen, falls sie Euch im Spiel nicht in die Hände gefallen sind.
Weiter unten hab ich noch ein paar andere lustige Kleinigkeiten aufgelistet.

Quotes from the Dark Team during the development of Thief: The Dark Project

Chris: "I don't feel like a nut. Earlier I had no choice."

Mahk: "I should do work. Someone bring me my computer."

Tom: "You know, you're lucky I'm not wearing a g-string."

Chris: "Yeah, well, it's better to suck half as much."
Greg: "...than never to have sucked at all."

Mahk: "Woo-hoo! Woo-hoo! I'm the bug fairy!"
Tim: "You're half right."

Dorian (to Mahk): "Where ya goin' with that pumpkin, son?"

Mahk: "Yeah, I just save cows."

Doug: "Just think, around November 5th, it will be tragically funny and suicidally grim no matter what."

Dorian: "Doncha be quotin' me, ya scurvy land-lubber! Arg!"
Randy: "Uh, pirates don't say 'quote.'"

Randy: "It could use some paprika"
Chris: "Paprika's the happy spice!"

Mahk: "I want to take damage, and possibly even shout when I take damage."
Dorian: "That can be arranged.“

Dorian: "You know, I'm wearing tights right now."

Tim: "Mahk, you are one queer-ass freak."
Mahk: "You know, part of me wishes that that's the first time someone's told me that this week."

Mahk: “I don't know which flow brushes to delete. I suggest you just blast them all and let God sort them out."

Dorian: "When am I going to start kicking it's ass?"
Laura: "Seven to ten days."
Dorian: "But it's been seven to ten days!"
Laura: „Then you're starting to kick it's ass."

Mahk: "Why don't we all just Xerox our asses and ship THAT?"

Mahk: "So Laura says that my ranting is Environmental Sound and not Speech."
Tim: "What's that buzzing noise?"

Dorian: "It greatly affects one's workflow when one dies."

Mahk: "Guns don't kill people, slay events kill people!"

Tim: "Where does the player arm come from?"
Mahk: "Well, there's a mommy player arm and a daddy player arm.."
Tim: „...and they both love each other very much. And the daddy player arm has a seed..."

Tim: "It may be that he finds the sound of the arrow entering his body slightly suspicious."

Mahk: "Qu'est-ce que c'est le frequency, Kenneth?"

Doug: "Is map.pcx you?"
Mahk: "Uh, it's not identically me..."
Doug: "Well, I didn't mean it in the 'is map.pcx in his office' sense".

Mahk & Doug: "You're a Newtonian grinder!"
Chris: "I'm a what?"
Mahk: "It's like an organ grinder, but without the monkey."

Dorian: "You should have five servings of fruit a day."
Ken, endearingly: "Dorian, you're MY fruit of the day."

Tim: "We want the endgame to be the climax of the mission. And you can't sustain a climax for 45 minutes. At least I can't."

Doug: "It may be stupid, but it's a well-oiled stupidity."

Tim: "It has a certain 'Je ne sais quoi', but I don't know what it is."

The Management: "The team bananas will be kept in my office until they ripen, so that Mike doesn't eat them. Thank you."

Nate: "I had four of these [points to BIG cup] full of coffee today, and actually saw and spoke to God...and he likes how the project's going."

Laura: "My arm won't come off!"

Tim: "It all came down to sheep."

Tim (to Kate): "I revoke your brain!"

Kate: "Your arm's only physical when you're thinking about it."

Tim: "There are no 'licking' attacks in this game."

Kate: "It's an unnatural thing to get back up from the dead anyway."

Mahk: "The physics system is a harsh mistress."

Randy: "Dorian is literal about everything."
Dorian: "No I'm not...'everything' is too strong a word to use."

Dorian: "Nobody uses the word 'ruly'."
Tim: "I know, I'm just feeling gruntled."
Dorian: "Next thing you know, you'll be plussed."

Kate: "It's his butt that has the velocity."

Mahk: "Yeah, I get killed all the time, these days."

Greg: "Hey! Where'd the humans go?"

Tim: "I'm very wary of the dangers of stacking objects, myself."

Guard: "Enough dancing!"
Dorian: "More singing!"

Greg: "There's a fine line between serenity and ennui."

Mahk: "If you're talking about me, I didn't touch the brain."

Tim: "[It's] like fingernails on the chalkboard of your soul."

Doug: "In my level, I've been using a bush and a rolling pin as a lockpick."

Mahk: "The quote list sure isn't going to help me convince my mom that I'm not gay."

Chiefdreams - Christmas Poker


Tim: 'I'm perfectly willing to screw the zombies for the patch.'

Randy: 'Why cheese? Why not barrels or crates or something?'
Emil: 'The apples were too small.'

Randy: 'You can imagine the gruesome hack that we would have to do.'
Tim: 'Yes, but we'd have to hire professionals to forgive us.'

Mark (re: undercurrents of sexual tension between G & V): 'Its like medieval Moonlighting.'

Emil (re: A guard who saw him from far away): 'Oh man, he's been taking his beta-carotene!'

Mark (to Matt): 'Are you talking about monkeys AGAIN?'

Tim: 'Remember, spelt backwards, that's 'NEgah,' not 'NAgah.'

Emil: 'See, he's limping because I shot him in the leg.'
Terri: 'So shoot him in the other leg.'

Mark: 'Kill the chubby kid!'

Bill: 'He's more curvy than I thought.'
Terri: 'It's ok to have those feelings.'

Garrett: 'The city looks almost bearable from up here.'
Terri: 'God, what a cynic! Have a beer, Garrett.'

Mike C.: 'I'm really excited about rain, snow, and falling rain.'
Randy: 'Sounds like a James Taylor song.'

Alex: 'I can now drop a piece of cheese on the floor and mouse-look through it.'
Pat: 'You have a cheese with mouse-look?'

Alex: 'Did the Trickster get eaten?'
Emil: 'No, I'm going to devour him later tonight in a drunken rage.'

Emil (re: his wife's due date): 'The baby's in beta.'

Mike C.: 'I just think its fun to walk up behind Alex and hit him with a blackjack.'
Randy: 'Exactly, it's social!

(a radio plays faintly in the next room)
Terri: 'Do you hear a radio playing faintly somewhere, with a woman's voice?'
Emil: 'It's the voice of Viktoria. In your head.'
Tim: 'It's your muse.'
Terri: 'My muse isn't very helpful; I can't understand what she's saying.'

Randy: 'I like sunlight and all, I just don't like the hours it occurs in.'

Dan K: 'I have a bunch of bugs for the programmers. That's my job to keep them from their families.'

Rob: 'Once upon a time, not only would Dromed crash, but it would go out and kill your family afterwards.'
Mahk: 'I thought we took out that code.'

Bug 701: 'Boor13(126) not attached to wall at hinges.'
Tim: 'Yes, there's nothing more boorish than not being attached at your hinges.'

Kevin C.: 'I was confused. It worked exactly like I wanted it to, so I thought it must be broken!'

Terri: 'Are there any weird ramifications to me taking some mushrooms....'
Randy: 'Hold on, I have to add something to the quote list.'

Karras on the Loudspeakers: 'Seest thou ever the circus, Garrett? 'Tis a most uncomely spectacle, with mischievous clowns and daring trapeze. And in the end, naught is ever built...'

Terri: 'Well, if it looks good enough that you don't even notice there's nothing to do, that's a start!'
Tim: 'That's the kind of thing you kind of want to put on the quote list and kind of want to keep off.'

Emil: 'Ok, I'm not going to get rid of my spider, but I will make him friendly.'

Emil: 'You WERE trying to look up her skirt.'
Dan K.: 'Well, I just wanted to see if it could be done. You have to throw the remote camera just right so it goes under their phys models,
but it slides too far, and the noise alerts them and then they move around... it's really tough.'

Pat: 'Are you Beer Claus?'
Dan K.: 'Yes, have you been a good little programmer this year? Ho ho ho.'
Pat: 'Yes! Yes!'

Dan K: 'So, when we put in 2, we used to crash, because 3 isn't there anymore, but now Framed, which is 4, is 2.'
Alex: 'Right.'
Dan K: 'So Courier, which is 5, is 4?'
Alex: 'No, Courier is 3.'
Dan K: 'This is idiotic.'
Alex: 'But note that when you get to 12 and 13, they're actually 12 and 13.'
Dan K: 'Right, but 16 is 14 and 15 is 11, so that's not actually helpful.'
Terri: 'What about mission 10, is that 10?'
Alex: 'No, it's 8. Unless we shift everything up by a number, in which case it will be 9.'

Dan T. (to Terri): 'Liar, liar, plants on fire.'

Kevin C.: 'Frog beast, I choose you!'

Sara: 'Really, when you think about it, our rating should be 'immature.'

Alex: 'It goes along with the bugs 'playtesters can't spell'. And 'designers can't spell'.'
Randy: 'What, and programmers are some kind of spelling aces? What'd you take first prize at the spelling bee, programmer?'
Dan K.: 'What are you gonna do, go cry to Bill Farquhar?'
Randy (pretending to be Alex): 'The other disciplines are picking on me!'

Alex to Randy: 'You know if you kill Emil with laughter you get his bug list.'

Randy: 'You should try a game development cycle. It's about as unfulfilling as giving birth to twins.'

Laura: 'Ohhh!'
Alex: 'What!?'
Laura: 'My severed head is talking!'
Rob: 'Quote list!'
Randy: 'I'm already on it.'

Alex: 'What is 'ping stim'?'
Terri: 'Come here and I'll show you.'

Emil: 'I'm falling behind on my quotes, I have to say something witty...'

Alex: 'It's very different.'
Tim: 'It's very different in what way?'
Alex: 'It's not the same.'

Rob: 'Randy, you have alarms in Bank, right?'
Randy: 'Yea...'
Rob: 'How do you refer to an alarm system?'

Randy (to box of cereal): 'The bee looks like a wizard with no pants on.'

Randy: 'You're very acute.'
Dan K.: 'Thank you.'
Rob: 'I think he wants to shag you!'
Randy: 'Yes, thank you, Rob.'
Rob: 'Oh.'

Alex (to Tim): 'Permit me to call you a filthy liar, even though you are not lying.'

Terri: 'Ok, tell me about the flies....'
Emil: 'Well, see, I've been in crunch and I haven't had time to bathe.'

Tim: 'You'll have to excuse me. I'm going to go kiss Mike Ryan now.'
Bill: 'Again?'

Tim: 'There's no problem that can't be solved with a dead body.'

Tim: Yes, there's nothing like an amusing room brushing pun. And those things were nothing like amusing room brushing puns.

Bill: 'No, that doesn't make me laugh, Steve. If it was someone else's problem, I might laugh.'

Emil: 'The bug said 'This object Terri won't sit down''.
Terri: 'Ok, she's not an object.'
Randy: 'Yea, don't treat Terri like an object.'"

Vogelfreis Southpark-Garrett

Was ich persönlich sehr witzig finde, sind die versteckten Dateien auf den CD's.
Zum einen könnt Ihr hier mehrfach den "echten" Garrett bewundern, den man hier auf dem Screenshot freundlich in die Kamera lächeln sieht.

Garrett: Sein wahres Gesicht

Ja, es ist wahr, der Mann war die meiste Zeit seines Lebens ein grinsender Lebkuchen, aber macht Euch nichts draus. Er ist mit Sicherheit der geschickteste Lebkuchen, der je einen Kurzbogen besass...

Die Entwickler von Dark Project haben sich auch die Mühe gemacht, die in den Spielen vorkommenden Bildern einmal nachzuzeichnen und sie beweisen ein wirklich beachtliches Talent.

Auf den CD's verstecken sich auch eine Menge Vorlagen für die Architektur und die Objekte in den Spielen, vom Relief angefangen über Teppiche und Häuserfronten. Ein paar hab ich Euch unten mal herausgesucht.

Vogelfrei: Thiefavatar

Macht einen etwas verwirrten Eindruck, der Kleine, etwa so wie ich, als ich das erste Mal in den Katakomben feststellte, daß die Karte weg ist...
