There's a few things I'd like to see added, like a sprint button but if they can continue improving it and add quality content it should turn out well.
Yeah, sprinting would be very welcome, as well as a means to illuminate dark areas (say, a lighter that gives you away obviously) because some places in-game are really dark and almost impossible to navigate.

Apparently, yes.

I guess I didn't get far enough into the game to get it.

Played the demo for a bit and all it made me think was how much I'd rather be replaying Thief 2 or an FM instead. While it ain't totally the same as Thief, I feel they tried to lift WAY too much from it, achieving varying degrees of success in doing so and never quite hitting any of the highs. Didn't find it bad by any means, it just felt a lil too much like something that already existed and while that's intentional as they're using the nostalgia approach to marketing, it's a pretty unfortunate scope in my opinion. Still, I'm gonna check in once in a while to see how development progresses.
