London ( 11 th March 2014) Eidos-Montréal™, the developers behind THIEF™, today announced the launch of a competition looking to reward two ‘ Real Master Thieves’ with a top spec gaming PC from AMD – hopeful entrants simply need to upload a video to YouTube to win!

·         The first gaming PC supplied by AMD will be won by the very best video out there, whether it’s funny, silly, clever, creative, controversial or comical - whatever you choose; the video that entertains us the most will win!

·         The second gaming PC supplied by AMD will be won by the person who uploads the most impressive Master Thief video; the very best, most innovative, most Master Thief-ery video out there. Will you leap around in the shadows unnoticed and clear an area of loot in the quickest time possible? Will you be a predator and clear an entire area of guards in a few moves? Will you do a bit of both? The choice is yours!

·         The only thing we ask is that your video has the following words in the title “The Master Thief Competition”. That’s it.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the Eidos Montreal blog post:

BUT WAIT… THAT’S NOT ALL…

If you’re a fan of The Yogscast you’ll be interested to know that we infiltrated their HQ recently (the aptly named ‘Yog Towers’) to steal the most prized possessions belonging to their staff. If you’re a regular Yogscast follower there are plenty of nods and homages for you to enjoy!

Our real-life, building-hopping Garrett The Mater Thief is played by none other than James Kingston, the UK based nutter who you may have seen hanging from a crane recently. James Kingston’s fame as the face of urban free-climbing has been snowballing ever since his crane-hang stunt hit the internet, recently starring in Channel 4’s Don’t Look Down’ documentary in the UK. If you’d like to know more about James take a sneak peek at the online article he had in conjunction with a print piece in UK newspaper The Times or head over to jameskingston.co.uk.
