So, I picked up an inexpensive copy of Thief and finally getting around to playing it. While I'm playing, the edges and corners of my screen have a darkened overlay on them. Why does the game do this? Does this provide some meaning to me? Am I sick? Am I poisoned? Is this a game mechanic?

If it doesn't mean anything, how do I get rid of it?

  • I'm guessing the vignette graphics option is still enabled. – Nolonar Nov 26 '14 at 0:11
  • There really isnt a solid answer for why. You should probably ask how to get rid of it instead. – user92937 Nov 26 '14 at 0:14
  • I was wondering if it is supposed to provide some meaning, like: "I'm sick with poison and need to take care of it." That's the why part of my question. – mawcsco Nov 26 '14 at 1:27
  • Have they been darkened from the very start? Only during night time? Etc. – Jarrod Mosen Nov 26 '14 at 2:16
  • I've only played a couple hours and I'm pretty sure it's been there from the beginning, or at least since after the tutorial mission. – mawcsco Nov 26 '14 at 14:05
