T2X META GAME
T2X: SHADOWS OF THE METAL AGE
T2x: Shadows of the Metal Age is a massive expansion pack for Thief2.
Built by a talented group of avid fans of the Thief games, T2x expands the realm of Thief with a story spanning 13 new missions; boasting new characters, weapons, locations, sounds, graphics, speech and cut-scenes.

In line with the total overhaul of Thief2 that T2x proved to become, the menu screens needed to be customized as well.
All static graphics were drawn from scratch using photoshop and a pressure sensitive tablet.
Strangely enough, each animation is created using a different technique:
- The waves of the opening are rendered in 3dsmax and afterwards shopped into the drawn art.
- The needles of the load/save page are edited frames of an original Thief2 meta game animation.
- The pumping wheel of the loading page was created frame by frame, using photoshop vector graphics
- The elemental sparks of the ingame menu were animated using flash
