Lula Lamer who worked on all three Thief games has decided to depart Ion Storm for a career focusing on Health Care. Here is what she had to say on our forums:
Hi TTLG peeps, best fans ever:
I'm writing to say bye, because today's my last day at Ion Storm. I've got a great replacement, Denise Fulton, who has been working with me, getting up to speed for several weeks. She's a big fan of Thief and of immersive sims in general, and I know she'll do a great job leading/supporting our kick-ass team.
I'm not leaving for another game company (not sure there's a better one...), I'm making a big life/career change toward health care.
Anyway, I just wanted to say an official goodbye, and to mention that the dedication of our fan base has always been touching (as well as helpful!). I'm sorry that the last 2 communiques y'all have had from the Thief team have been departures. Good new will come soon - all I can tell you now is that the game is looking unbelievably good.
I can't wait to play Thief 3, can you!?!
