Seeing one's baby all grown up

I have to say, it's a little weird seeing the preview article for Thief III. I mean, this isn't like Thief I or II, which were built on the engine I did some underpinnings for (I did the mundane but critical resource management system under the hood); it isn't even based on the Siege Engine that I was working when Looking Glass shut down, which was going to be the original basis for Thief III. In no way am I responsible for this terribly cool-looking game. And yet, there's this little frission of pride that tickles my hindbrain when I see articles about it.

I have to wonder if there's an irrational part of the brain that's programmed for parenthood, that takes pride in accomplishments performed at a remove. It's not my game, but I get to at least be one of the small army of ancestors involved in it...
