Special Feature in GamesTM Magazine

I’ve once again been approached by Future plc to help them with their special 200 issue of GamesTM Magazine. They wanted to explore the original Tomb Raider in a special feature article. I also got a mention 😉 Just got this in WH Smith 😁

Special Feature in Retro Gamer Magazine

 

I am absolutely delighted and honored to be featured in this magazine and I am extremely proud to say that I helped to make this special 20 years of Tomb Raider article happen.

Retro Gamer is a British magazine, covering retro videogames. It was world’s first magazine to be devoted entirely to the subject.

Featuring in the Rise of the Tomb Raider’s Credits

My blog makes an appearance in Rise of the Tomb Raider’s credits 🙂

E3 2015

The adventure begins.

Microsoft and Crystal Dynamics invited me to attend their presentation for Rise of the Tomb Raider at E3! Microsoft is paying for my trip to Los Angeles and accommodation at the Hilton Hotel by Universal Studios. I’ll be documenting the whole trip; posting daily updates and also releasing written articles and a special video report shortly after I’m back in the UK. I’ll try to be as fair and balanced (but not in the Fox News way) as possible in my review articles too! Stay tuned for more info. I have created a special E3 Ambassador 2015 page on my website that I’ll be updating with media on a regular basis.

PS. The video report will feature a special guest doing some voice overs;Shelley Blond (the original Lara Croft voice actress) 😀

Read the official statement here 

Shelley Blond – Behind the Voice of Lara Croft
Shelley Blond was the first voice-actress for Lara Croft, lending her voice to the Croft character in the original Tomb Raider game. The New York Times claimed her dulcet tones were “sexier than Kathleen Turner as Jessica Rabbit”. She was also several character voices in the computer game Black & White.  Here’s an exclusive interview with her!
Interview with Jill de Jong

Jill de Jong was the last model that represented the original Lara Croft by Core Design. Today she kindly agreed for an exclusive interview with me!

Interview with Andy Sandham

Andy Sandham was involved in majority of Tomb Raider games by Core Design. He was an artist, level designer and a scriptwriter throughout his work on Tomb Raider series. And today he kindly agreed to an interview with me.

 

Interview with Heather Gibson
Heather Gibson was one of the major level designers for the original Tomb Raider and its first sequel. She designed a lot of levels including Lara’s manor – the full list of levels Heather created is below the interview. In this interview she unearths some very exciting facts never told before! We would like to thank Heather for sparing her time to answer all these questions (we had a lot to ask!)
Also, Level Editor fans – take some notes for a possible Winston mod!
