The Making of Tomb Raider.
The story of the origins of Lara Croft, from 1988 to 1998, as told by the original team, alongside others who were involved in the first two games.
The story of the original team.
Back in 1994 at the game company ‘CORE Design’ in Derby, Lara Croft was born. Through eighteen months of pure hard work from the team, Tomb Raider was released in 1996 and became the success that we see today; taking part in the mid-nineties celebrations of Brit-Pop and Girl Power.
This is the story of the team who were involved in creating the first two games, then leaving the series to a new team in 1998.
It’s a book that I’ve wanted to write for almost ten years – I had an idea of how I’d go about it, and most of it has survived through to publication. Over 9 months of interviews, research and transcribing, it’s a detailed story told from the people who were there during the making of the first two games.
