Core Q&A on Tomb Raider
10:04 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
French site Gamedata has interviewed Susie Hamilton of Core Design, with many questions related to the company's popular Tomb Raider series. The Q&A covers many aspects of the titles and the larger-than-life image of Lara Croft herself, arguably the most famous computer game character ever. Topics include the upcoming Tomb Raider movie starring Angelina Jolie (which is hoped to be an "Indiana Jones type franchise"), the current set of games available for so many platforms, and the upcoming Tomb Raider Next Generation title. Here's a clip:
Can you tell us about Tomb Raider Next Generation ? What will be the biggest change?Hamilton also discusses a little of their other game, Project Eden, which is very much unlike the Tomb Raider series. Be sure to head over and have a look at the rest of the interview. No specific mention of a Mac version of Tomb Raider Next Generation has been announced, but we're sure Aspyr is already on the case. Hopefully they will have a look at Project Eden, as well.
GameData Tomb Raider Interview
Oh, absolutely everything. Everything is redesigned. We have a brand new Next Generation engine. Lara changed, the character changed. Her statistics remain the same, but the way she looks is changed. We’re not finalized on how she’ll finally look, but she’ll be one in a series of playable characters. The whole thing is more sophisticated. It’s more grown-up. The plot is quite dark and sinister, we probably won’t even call it Tomb Raider, it will be called something different. Tomb Raider has been very successful for us, but we are very aware that people now want something different. So now, with Playstation 2, instead of pushing a new version of Tomb Raider that just looks better and has a few new features, we want to create something that is completely new. There are a lot of surprises in there for people.
