New Tomb Raider(s) & Alice Soon
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
This month's Aspyr newsletter gave us some good updates on the status of their titles. Alice and Lara, their current leading ladies, should both be hitting shelves very soon. Tomb Raider: Chronicles is now at GM (Gold Master), meaning it's off to be put through production and shipping. This last saga in the current Tomb Raider series will include a level editor allowing you to build your own levels or download the hundreds available on the web. It will also be OS X ready, so there will be no need to boot back into OS 9. Look for more on Tomb Raider: Chronicles very soon from IMG.
The just-announced Tomb Raider: The Trilogy is also set for duplication soon. This set with repackage the original three games in the series, as well as many add-ons not before released on CD for the Mac. Here's a quick list of other improvements:
- New high-res movies for TR GOLD
- New Tomb Raider Trilogy Desktops
- Integrated installer for all games
- Each game will include the latest updates
Trilogy should be a great title for someone unexperienced with the series to get much playing time with Lara Croft. It's available now for preorder at a price of $29.95.

Not to be outdone by Lara and her new movies, American McGee's Alice is getting very close to final as well. Aspyr reports the game awaits final approval, which is expected to happen later this month. Alice will take you through the twisted depths of Wonderland in OS X and Classic, thanks to the versatility of the Quake 3 engine (and Brad Oliver of Westlake Interactive). IMG just posted an excellent preview of the game, so be sure to check it out for more information.
