Ursprünglich von einem kleinen, 6-Personen Team entwickelt, ist Tomb Raider zu einem der größten Videospiele der Welt geworden, hat 84 Millionen Kopien verkauft und wurde mehrmals von Hollywood verfilmt.
Tomb Raider is a media franchise that began life as an action-adventure video game series created by British gaming company Core Design – formerly owned by Eidos Interactive, then by Square Enix Europe.
The franchise focuses on fictional British archaeologist Lara Croft, who travels the world in search of lost artefacts – usually having to infiltrate dangerous tombs and ruins.
Toby Gard, the creator of Lara Croft, was influenced by the anarchic Tank Girl graphic novels and the Indiana Jones movies.
Gameplay generally involves the exploration of hostile environments, solving puzzles and avoiding deadly traps, hostile forces or creatures.
Development of Tomb Raider, the first video game, began in 1994 and was released on October 25, 1996. It sold over 7 million copies worldwide, spawning many sequels, movie adaptations, comic books and novels.
