Tombraider: How it began

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A interesting streaming documentary showing the creation of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider to how it is today...A great one for the young ones that never had the chance to experience the 1st ever Tomb Raider in those old style blocky graphics.

I remember it too well, glad technology has progressed as you will see...

I remember buying a copy of PC Gamer just because they had the new demo release of Tomb Raider (the original). I spent most of my time diving off cliffs into the water.
