Crystal Dynamics have today released The Final Hours of Tomb Raider application.
The application is out now and is available for iOS, Kidle Fire and Steam and is priced at £1.99. It comes as the culmination of a long collaboration between the studio and Geoff Keighley. It started with a documentary web series which was hosted by actor and gamer Zachary Levi with the first being launched back in July 2012.
Written over several months, the application goes further behind the scenes at Crystal Dynamics during the final year of development. It gives fans unprecedented perspective on the development and shows the key creative forces that are responsible for Tomb Raider.
Geoff Keighley stated the following:
“The Final Hours of Tomb Raider is a story about the reinvention of both a brand and a studio, This franchise reboot was itself rebooted multiple times, and now, for the first time, the team at Crystal Dynamics shares with fans the early prototypes and concepts that didn’t make it into the finished game.”
Karl Stewart, Global Brand Director of Crystal Dynamics added:
“Geoff has managed to capture the essence of a story that no one outside of the studio has ever been exposed to, In a very immersive and informative way, he has managed to bring to life the personal side of game development, something which is usually lost in the noise when bringing a game to fruition.”
