This year, Tomb Raider turns 25! To celebrate the anniversary of the iconic franchise and its main character we dive into the history of Tomb Raider and how Lara has impacted gaming and beyond. With Kate leading the way, Lara Croft is in the spotlight once again. While her game franchise has had its ups and downs over the years, Lara will always be an absolute icon in all of her iterations. In this episode, we chronicle Tomb Raider's development journey, the bad marketing choices behind the original games, and ultimately why Lara Croft still resonates today. Plus, we dive into the films and the new series from Crystal Dynamics. While we've covered the topic in the past, we're bringing in a new lens.
