146. Tomb Raider Chronicles - THE MINDS BEHIND CHRONICLES
Richard Morton, official map designer for the new Tower Block levels in the new Tomb Raider game Chronicles describes himself as being not too happy after being told his team would be making another instalment of the hit series Tomb Raider having thought that two PSX adventures would suffice. Martin Gibbins, lead programmer to the project, is a little more blatant. Extremely p****ed off, if just for the fact that it was going to be another Tomb Raider. The Team before us did the first two and said we couldn't possibly do another one. So we've done another two, really stretched ourselves and to be told we've got to do another one was a nightmare.
