FOR ANGEL OF DARKNESS

Raider creators Core Design are looking to expand
their predominately male workforce by encouraging
female gamers to apply to help the firm iron out
creases in the latest Lara Croft Tomb Raider adventure
The Angel Of Darkness and future projects.
Gary Reading told the BBC he wants to encourage
more computer literate women to apply for games
testing appointments after receiving a torrent
of applications from male gamers. "We really don't
know why women are not coming forward, but there
is a special type of logic to testing the game
and women would be very strong at it. Men and
women's brains work differently and we want every
different angle covered. A women's mind would
bring a different angle to the game."
Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness employs
a brand new engine built to fully exploit the
terrain-based power of Sony's PlayStation 2 games
console and the latest PC graphics cards. Lara
Croft returns as both hunter and hunted relying
on her ingenuity, athleticism and a new edge that
has arisen from her dark inner demons. The sixth
title in the phenomenally successful Tomb Raider
franchise is penned for release November 15th,
but mandatory teasing will probably see a December
debut more likely.
Core Design would like to thank everyone that
has applied for the position of games tester.
Unfortunately due to the enormous response we
have had to close this window of opportunity.
We can no longer accept applications for the position
of games tester. Thanks to everyone for their
interest and we hope you all like the game.
