EIDOS PLC ANNOUNCES THE OSIRIS CODEX
Copyright 2003 Eidos Interactive Press Release

[ August 18th 2003 ]

Eidos, one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, announces that Lara Croft is coming to the world's biggest gaming platform with Tomb Raider: The Osiris Codex. The game has been developed by mobile games studio iomo for Java-enabled mobile phones. Tomb Raider: The Osiris Codex will be released in three parts, starting with 'The Osiris Codex' in the U.S. and Europe this autumn. It will be available through soon to be announced network operators and will feature heavily in their autumn marketing campaigns.

The game has been created as a side-scrolling platform game. Lara can perform all of her signature moves, such as running, jumping, crouching and climbing. As she progresses, Lara can pick up useful items and store them in her inventory for later use. She can also push and pull certain items within the game, to gain access to otherwise unreachable areas. Lara will of course, have her trademark pistols to hand for when the going gets tough.

Information on the game and networks will be available from the game's web site at www.tombraidermobile.com. The following Java-enabled mobile phones with colour screens will be supported: Sharp GX10, GX20, Nokia 3650, 7650, 7210, 6200 and Motorola T720. John Chasey, managing director of iomo says: "Lara Croft is quite simply the biggest star of the video games world. We are delighted to extend our relationship with Eidos and bring Tomb Raider to mobile phones and a potential audience of millions of new gamers around the world."

Simon Protheroe, Eidos' technical director says: "We wanted to work with a developer who we felt understood the franchise and could translate Lara's world onto mobile technology as sympathetically as possible. Iomo have proven they understand the technology and have created a valuable new addition to the Tomb Raider franchise."
