[ August 28th 2003 ]

The Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association has awarded Lara Croft creator Toby Gard with an inaugural place in ELSPA's new Hall Of Fame, a distinguished Who's Who initiative aimed at honouring game designers and creators who have made pivotal contributions to the UK games industry, Games Paper reports. Tomb Raider, developed by Derbyshire-based studio Core Design, is one of the video-game industry's most potent franchise with 30 million unit sales to date and two major motion pictures starring Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie.

Although dogged by recent problems surrounding the release of The Angel Of Darkness on PS-2 and PC coupled with a controversial decision by publishers Eidos Interactive to port development to U.S. based studio Crystal Dynamics, the Lara Croft Tomb Raider phenomenon is still expected to leave an indelible mark on the video-game industry for many years to come, with a third movie planned for summer 2005 supported by a new Tomb Raider video-game in the same year.
