Ian Livingstone will use the Edinburgh Interactive Entertainment Festival as a platform to commentate on a special feature delving into the phenomenon that is Lara Croft, from her 1996 assault onto consoles to her present day status as pop-culture icon.

According to Livingstone: "My main focus this year is a screening called The Legend of Lara Croft. I'm giving a complete history of Lara, from the very early designs right through to Tomb Raider Legend, and a little glimpse of what's happening in the future.

"It'll be a gaming history, a cultural history - looking at the power of Lara Croft, the value of Lara as one of the most famous and iconic characters in gaming, and lots of things that have happened because of Lara Croft.

"Expect lots of facts, anecdotes, and a visual feast of all things Lara - from the game designs and early game play, to things like the adverts she's featured in and how we've leveraged the IP to create merchandising and collectors items, details of the girls that have played Lara Croft over the years, and the movies.

"Basically anything and everything about the IP. It's really a showcase of ten years of Croft history. A celebration of Lara, if you like.

The full interview with Ian Livingstone is now online over at Eurogamer.
