There are so many wonderful great moments in Tomb Raider, far too many to count, but we want to remember why we do and what made certain sequences and adventures special to each one of us personally. This is the chance to bring together fans of Lara that have been with her through the games' infancy and the ones she's created today.
This contest is about the very things that make Tomb Raider special. So this begs to question: What makes Tomb Raider so important to every one of us? What has made the game unique? What makes us keep running back to Lara? So we

The second secret unlocked!Dear raiders, a month ago as a present to Lara’s BD, we created the Treasure Vault project and revealed the first secret we had prepared for you. The time to unlock the second one has finally come and we are happy to present you an exclusive collection of videos and commercials Lara appeared in. We’ve collected everything we managed to find and it turned out to be quite an impressive pile of videos so we divided it into three thematic sections which we will reveal one by one. So enjoy part one – Commercials. Two others are soon to follow!The second secret unlocked!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Keep in mind that some videos aren't of high quality given that they're really old and hard to obtain nowadays.

Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and realityReboot of Tomb Raider franchise was probably the most heatedly discussed topic over the last 4 years. We didn’t know if it would become a success or yet another fail, but there was one thing that was clear as a day – fandom split in two. One group supported and firmly believed in the reboot. The other group hated and resented the idea of it claiming that Lara Croft is dead for them now.Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and reality2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Now the game is out. It IS a success. Franchise that was on a razor edge before was saved. But there is one question that remained unanswered – did people who resented reboot change their mind or they just receded in the dark mourning over the character that is dead for them now.
Tomb Raider Empire offers you, dear loyal raiders, a little quiz that will help to make things clear. It will be really interesting for us to hear your answers on the given questions and we are sure it will be inter

"Hi - you may have read today that a next-generation sequel to Tomb Raider is in the works. We’re very excited to confirm that the team has started working on telling the next chapter in Lara’s tale. It’s still early days, so I’m afraid I can’t provide any further details for now save my assurance that we’re not resting on our laurels and acclaim from Tomb Raider’s recent successes, but working hard to raise the bar even higher and re-affirm the faith you’ve shown."

UNEARTHED - ATHENAIn today's segment of Unearthed, we're going to doing research and studying of the relic picked up in Tomb Raider: Anniversary, the Athenian Owl Figurine and the history behind it's creation.UNEARTHED - ATHENA1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
In Greek mythology, the owl is commonly associated with the goddess, Athena as the owl's own symbol represents cunning and wisdom. Daughter of Zeus and Metis, Athena is the goddess of courage, civilization, law and justice, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, inspiration and wisdom as well as skill.
Athenian Owl Figurine found in the Palace of Midas in TRA.
Athena is one of the most powerful gods in Greek mythology as her power is close to that of Zeus and in fear, he contemplated destroying his own daughter at one point.
Athena commonly helped many ancient heroes of Greece, including Heracles, Jason, Perseus and Odysseus. While not one for violence and fighting, Athena sought better means to deal with conflict and resolved issues with wisdom. And conflict
Interview with the creative director of TR!Dear raiders!Interview with the creative director of TR!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We have had the honor of participating in an interview with Noah Hughes, the creative director of TR, on a Tomb Raider event in Dubai this year!
Our dear admin Ahmad ( Orphen5 ) filmed this video in cooperation with Reno ( LaraCroftTheRaider.com ) who was asking Noah questions that every fan is surely wondering about. A lot has been revealed about the new game already, but here is some more info about elements of the game that fans (old and new) are curious about!
The video is 19 minutes long so here's just a basic transcript of the interview (if you want to hear all the additional details that the guys discussed, watch the entire thing! )

Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)"There’s angst but it’s different. I think we’re rebelling now as a rock band. We’re trying to keep it pure, but we’re not playing victims anymore. We’ve realized that we’re one of the youngest bands at our size. So there’s a responsibility that comes with that, whether it’s to fans or to outside listeners who aren’t fans, to be the greatest American rock band. That was the goal. And it took a while to get there, but we’re just being the best My Chemical Romance that we can be."Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)3 years ago in Personal More Like This

i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.

I know it would be a lot of work, with a new menu needed, etc - so I don't hold my breath ! But it would beat having to save each image and load them into a tool like Photoshop or Movie-maker to add the subtitles...

Tracing, and its legalitiesSo, interesting fun fact I found out today, everyone; Tracing isn't illegal.Tracing, and its legalities2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You read me.
Here's an example of a professional who avidly traces, making a living off of it. http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2012/06/11/muv-luv-character-designer-fired-over-tracing-controversy He worked for some anime called Muv-Luv, and there was a controversy over whether or not he traced. They even went as far as to overlay his work with the works they believe he traced from--direct match, no difference save for hair and one of the character's eyes.
Do you think he was sued? No. Jailed? Double no. He was fired, though it was stated to be solely as a public relations move--too many people got upset over him being found to have traced. But others have had the same happen to them. That same blog has a comment that mentions another artist, found tracing, who was fired--then hired by another company soon afterwards. It didn't ruin his career at all, merely set him back a bit. As long as you aren'
