Let’s keep talking about games today, what do you say? We talked about classic Mac games on sale at GOG.com, and you just can’t look back to the ’90s without mentioning Tomb Raider II. When Aspyr released it for Mac OS, it single-handedly rejuvenated Mac gaming. Now, Feral Interactive announced this week they’ll be bringing the Tomb Raider reboot from Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix to Mac OS X.
We don’t have a lot of details yet. The Tomb Raider minisite is incomplete, offering just a trailer and this quick synopsis:
When a young Lara Croft sets off in search of a lost island, she gets more than she bargained for when shipwrecked on its hostile shores. Lara soon learns that she’ll need to be more than just an enthusiastic adventurer if she’s to uncover the island’s terrible secrets, save her friends and escape with her life.
The gripping story of Lara’s evolution from amateur explorer to battle-hardened survivor will arrive on the Mac later this year in Tomb Raider, the acclaimed series reboot.
In other words, this is Lara Croft before she became Lara Croft, because who doesn’t love a good origin story?
I’d post the trailer here, but you really should go check it out at Feral. While you’re there, you may want to look into Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Tomb Raider: Underworld. If you haven’t played them (what!?) they’ll give you a good idea of who Lara Croft became before you get to learn how she became her.
Then, we’ll keep you posted on the game’s progress as announcements are made.
