Art of Underworld Promo

Good news & bad news.   The bad news is that we've been side-tracked and had to put the development of the book down for the moment.   The good news is that we were asked to produce the pre-order incentive Art of Tomb Raider: Underworld promo booklet.

The 72-page booklet is 8.5 inches by 5 inches and comes with pre-orders of the upcoming release of Tomb Raider: Underworld and can be found at outlets like Barnes & Noble and Gamestop.   It features a sample of what will be included in the complete volume as well as a Foreword by Creative Director for Underworld, Eric Lindstrom and the "Evolution of Lara Croft" by Crystal Dynamics Art Director, Darrell Gallagher.   It also includes a discount for the Prima/Piggyback Walkthrough guide.  Definitely a deal!

Now, we can resume work on the complete collection!

Angel of Darkness Odds and Ends

Special thanks to Mark Garcia of for sending us some unique items for the book.    The rarities include some character and level editor screens as well as this wireframe transition of Kurtis Trent wielding his "weapon."   Don't be cheeky!   Hopefully someone can remind me what the weapon is, cuz I seem to have forgotten.

And this odd image of Lara playing footie.  Everyone knows the Brits invented the game, but I don't remember anything in Ms. Croft's bio about being a football hooligan.  Perhaps at boarding school?
