Some Excerpts

Do you run a Tomb Raider fansite or blog? If so, what would you say was your biggest achievement to date?

Though I don’t have such site/blog, I have an art-related blog, relativelysimple.tumblr.com, which I also use to promote TR’s early beta videos, promotional images & magazine articles about it.

How has Tomb Raider changed your life?

It was the first 3D game that I really enjoyed. Back then, I used to play a lot with my Sega Game Gear. Naturally, all games were 2D. When I got a Playstation 1, it was a big adventure to me! It made me think that some life challenges are possible to achieve. TR had a very ‘realistic’ approach to the human universe. The locations, the sound effects, the amazing soundtrack…it was all very appealing! :)

What are your thoughts on Lara’s image? Is she simply the product of a sexist gaming industry or can she be seen as a positive role model?

I always thought that Lara was beautiful. Not in a ‘real beauty’ way but appealing! She was sexy, she could defend herself, she was independent, well-educated, she had a beautiful accent. She was what I think every woman or man should be: adventurous, capable of great things…cunning! :-)
