Tomb Raider II Fan Remake Gets Playable Demo

Tomb Raider: The Dagger of Xian, Nicobass's fan remake of the second classic TR game has been in development for more than a year, but a few days ago a playable demo was released. Until now, we've only seen screenshots and a few short but mpressive videos, showing off bits of the Great Wall level. This demo lets players explore, find secrets, and and revel in a full-on nostalgia trip for about an hour of playtime.

Current Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics has given the project its unofficial blessing and provided a few resources to aid in the development. Generally speaking they have been very supportive of fan endeavors, provided they don't infringe on proprietary assets or operate for profit.

For more details about the project, which is being developed by Nicobass and a small team of helpers using Unreal Engine 4, visit tombraider-dox.com. A list of system requirements is included on the demo download page.

You can also follow the project on Facebook, Twitter, and DeviantArt. For video updates, subscribe to Nicobass's YouTube channel.

  1. Played the demo and can't wait to see the rest of the game! Too bad it's gonna be ages until this project is finished. :(
