Tomb Raider Wanderlust: A New Digital Magazine by and for Fans

Earlier this month the webmasters of the fansite Kronika Tomb Raider launched a free digital magazine, Tomb Raider Wanderlust. The first edition, titled "In the Shadow of an Icon," was originally released in Czech, but an English language version is now available.

My Q&A style interview is just one of many conversations with TR developers and superfans, including composers Nathan McCree and Peter Connelly, writer and voice actor Jennifer Milward, cosplayers Jenn Croft and Rident, official Lara model Jill de Jong, and voice actor Shelly Blond, the first Lara Croft.

Visit Tomb Raider Wanderlust for more info and links to both the Czech and English magazines. You'll also find a video preview, social media links, and a blog with updates about current and future issues. The project is off to a great start, and I look forward to seeing what editor Jiŕí Zamarski and art director Jiŕí Benda bring us next!

New Lara Croft Funko Figures Coming Soon

This week toymaker Funko announced it will be launching two classic-inspired Lara Croft vinyl figures early in the new year. Lara joins the ranks of the chibi-inspired Funko Pop! series with this 3.75-inch dual-wielding darling releasing in late January. A 5-inch figure will also be added to the brand's Rock Candy line in February.

Much to the dismay of Tomb Raider collectors, these toys won't be available in time for Christmas, but both can be pre-ordered from Amazon or through local toy and collectibles retailers.

Talking Tomb Raider on the Staying In Podcast

I recently had the great pleasure of chatting with Kris Darby (@digitalstrider) and Sam Turner (@MrSamTurner) on an episode of their Staying In Podcast. Topics included good (and bad) chicken-rearing techniques, marathons (both real and virtual), and of course Tomb Raider. These guys are some of the smartest, most articulate, and most fun gamers I know. I hope you'll give them a listen.

Tomb Raider Suite World Tour Needs YOU!

Anyone interested in donating or receiving a ticket to Nathan McCree's Tomb Raider Live in Concert December 18 at the Eventim Apollo in London, please contact me a.s.a.p. I will attempt to connect donors and attendees in the next few days. The goal is to provide as many free tickets as possible. The larger the audience, the greater the chance that the show will be able to continue on a WORLD TOUR.

Please SHARE this with friends and fans who might be interested in going or in helping someone else attend. I've also posted on Facebook and Twitter.

To donate any amount of money or to request a ticket, go to this page on Stella's Tomb Raider site.

Check out Nathan's video appeal on YouTube and share that as well.

The number of tickets we'll be giving away will depend on how many donors we can line up. Donors do not need to give the price of an entire ticket. If you can donate even a little, that would be great.

Recipients should also know that we cannot provide transportation, so if you're interested in going, you'll need to get yourself to the show.

Lara Croft GO Launches on PS4, Vita and Steam

If you haven't played Lara Croft GO yet, well...GO! Square Enix Montréal's wonderful Tomb Raider-inspired puzzle game is now out on PS4 and Vita with a new expansion, The Mirror of Spirits, featuring exciting new puzzle mechanics set inside Croft Manor. Here's a little preview.

There's no news yet on whether the new levels will also be available on iOS and Android, and Windows Phone/PC/Tablet, but let's hope so.

UPDATE (12/4/16): The game was just release on Steam today, and I'm told that the Mirror of Spirits expansion will come to other platforms following a 3-month exclusive on PlayStation.
