This October Lara Croft goes to see the underground beauties out in the world. There is a lot worth discovering. Owing to warm springs there is also abundant vegetation… She would not disclose to me where this is situated though.
Lara Croft is in search of something, too, in all sorts of places. Where the steppe ends and the forest begins, she has left the sun behind. And what lies ahead? In any case, she will keep her guns at the ready…
Later this year, Square Enix will present us with a new, totally different game for Android and iOS devices:
According to Square Enix Montéal, Lara Croft will roam through overgrown ruins, researching the myth of the Queen of Venom. However, with its isometric perspective and new, humble optics, the game seems to differ a lot from typical game titles of the series already on first sight.
The gameplay, too, will differ a lot in Lara Croft GO. Apparently, Lara won’t be able to make her own personal way, but moves on a predetermined, non-linear route with obstacles and riddles instead. Rather than focussing on action, the game will feature tricky puzzles to be solved accompanied by a very relaxing soundtrack.
The other day, I was riding home on a train, feeling too exhausted from university and work to indulge in specialised literature, so instead, I picked up pen and paper and just started drawing to pass the time. A few days after that, I found myself in a very similar situation, only this time, a small idea came along…
Afterwards, I colourated the images on my computer, and here’s your comic in between. It is still uncertain whether or not there will be more of those in the future. I guess there might be one or two ideas ready to be drawn at some time when there’s a short fall in concentration again. Well, who knows, let’s see…
Full moon… we currently have (about) a full moon! It somehow keeps casting a spell over all of us. Even Lara Croft is still up late at night to take a look at it.
A (genuine) full moon will occur July 2nd, at 04:20 in the Sagittarius constellation. The night from the 1st to the 2nd of July will be the shortest night of a full moon this year. The full moon will be at the zenith in the lowest possible angle then. By the 31st there will already be another night of a full moon. The Earth’s moon will be fully visible at 12:43 in the Capricornus constellation. When there are two night’s of a full moon within a month, the US-Americans call the second one a “blue moon.” It isn’t actually blue. However, the term, the whence of which is a matter of debate, has been vernacularised anyway. The saying “once in a blue moon” (meaning “very rarely”) goes back to this.
On the night of the 16th of July at 03:24 there will be a change of the moon towards a new moon. The moon will be at perigee by the 5th, so that it will be closest to the earth with a distance of 228.099 Miles. In contrast, by the 21st it will be at the farthest point from the earth, with an apogee of 251.555 Miles.

This time, the present image is presented to you early, for once. Lara Croft is on her way to a gathering that is held annually in her honour. If she manages to cross this trappy forest before June 4th, she might still be able to make it there in time! Wallpaper June 2015, 1920×1080Calendar June 2015, 1920×1080 The Tomb Raider Meeting truly is a highlight every year. It constitutes an event for all those who play Tomb Raider or Tomb Raider custom levels, those who either like geocaching already or are inclined to give it a try, those who enjoy games, riddles and genial evenings and fancy spending three days in the company of like-minded people. There are still spaces available for this year’s meeting. So if you are interested, you will find further information here:
Some while ago, I skimmed through my old school notes. While disposing of most of it, I found a few things I deem interesting enough to share here.
How much did I have to catch up on when I entered a rural primary school after second grade? But the air was easier to breathe here. My school certificates from that time read comments like: settled in well, fertile imagination, caring and outgoing, yet many a time deliberately breaking school rules.
I wonder if that was an adverse effect Lara had on me? After all, back then I currently played my first PC adventure game: Tomb Raider 2. Well, I can’t be sure if it affected me in that manner. It may be true that the central character of the Tomb Raider series is not known for her doing things by the book. However, she didn’t exactly have an exemplary function for me then.
It’s Valentine’s Day again and thus we also celebrate Lara Croft’s birthday. I wonder if her loyal butler Winston will find some valentine card among the mail, when sorting it by categories such as birthday cards, bills and letter bombs. With regard to her love life, Lara sure plays close to her chest…
