The Final Hours of TOMB RAIDER

Joe Zeff Design is excited to announce a new project: "The Final Hours of TOMB RAIDER" interactive app, a continuation of the Final Hours series we designed and developed with video game journalist Geoff Keighley. The TOMB RAIDER video game franchise has sold over 35 million copies worldwide and inspired one of the most successful video game film adaptations in history, grossing over $300 million at the global box office. TOMB RAIDER is in development for a multi-platform release on March 5, 2013. Alongside the game, Crystal Dynamics will release "The Final Hours of TOMB RAIDER" interactive apps for iPad, PC and Kindle Fire, designed and developed by Joe Zeff Design.

"The Final Hours series documents the creative process behind today's most anticipated games, with a particular focus on the final stretch of development," said Keighley, in a Crystal Dynamics press release available here. "In the case of TOMB RAIDER I'm especially excited because, at its heart, this is a tale about the act of reinvention, both of a studio and of a franchise."

"The Final Hours of TOMB RAIDER" series kicked off this week with the first of a series of documentary web videos hosted by actor Zachary Levi, available here. The video series takes fans behind the scenes of development, introducing Camilla Luddington as the voice actress portraying Lara Croft in the game. There's also a website,

Joe Zeff Design previously designed and developed "The Final Hours of Portal 2" and "The Final Hours of Mass Effect 3" with Keighley. We look forward to working with him, Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics, Amazon and other partners to make "The Final Hours of TOMB RAIDER" the best yet.
