w00t. I'm off on holiday next week! (I'm going to San Diego and then taking a road trip up the coast to San Fran. I've got loads planned; couple of gigs, Giants baseball game, sight seeing, it should be amazingly awesome).

Aaaaanyway, the cool thing is my trip culminates with a visit to Crystal where I will drop-in, say hi to the guys and talk about important Tomb Raider community things *ponders and strokes chin*

I'm definitely planning on writing up an account of my visit, complete with photos of the offices and everything so look out for that.

Before I go, I thought I'd ask you lot: are there any questions, or is there anything you'd like to know about Crystal, the offices, the people? It'll be a good chance for you guys to get to know the team.

Give it some thought and let me know if you can think of anything (serious or silly) and I'll do my best to find out http://e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/sherlock.gif

(And between you and me, if they have any cool goodies lying around I'll try and steal them as competition prizes as well, but we'll have to see about that :pi: )

Want to know why the games look so grey in comparison to the concept art. :pi:

We have our first question, I will ask it you know!

'And this one comes from Angelus, who wants to know if.... '

Be scared, here they come. http://www.planetsmilies.com/smilies/evil/evilgrin0002.gif

1. Could you take a picture at the front of the Building please.

2. Ask them if Toby Gard is around and is he working on TRU.

3. How did they get the Licence for Tombraider.

4. Why did they made TR Legend so short and easy and kiddy safe with things all shiny and Hints everywhere with the two most annoying Characters to date. Do they know the History of Tombraider and how the Game Series really was back in the days of Core.

Oh... a Crystal webcam. That's actually an awesome idea! We'd have to make sure it didn't show anything you're not supposed to see though.

I'll certainly find out the numbers for you.

And thanks :)

Thanks, I might have room in my suitcase but I could have an issue at customs 'Sir you have an undeclared Finnish person in your baggage'.

Hmm... that's directly related to the game, we'll be doing other stuff to cover that kind of thing. But I'll see what I can do.

I guess, but you could just ask about how they got the job and how long have they been working in art design and such. Doesn't need to be game related.

Here's a serious one *giggle*:

How far ahead do you [Crystal Dynamics] plan the TR games? Legend came out in 2006, then Anniversary came out in 2007 and a brand spanking new current gen TR game will be out at the end of the year. Do you know what story you wanted to tell and how it would pan out when you made Legend?

Can you put in a word about the original Tomb Raider source code? We desperately need it as shown here:

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=110845

It would be appreciated, like...big time ! :D Our moderator Titak has wrote a letter to them via Email but we have heard nothing. It would mean the world it really would.

If we had it, we could supass this:

Two serious questions for CD. :)

1. When it was announced to you that you were going to make a TR game, what was the general reaction from the people who work for you?
2. When you were told you were going to remake Tomb Raider 1, did you have any idea that Core Design had created their own version of it?

Have a great trip Keir. :wve:

Thanks! I'm dead excited, I've never been to San Fran before, but everyone I've spoken to who have say it's lovely.

Lmao! I'll pay you to ask it! :vlol:

Hehe, no need! Consider it asked :vlol:



1. Could you take a picture at the front of the Building please.

2. Ask them if Toby Gard is around and is he working on TRU.

4. Why did they made TR Legend so short and easy and kiddy safe with things all shiny and Hints everywhere with the two most annoying Characters to date. Do they know the History of Tombraider and how the Game Series really was back in the days of Core.

1. Yes!

2. I will get a photo of him if he is around.

3. Mmm... I can ask how that came about.

4. Wait till you see Underworld before you ask that.

Is Dan Cabuco working on TRU? What about the rest of the LoK team?

Noted.

2. Will the TRA storyline continue?
3. Have they a wisp of an idea for the next TR game after TRU?

Sorry if my questions sound silly, they are all I want to know, especially the first one :o

Is there a possibility of a special chat event - maybe one set up by yourself or the guys at Crystal Dynamics (just as a note here, I actually wrote Christmas there before realising what I had wrote and so had to change it to Crystal Dynamics :p) - where we can interact with them? Or is there a chance they could interact with us here?

I remmeber being at a chat event with Morgan Gray. I said I'd make him a certificate for having good taste in games, I never got to give it to him :(.

Anyway, while I'm sure the community appreciates you and Jay, the information has to be passed on and we all know information can be lost or misunderstood as it's passed on, so for someone who works on the game and is able to directly relay the information I think would help ease a lot of people's minds. Or at least make us feel we're being heard (errr... read :)).

Oooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh

...

And ask them... no, scream the loudest you can down their throats, that Dingaling is demanding a new Pandemonium and Gex game.

I was actually more curious about what they think of us.. There are so many useless posts bashing at Crystal for no reason (don't get me wrong, I'll probably never play Legend again and I think criticism is important).. - although I'll admit it's going better :)

Perhaps if some members posted more thoughtfully they wouldn't be afraid to drop by and say 'hi' once in a while :)

I'd like to know why they decided to "reboot" the series after AOD (that is, if they decided to "re-boot" the series, and not Eidos), and why their Tomb Raider games bear hardly any resemblance to Core Design's Tomb Raider games. I hope I don't sound rude here, I'm just interested, and I'd appreciate it if you asked them.

Are they planning on another game in the Legacy of Kain series. (Sorry. I have no faith that TR will return to its glory days, and won't buy the next installment.)

BUT if they can manage a good story line in a new LoK I'll buy (even without Amy Hennig).

Edit: Any other questions I have probably can't be answered due to non-disclosure agreements or something like that. If you can get an answer, I would like to know what Legend's original story was before it was rewritten to include Lara's past :)

1. Will Kurtis Trent be back in TRU or future tomb raider games? If not, will he get his own spin-off game? The fan base has been quite faithful and strong throughout the years, it's a waste not to utilize this character as a whole.

2. Will Croft Manor be more fun like
- adding a kitchen + freezer to lock up Winston,Zip or Alister
- shootable/kickable Winston,Zip and Alister
- quad bike circuit like tr3
- more secret rooms

Thanks.

p/s: Please keep Lara's braid as it is her trademark. Sometimes things doesn't need to be change.

my question (if there's time):
What kind of input device hardware are they using for their 3D modeling? specifically, what kind of mouse do those people prefer and do they use Spaceballs or a similar type of 3D controller?

I'm genuinenly interested in knowing what they use to make their day to day modeling and rendering more efficient.

Thanks!

Thanks so much Keir, have a nice trip. Happy weekend and good job!. http://trsaga.com/foro/Smileys/ico/abrazo.gif

-I'd like to know if you have intention to retake the AOD project that Core left, continue that half-finished story that left many fans disappointed because they don't know what happened to Kurtis and the Nephilim?

-Can we know how many levels will have TRU, and if Amelia will appear?

-We will know more about Lara's past in TRU?

Thanks. http://trsaga.com/foro/Smileys/ico/beso.gif

------------------------

About Core's work, it was really amazing, just like Toby Gard's amazing creation, giving Lara Croft a unique personality.

Crystal is doing a very good job, and they are reaching the fans's heart, "It's good to know that in the end, Tomb Raider didn't end in bad hands and being just one game more in the market".

I hope that you take the good way in TRU and get many earnings, I really wish you all the best of the lucks.

It's told in another site that CD has (or had) some kind of archive about the games. Things that were cut included: guns, levels (or parts of it). Can they tell us that info about TR:L?
Have a good time, Keir;)

When will you be back Keir and are you going on Holiday or on business for Eidos.

I hope you get Business Class with a bed, because i sat on one of those tight chairs with a baby crying next to me FOR 18 HOURS. :eek:

Something tells me you exactly be told what you aren't allowed to know,lol,but,in case you can find out something,you might ask a tad more about the plot :D!

I'm back on the 28th of this month. Well, it's a personal holiday for fun, but I figured that as I'm over there I should use the opportunity to visit Crystal :D

Hehe, I already know a lot more than I can say :D But I'll see if I can get some inside info that I can release :pi:

I just had a brilliant idea. :jmp:

Keir, could you please please for the love of all that is good, ask Crystal that when they are done with TRU and hopefully it gives closure to the 2 Series http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=123752 that when they decide to make the Next TR Game if they could Remake TR Angel Of Darkness and continue its follow up Games that were supposed to be made. :o

I think i speak for the Fans that we all want TRAOD again and in 2012 they can make a Tombraider 2 remake Game. :p

I'm a great AoD fan, but I don't think CD should continue/remake it, it was great as it was, and I just don't think CD got the right formula yet to continue AoD, maybe in the future they do :)

I'm back everyone! Woohoo!

Thanks for all the nice wishes everyone! I had a great time. We drove up the coast from San Diego (in a 4.8 litre Mustang :D ) on the 101 and 1. Stopping in places like Hollywood, Santa Barbara, Monterey, Santa Cruz, and finally in SF. It was really great.

Anyway, my visit to Crystal was basically awesome. They're a great bunch and the studio has a really exciting and positive atmosphere. Everyone was really friendly to me too. I got to have some great chats with the people there like Eric Lindstrom, Troels Folmann and Toby Gard. I asked all your questions and took a ton of photos, so you can expect a cool write up that I'll pass onto Justin or post up here soon.

I spent most of my time discussing some really cool stuff we've got planned for the next few months, and Crystal are really excited about working on stuff for the community, so watch this space!

Nah, on a serious note, welcome back and I'm happy you enjoyed yourself, both in and outside whatever building Crystal's working from..

Thanks guys!

Since you were in Santa Barbara did you see Michael Jackson's defunct home Neverland?


glad your back :)

Can't say that I did see Neverland. I wasn't aware that it was near there. I must say that Santa Barbara is a lovely little town. It's really relaxed and chilled out. Some lovely bars and café's and a beautiful sea front.

This is seriously GREAT news, Keir. I really, really appreciate it. I'd send you a cake if it didn't cost too much to send one overseas.

LOL! Cake! : )*

Hehe, the Mustang was great! Really nice cars. It belongs to my gf though so I don't think she'd be too happy if I sold it to you :D

I'll compose my little report in the next day or two so watch this space.

LOL, I know Troels and Eric read the forums on a daily basis. I did ask the question what do they think of the community here, and they love to get the feedback from people.

Lots of pics of the offices! I won't say much more just yet though because I don't want to spoil my write up :)

Really??? :mis:
Is their job seeing their games being sooooo criticized?
Fortunately we're an innocent community of penguims, so all we do is break the ice to ask a few questions about TR games... and others too....

Btw did u ask something about Legacy of Kain?
