Here's a link to Carol H's TR2 thread:http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=160534to. In the linked article it mentions this man:


It says his name is "Mike" and that they like to hide his image somewhere in the level. But who is "Mike"?

I'm pretty sure that this prisoner;) has been mentioned before; I think someone even reckoned he looked like Bill Gates:D but I couldn't find the thread.

:eek: You found him!?!? Where!! :jmp:

I assumed he was Mike from those who created The Lost Artifact;

Back in the day, the Tomb Raider: Lost Artifact team - Me, Rebecca Shearin, Gary LaRochelle and Mike Schmitt - were asked this question by a magazine interviewer, and here is our answer… (Seems quite straightforward, really)

hmmm... :pi:

Aha! Thanks Minimus.:tmb:

Yes, it's Mike Schmitt. Here's an old thread that has a link to Theresa's Site, which says this and has a picture of Mike. The next post in the thread has a good pic by The Great Chi.

Mike's image is only in the demo version of Lost Artifact.

Yep, he's only in the demo. My copy of the full version of TLA is...lost.:o
Does Mike appear in any other TR levels or is this his one and only appearance?

...Does Mike appear in any other TR levels or is this his one and only appearance?

Here's a post that suggests the gold idol in the TR3 mansion treasure room is partly inspired by Mr. Schmitt. Don't post in the old thread, come back here.

I'm having a tough time with the resemblance, myself.

^Hmm...that's one smeared face.:) Can't really tell who it is but still, it is a face.;)

tricky! i love easter eggs. Yep that is a face. if it wasnt such a pain to get into that room i would drop in and take a look, i wish Lara would not make it so hard to get into some of her rooms :) I am not as limber and speedy as she is. But maybe that is the only way she can get away from Winston..other than locking him in the cooler.

In order to not have Winston mess up the attempt, you go out the front door, wait for him, then dash back inside and close the door.

heheh, ys i saw that was possible. He is such a duffer. I really got tired of him finally and locked him in the kitchen cooler, with great pleasure. I also would love to remove those unplesant noises he makes from the game but dont know how to get into those sound flies:) :tea:

this is fun to hear about, this easter egg, i will have to get the demo so i can find this. :) thanks everyone.
