Hello everyone,

As you might know, Encore Studios is a group of Tomb Raider fans willing to continue where AOD has left off. But we can't do this alone and we need your opinion about certain things to help us make this game a worthy continuation of AOD.

You can help us out be simply filling in this survery (http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dFlsWjFQOVNKVFg0XzQ4Y2VtQ0NNeXc6M A).

If you have any other suggestions, questions, or want to join the team, just drop a PM!

We could still use more people on the team:
- Animators
- 3D Modellers
- Texture artists
- Scripters (Unreal 3 Editor scripting)

Thanks! :D

Filled out the form. The game ended just the way it ended. Kurtis is dead. Leave him that way please. He muddled AOD with his constant interference and I hated playing as him. Lara should be the only character we actually play with in Tomb Raider games.

Yes but I also think he should have an appearance throughout the game, caise i think it was left that way :)

In what way? As in some reflection scenes from the previous AOD or as in actually alive and kicking? The former I have no problem with, the latter I'm not so fond of as an idea.

But you would be fine with him appearing (just not as a playable character)?

I realize the ending is left open to the interpretation of each individual gamer. Everyone's going to have a different take on what that is. I know there's a lot of non-believers (as in spiritual faith) on this forum, but i interpreted the vibration of Kurtis' chirugai as meaning he was with Lara in spirit, and spirit only.

My ending was exactly what I thought, about Kurtis being dead or not and what I thought should have happened in the next game...well what I read was planned ages anyway:)

I meant maybe he could still be alive and kiciking, just that we can see him die properly :mis:

05-12-09, 02:48
Filled it out :) I put what I thought was the official plans for the ending (Kurtis and Karel are both alive, Lara goes to the German castle and the Cappadocian ruins trying to stop Karel).

I also said I like detailed graphics, FMV's, cutscenes, and story. However that's all negotiable as long as the gameplay is good :D Also, specifically with the FMV's versus cutscenes thing, I honestly have no idea which one is harder for a fan team to make, so go with whatever is easier to do and gets the point across. I have no strong preference either way as long as it's clear what is happening :)

05-12-09, 02:50
^it's probably easier to do cutscenes instead of creating high res locations and such and a different lara model and all that..

:)

True, but I was thinking that an FMV might be easier to make if it's got a kind of comic-book feel to it, like the FMV's in Oni or Mirror's Edge. I don't really recommend that style, but I'd rather have that than nothing at all :p

A funny thing in the Special Features would be good. :) I submitted mine.

oh yes:p

well I think it would still even be easier to do just ingame cutscenes.

if you think about how in the LE all you need to do to creat something close to a cutscene is place a few camera objects and set a trigger to disable lara then it would be easier then creating a whole animated cartoon, but that would be neat:)

I actually think it would suite AOD:)

05-12-09, 03:23
I don't understand what do you mean how we thought it ended? You mean the AOD1 ?

No, the third one.

Phlip
05-12-09, 03:29
Kurtis died, and so did Karel. We saw them both. It was a massive coincidence that Karel happened to be standing where he was when a random ray went right through his chest, and doubled up with the explosion which Lara barely got out of the way from and was clearly hurt pretty much definitely killed him.

There's only a fragment of possible doubt that Karel survived because apparently he's immortal, but having an enemy you couldn't kill would be stupid. And it was Kurtis who died, seeing as if it was Karel why the hell would he put on a show when no-one would have been around?

Prove it. Did 50 Cent not get shot eight times and lived? Cheap shot, I know, but the point is, Kurtis could have survived that. Natla survived the Eitr, did she not?

I filled it all. :) I just said that Kurtis is alive seeing as his body was nowhere to be seen at the end of the game, and Lara moves on to find and destroy the other Nephilims.

There (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vN0m0v97bg&feature=PlayList&p=4DB16EAB85C03DFB&index=55). We actually SEE him die.

ShadyCroft
05-12-09, 12:27
^ We see him get stabbed and pass out, but his body is gone when Lara gets back there, so it makes sense that they planned to have him be alive.
