Folks, have a look at this (http://files.noctifer.net/doomtombraider.jpg). A friend of mine noticed the upper one, but when I saw another thing like it when playing the TRL demo, maybe there are more?

Does anyone know if there's any specific relation?

Welcome to the forums :)

This thread is not specific to TR1 though. *moved to gen chat*

They're actually near-exact copies, not just resemblances. Look at the second one, every shadow and space and vertebrate is exactly the same in both. I'm guessing they were put in deliberately by developers as a little joke... Wonder if it says anything in the credits about it?

A joke or just flat out copying. Wouldn't surprise me either way...

Obviously a tribute. I never noticed this before, looks like somebody at Eidos likes playing Doom (who doesn't?).

Meh, I remember the original Doom game and those textures in situ! :eek: Note to Self: must be more observant of TR textures in future :whi:

Good spot that, and welcome to the forum! :wve:

In DOOM 2 I believe in a secret area on one of the levels you can see Lara chained up in prison.

Really? I thought DOOM II came out in 1994, while Lara didn't make her debut until 1996...?? :confused:

Unless someone created a special level after TR first appeared :wve:

Yeah, she's in Shadow Warrior, not DOOM.

And if that picture is an actual screenshot, they must've changed Lara in the 3Dfx patch, because in the original it looks like this:
