: Close, but not exactly. Core Design (part of Eidos Interactive) used the Indiana Jones movies for inspiration, but the Lara Croft character was created, by Toby Gard, long before they even planned the actual game.
: Personally, I can't imagine Indy in an action game like that. I think they should make another "point and click adventure" game like "Fate of Atlantis".
The Tomb Raider style of play is not well suited for an Indy adventure - at least not the kind I'd like to see. Most people I know who have played Fate of Atlantis still say it's their favorite computer game ever, or at least one of their favorites. A similar style game, with today's technology, would be incredible! But as I've said before, LucasArts has made Star Wars into a figting game, among other incarnations, so I guess nothing is sacred with them anymore. While fans would love to have a movie-like adventure for Indy, the programmers seem to think that "Hey, we've ripped-off every gameplay genre so far, but not Tomb Raider!" Who else to do it (in their minds) but Indy?
If you need me, I'll be busy playing Fate of Atlantis again.... :)
