If Tomb Raider were yet another factional action adventure, ‘adds Mac to its cheese’ might have made for a good headline. But it’s not; it’s the sensitively told tale of the grim escapades that transform Lara from perfectly lovely teen to the dead-eyed murderess we knew and loved in the ‘90s. And it’s now to be available to another neglected quadrant of PC gamers.
The port comes courtesy of the fittingly-named Feral Interactive, who do Creative Assembly’s Mac versions for them, and lately released XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Deus Ex: Human Revolution for their gleaming white platform. Pre-orders aren’t yet available, but you can sign up for updates on the developers’ site.
I don’t know whether it’s weariness for Gap Year culture or what, but between Tomb Raider and Far Cry 3 we seem to have become fond of putting young people through the wringer in far-off places. What’s that about?
