Lara Croft Game Designers Throwing Birthday Party

LA PAZ, Bolivia (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Valentine’s Day isn’t the only big event happening on Tuesday. It’s also the birthday of video vixen Lara Croft.

Currently, Croft is “on location” in La Paz, Bolivia, working on the upcoming video game Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend, and while producer Morgan Gray refuses to reveal her exact age, he does plan on throwing her a party.

Gray says game designers are dyeing their hair blonde for kicks and eating some birthday cake in her honor.

Then it’s back to work – a lot of it. The new game is taking advantage of technological advances that apply real physics to the digital world so that actions like punching someone or falling off a cliff are more realistic than ever.

However, Gray is most excited about the actual performance of the video character. He says Angelina Jolie’s film version has allowed viewers to understand the character’s inner soul and cynicism and the new game will play on that “real acting” more than before.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend will hit stores on April 11.
