툼레이더(2013)와 관련한 디지털 북이라길래 그냥 DLC 개념으로 툼레이더 폴더에 PDF 파일 하나 추가되는가 싶었는데, 아예 라이브러리에 별도의 프로그램이 등록됩니다. 거기다 단순 PDF 파일이 아니고, 어도비 에어와 플래시를 이용한 하나의 프로그램으로서 실행해보면 각 페이지 안에 동영상이나 이미지들이 적절하게 표현되어 있습니다. 디지털 북은 이래야한다는 걸 아주 잘 보여주고 있습니다.

영어의 압박으로 자세한 내용을 보지 못했지만, 제작 과정, 삭제된 장면, 삭제된 컨셉, 삭제된 무기 등을 볼 수 있었는데 만드는데 분명 많은 수고가 들어간 부분들을 과감하게 삭제했고 결과적으로 명작이 되었다는데 놀랐습니다.

툼레이더에 관심이 있으시다면 스팀 할인 때 구매할 가치는 충분히 있습니다.

Really informative Digital Book, especially on how the creative team nearly hit the failure wall... then how the idea appeared and transformed into one of the very best games of the last decade. With videos presented by Chuck, and pieces Lara IRL (or the actress who gave her her shapes and voice).

This was a great read. The book contains extra info on how the game was built up, how the developers started with many ideas, a horroristic game with monsters, and how they ended up with a survival story. It was a long road and you can find many interesting concept arts about this in the book. If you're really into the game, you'll surely enjoy seeing all the awesome behind the scenes stuff.
