This Lara, co-star of the original Memento Mori point and click adventure game from dtp, prefers solving crimes to raiding tombs.
Lara and Max – the dual protagonists from the first game – are on their honeymoon in South Africa when Lara receives a phone call from her boss at Interpol. He asks Lara for her assistance in the case of an art theft from a museum in Cape Town. While the police have already put the break-in on file, Lara and Max attempt to pick up the thief’s trail. In the course of a frantic chase, Max and the thief get caught up in a terrible car crash. The thief’s body is salvaged from the bottom of the steep coastal cliff and Max is declared missing, presumed dead.
Totally devastated, Lara returns to Interpol headquarters in Lyon. In her next case she then keeps finding clues that suggest to her that Max is still alive…
Memento Mori 2: Guardian of immortality is due to publish towards the end of the year.
