Lara Croft Featuring at Victoria and Albert Museum Exhibition

Posted by TurtleGirl On October - 10 - 2011

Lara Croft will be coming to the Victoria and Albert Museum for a special Exhibition featuring british design and is expected to open around the same time as the London Olympics. The exhibition, British Design 1948-2012: Innovation in the Modern Age, features 350 works which sum up British innovation from the time of the last London Olympic Games until now.

Video games and technology feature strongly in the exhibition and the top five games chosen to exemplify British gaming design are Tomb Raider, Elite, Lemmings, Grand Theft Auto and Little Big Planet.
 

Curator Ghislaine Wood said: “We consulted plenty of people in the gaming industry, and it was clear that Lara Croft had to be in there. She was the first female and the first action character. Lemmings was a simple game from DMA in Dundee. Grand Theft Auto, who we’re still in talks with, was the first environment you could drive through, and made DMA rock stars. While Little Big Planet brings new elements like social and photography into games.
