If you’re big into behind-the-scenes video games creation stuff, you should consider checking out Geoff Keighley’s latest Final Hours app, The Final Hours of Tomb Raider ($0.99). As you can imagine, this one chronicles the creation of the new Tomb Raider, which is an interesting game because it’s both a re-imagining of Lara Croft and a complete re-boot of a long-standing franchise. It’s sort of a big deal, as far as video game follow-ups go.
