release date: 5 March 2013

Tomb Raider (2013) is the first entry in a new Tomb Raider continuity. The game re-establishes the origins of Lara Croft. Tomb Raider was released on 5 March 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Windows. It has sold more than 4 million copies.

On Tomb Raider 2013 I did the real-time tessellation settings on all environments in the game. With tessellation an object can be subdivided to make it more smooth or to give it more detail. The extra detail is added with the help of a heightmap / displacement map.

The game contained over 40 different levels.

Conker: Live & Reloaded

platform: Xbox
released: 21 June 2005
genre: action, platforming, third-person shooter

Conker: Live & Reloaded is an action-platform video game developed by Rare and exclusively released for the Xbox in June 2005. The single player mode is a remake of the 2001 game Conker’s Bad Fur Day for the Nintendo 64. The multiplayer on the Xbox is completely different from the Nintendo 64 version and utilizes Xbox Live. Conker was praised by critics for its presentation and graphics. At the E3 in 2005 the game won IGN’s “Best Graphics” (I was there :-). The multiplayer remained in the top 10 most played titles on Xbox well into 2007.
