Toby Gard, original creator of Lara Croft back in the ’90s, is now Lead Designer at Crystal Dynamics for an “unnanounced project”, his LinkedIn profile details. Let’s do a quick recap, shall we?

Tomb Raider Fanboy’s May sleuthing pointed us to Underworld senior environmental artist Caleb Strauss also listing an unannounced project he’s working on at Crystal D. And just yesterday, Team Lara posted a job opening for the next Senior Art Director for their next triple A outing. Need we scratch our heads?

Thanks to amiro1989 for the heads up over at Tomb Raider Forums.

Variety is reporting that Tomb Raider Underworld is among the five nominees for best video-game writing of 2008 for the Writers Guild Awards. Original Lara Croft creator Toby Gard and Underworld creative director Eric Lindstrom (the latter unfortunately among the 30 laid off CD employees) are credited for the story of Lara’s latest adventure, one that involves literally going literally in search of the hammer of Thor, the Norse god of thunder.

The announcement of winners for the WGA Awards will be on 7th February. Until then, keep your fingers crossed for Lindstrom and Gard.
