OpenLara: Open-Source Engine Remake For Tomb Raider, Including WebGL Version

Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Gaming on 24 April 2017 at 05:49 AM EDT. 28 Comments
OpenLara is an open-source effort to have a engine re-implementation of the classic Tomb Raider game.

Similar to OpenMW, Xoreos, and many other open-source projects seeking to re-implement proprietary classic game engines in modern, clean, open-source code, OpenLara is aiming for similar treatment to the classic Tomb Raider title.

OpenLara is inspired by OpenTomb, another open-source project aiming for a cross-platform re-implementation of Tomb Raider 1 - 5 engines.

With this modern effort, OpenLara even has a web-based version compiled via EmScripten and rendering to WebGL for those wanting to play Tomb Raider in their HTML5 web-browser. Check that out here.
