Tomb Raider is a video game developed by Core Design and published by Eidos Interactive. It was originally released in 1996 for MS-DOS, PlayStation and Sega Saturn. Tomb Raider follows the exploits of Lara Croft, a British female archaeologist in search of ancient treasures à la Indiana Jones. The game was critically acclaimed and widely influential. It spawned a number of sequels and a franchise of related media.

In 1996 India, Calcutta, Lara Croft has returned from an expedition to capture Bigfoot and is relaxing in the Imperial Hotel when she is approached by a Texan man named Larson. Larson introduces her via video screen to his employer, Jacqueline Natla, the owner of Natla Technologies. After failing to sway her with money (Lara only plays for sport), Natla asks for her assistance in acquiring a piece of a talisman known as the Scion, an ancient artifact located in the lost tomb of Qualopec, located in the mountains of Peru. Intrigued, Lara agrees to make the journey.

The object of Tomb Raider is to guide Lara through a series of tombs and other locations in search of treasures and artifacts. On the way, she must kill dangerous animals and other creatures, while collecting objects and solving puzzles to gain access to an ultimate prize, usually a powerful artifact. Gunplay is restricted to the killing of various animals that appear throughout each stage, although occasionally Lara may be faced with a human opponent. Instead the emphasis lies on solving of puzzles and performing trick jumps to complete each level. As such, Tomb Raider in essence hearkens back to the classical form of platform style gameplay.

In 1998, Tomb Raider was re-released as Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business in North American and Tomb Raider Gold in the rest of the world as an exclusive for PC and Macintosh (being the game's first release on Macintosh). The expansion featured the regular game as well as four new bonus levels in two extra scenarios called Shadow of the Cat and Unfinished Business. These bonus scenarios are made free to download for owners of the original.

The game begins with the Shadow of the Cat episode. Lara returns to the City of Khamoon in search of an undiscovered tomb dedicated to the Egyptian cat-goddess Bastet. The tombs she once explored in the original game have been flooded, allowing access to previously unreachable areas and opening a whole new world of possibilities.

Preliminary work on Tomb Raider commenced in 1993, but it was not until November 1996 that the game actually saw the light of day as a retail product. The title was crafted by Core Design of Europe, which took 18 months to develop it. The team consisted of six people, among them Toby Gard, who is credited with the invention of Lara Croft. The character went through several changes before Core settled on the version she became famous for. In its earliest conception, Lara Croft was a male placeholder for an as yet undefined character, but as Core decided that puzzles and stealth should be more important to the game than action, they found that these requirements better suited a female character than a classic male action hero.

A development in Lara's history is the so-called Nude Raider patch. A patch was created externally from Core and Eidos and was never housed on the Eidos or Core websites. This patch, when added to an existing Tomb Raider game, caused Lara to appear naked. Contrary to rumor, there is no method of creating a nude Lara in any console version of the game. In April 2004, it is falsely alleged that an insider from Eidos reported to a Tomb Raider electronic mailing list that Eidos had begun suing gamers using the Nude Raider
