Creator: Core Design

Core Design, Ltd. was a British video game company founded in 1988 and based in Derby. Originally a developer of Amiga games (though many of its early titles were actually Multi-Platform), it started releasing games for the Sega Genesis, Sega CD and other consoles in 1992.

Core Design was acquired in 1994 by publisher US Gold, which over the next several years became part of Eidos Interactive. Under Eidos, Core Design developed all games in the Tomb Raider series until 2003, when Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness failed abysmally.

By 2006, Core Design was essentially defunct. The Core Design name and properties remained with Eidos, but the development team was acquired by Rebellion, and was re-branded as Rebellion Derby. They were ultimately taken down in 2010 after the critically savaged flop Rogue Warrior, so it's pretty safe to say the Core Design is completely and officially no more.
