You Can Now Play The Original Tomb Raider In Your Browser

Are you feeling bored? Wishing you could travel back to your carefree childhood and just play your beloved video games all day? We can't help you with the carefree thing, but you can get a simple taste of 1996, and all you need is an open browser.

Us right now.Giphy

Thanks to Timur Gagiev's OpenLara project, a demo level of the original 1996 Tomb Raider is available to play online, pointy boobs and all. OpenLara was inspired by the OpenTomb project, which is a crowd-sourced attempt at a cross-platform reimplentation of the now-defunct Core Design's engines which powered the first five Tomb Raider games. No word on whether OpenLara will expand to other levels of the game, but in the meantime it's a fun way to kill some time and flashback to a time when the graphics of our games were a lot less realistic. Click here to travel back to 1996.

It works!OpenLara
