OpenLara: Play the First Tomb Raider Game in Your Web Browser

For sh*ts and giggles, you can now play Lara’s original outing right in your browser. The first thing you’ll probably notice is the higher framerate, but if you look at the controls blurb, you’ll find that the author graced the game with new features such as a first-person view and time control. Her boobs still look like triangles, though.

What’s also cool is that OpenLara offers both third-person and first-person modes. Players can switch at will between these two modes. Furthermore, the framerate has been unlocked and the game can be enjoyed at higher framerates (the original Tomb Raider was locked at 30fps, even on the PC). Thanks to its new game engine, the game also sports better visuals (though do not expect anything ground-breaking. Just some small tweaks thanks to hardware acceleration).
