Story of gathering-courage

Demetrious Johnson wouldn’t take no for an answer.

Surviving an abusive childhood, Demetrious faced innumerable challenges growing up. He channeled his anger and frustrations into a seemingly unlikely UFC career. Significantly smaller than his competition, he suffered a string of injuries as a result of his size. With consistent training and the determination to be the best, he proved himself a serious force to be reckoned with. He is currently the #1 ranked UFC Flyweight Champion.

When developing the new Lara Croft for Tomb Raider, Crystal Dynamics was most inspired by the courage of everyday people thrust into extraordinary circumstances... and living to tell about it.

“We constantly found ourselves seeking out stories of these real survivors, then going back to Lara and saying okay, now this is what real courage looks like.”

Lara’s instincts, emotions and brave spirit in the game are a direct reflection of survivors like you. And now, in exchange for the inspiration, we are giving back, one survivor at a time.
