More On: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Stadia

Oh Stadia, you so random. One day after this week's Stadia Connect, the platform stealth dropped Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris into the Stadia store. There was no mention of this game during the Connect presentation, and only a brief mention of the release in a Stadia Community Blog post (with the game's name incorrectly represented) revealed the news to the community:

"Confront ancient magics and dark passages in Lara Croft: Temple of Osiris. As Lara, Isis, Horus, or Carter, unearth sprawling tombs, outwit enemies, and escape cunning traps in search of treasure! Up to four players can cooperate on Stadia to solve puzzles and bring the buried secrets of the past to light. Lara Croft: Temple of Osiris is ready to buy on Stadia for $19.99 USD, and for a limited time it’s $10 for Stadia Pro members."

Originally released in December, 2014, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a 1 - 4 player adventure title that has Lara and a group of friends raiding tombs in Egypt. Players work together to solve puzzle and overcome obsticles, thought the game can be played solo. People seemed to like it well enough - Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris carries a "74" on Metacritic. Most critics considered it a worthy addition to the Tomb Raider cannon, though a bit brief. 

Either way, you can now play on Stadia, if you have enough controllers. I just ordered a second controller, so I can at least take a run at this game with one of my kids.
