Additionally, the studio announced a Lara Croft GO-inspired art contest that will benefit Child’s Play Charity.
Square Enix Montréal and Crystal Dynamics® are calling all artists (in the United States and Canada) to submit their own original Lara Croft GO-inspired artwork of their favorite Lara Croft® and Tomb Raider® scenes. The top 10 entries, selected by a panel of Lara Croft experts, will be showcased during the Lara Croft GO party at PAX Prime in Seattle on Aug. 28 and artists will be awarded exclusive prizes. Out of the ten semi-finalists, judges will choose three entries to be auctioned off with the proceeds going to Child’s Play. Square Enix encourages all artists to explore Lara Croft’s best escapes in the GO series art style.
Submissions are open now until Aug. 21. Those wishing to submit artwork can do so by emailing email@example.com with the subject line Lara Croft GO Art Contest Submission,” along with their name (to be used publicly), city and a link to their online art portfolio, if applicable.

About Child’s Play
Since 2003, we’ve set up and organized Child’s Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 220 facilities worldwide, including hospitals and domestic abuse shelters. Over the years, you as a community have answered the call and come together to raise millions of dollars. Child’s Play works in two ways. With the help of hospital staff, we set up gift wish lists full of video games, toys, books, and other fun stuff for kids. By clicking on a hospital location on our map, you can view that hospital’s wish list and send a gift.
Child’s Play also receives cash donations throughout the year. With those cash donations, we purchase new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities. These donations allow for children to enjoy age-appropriate entertainment, interact with their peers, friends, and family, and can provide vital distraction from an otherwise generally unpleasant experience.
