Tomb Raider, Thomas Was Alone and Lego City Undercover nominated for 2013 Writers' Guild Award

Tomb Raider, Thomas Was Alone and Lego City Undercover have been shortlisted for the 2013 Writers' Guild Awards video game category, according to the Writers' Guild of Great Britian website.

Writers Rhianna Pratchett for Tomb Raider and Graham Goring for Lego City Undercover are in the running to win the video game writing award from the Guild, along with Mike Bithell for Thomas Was Alone. The Thomas Was Alone writer is currently working on his second game, a modder-friendly crime-simulator called Volume.

We previously spoke to Pratchett about her work on the Tomb Raider reboot, where she discusses how Lara Croft's backstory "finds a middle ground between strict adherence to canon and poetic liberty."

The video game award is one of 13 categories for writing across various mediums, such as theatre, radio, books, film and several for television. The 2013 Writers' Guild Awards is scheduled to be held in London on Nov. 13.
