Pratchett has worked as a videogame writer since the development of Beyond Divinity in the early 2000’s. A few notable videogames she has worked on is the Overlord series, the original Mirror’s edge, Bioshock: Infinite, and Heavenly Sword. As of now it is unclear where Pratchett will put her talents, but she had this to say about her work on Tomb Raider.
But, I like to think we did some good things. Maybe shifted the gaming landscape a wee bit. And that feels damn good.
