Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary Edition by Core Design has been leaked online, which has long been sought after by Tomb Raider aficionados.
Originally canceled back in 2006, the remake would have been released for the PSP. Interestingly, when the game was canceled it was turned into an Indiana Jones game. which makes sense considering how similar the two properties are. Lara Croft has essentially always been a female Indiana Jones (not that there's anything wrong with that) so to find out that a Lara Croft game almost became an Indiana Jones title is like a "yeah, that makes sense" moment.
Use the archive from patch from Xproger/Gh0stblade _Xproger – Gh0stblade TRAE_Patch.zip) that make it playable:
1 download artbase and extract it to C: drive (it is important you have a folder structure like this C:\artbase\tombraider etc. the game won’t run if it’s not placed on C drive).
2. download Xproger/Gh0stblade patch.
3. use run.bat to launch the game!
There's also a patch.zip that is continually updated to help the game run better, so if you want the best experience be sure to keep that updated as well. There have already been three patches fixing crashes, textures, and adding sound, so be sure to check out the instructions page if you want all the details.

As someone who grew up playing PSP as my main portable console, I would have killed for this. Even though it's alpha gameplay and not close to a finished release, the game still looks and plays fantastically. From the art design to the modeling to the graphics themselves, the entire game oozes polish, and it's really a shame that it got canceled. At least we now finally have some gameplay footage so we can wonder what could have been.
