Remember the days of the Nintendo 64? Playing to your heart’s content and collecting as many cartridges as possible? Well…we only really cared about one game – GoldenEye 007. This game (obviously) focused on James Bond. In fact, the player was Bond, James Bond. And I mean, if that’s not enough to sell the game to you, I don’t know what will. The game became incredibly popular during the late ‘90s and early ‘00s and is said to have had a huge impact on the N64 console.
Now, an Australian company has confirmed that they will be making a documentary exploring the history of the game, and the impact it had on the Nintendo corporation. The company, GoldenEra will be documenting how the inexperienced team of the GoldenEye 007 game defied boundaries and expectations to create one of the best first-person shooter games ever invented.
The company have released a teaser for the documentary (see above), but are asking for support from members of the public and fans of the game to help make their dream a reality using an IndieGoGo campaign. It’s said that the finished product will include interviews of those in the gaming industry and those who worked on the game. The director, Drew Roller, has said,
Thankfully we’ve been able to film many interviews for the documentary already. And after speaking to several of GoldenEra’s developers, as well as many industry experts from IGN, Kotaku, GameSpot and Good Game, we’ve found a story that’s even more fascinating than we hoped.
The team is still quite far off of their $85,000 USD goal (don’t forget they only launched the campaign on April 18th), but they are looking to expand their filming across the pond to the UK, to ‘capture many more stories and create the documentary the game deserves.’
Well, we can’t wait to see what they pull out the bag, and we’ll definitely be watching when it’s released in late 2017.
