GoldenEye 007 is widely considered to be one of the most influential games of all time. When it released in 1997, it proved that first-person shooters were viable on console.

But how did GoldenEye 007 come to be?

There have been countless articles and interviews in years gone by. But GoldenEra, a new documentary film, aims to provide possibly the most comprehensive answer yet.

Directed by Drew Roller, GoldenEra will look at GoldenEye 007’s surprising and unusual development. Just how did a small team of mostly newcomers create one of the greatest games ever?

The film will also look at GoldenEye 007’s legacy, including how it shaped the games industry for years to come.

GoldenEra will feature loads of interviews from the development team, including Grant Kirkhope, Steve Ellis and the legendary Dr. David Doak, as well as industry insiders and game critics.

Yours truly may even make a brief appearance. (Provided I make the final cut!)
