It is a truth universally recognised that video games based on film licenses are invariably terrible, so when GoldenEye was released in 1997, two years after the movie had come out and to little fanfare, expectations were not high. It went on to sell 8 million copies and still features in the upper end of those ‘Best Ever Video Games’ lists to this day.
The game was made by a small team at Rare Ltd compromising just nine core members and to mark the 20th Anniversary of GoldenEye, we are delighted to welcome five of that original group to talk about the creation of this seminal shooter.
The Q&A, hosted by Paul Drury and Martyn Carroll of Retro Gamer (Official) magazine, will end with an opportunity for audience members to take on the makers of the game in a multiplayer deathmatch, with prizes.
Please note: anyone who chooses to play as Oddjob will be asked to leave immediately!
