'The Golden Games of Bond': New Book on 'GoldenEye' Games Out This December

Updated: Sep 26, 2022


Twenty-five years after the launch of Nintendo 64's revolutionary video game GOLDENEYE 007, based on the blockbuster James Bond film GOLDENEYE, it is announced that a new book covering the different video games using the title will be released by the end of 2022. THE GOLDEN GAMES OF BOND: A TOTAL SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS OF THE GOLDENEYE LEGACY is written by Nicolás Suszczyk (author of THE WORLD OF GOLDENEYE and FOR ENGLAND, JAMES) and counts with the collaboration of different people involved in the video game industry, like video game historian Steven L. Kent and ZOOM Platform CEO Jordan Freeman, along with GOLDENEYE: ROGUE AGENT screenwriter Danny Bilson. Beyond all the facts and figures, the author overviews the success and impact of each title and finds out that every company in possession of the James Bond license wanted to have their own "GoldenEye", generally failing to achieve the same impact as the original game did.


Read the official blurb below:


Video games based on blockbuster movies were just another piece of merchandising before GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo 64 hit the stores in August 1997, some two years after the release of the film that inspired it. Ian Fleming's secret agent was now popular in other media besides movies, books and comic strips. One particularly targeted to young generations. With eight million copies sold all over the world, Nintendo 64's golden cartridge took everyone by surprise. The years went on and the James Bond licence was passed from one developer to the other, with each new game done under the producers' watchful supervision. But the legend of GoldenEye 007 left such a timeless impact that everyone wanted to have their own "GoldenEye".​​​​​​​


​The Golden Games of Bond sheds the light on not only the most popular interactive adventure starring agent 007, but the many attempts to replicate the success of the original through spin-offs and remakes, including attempts by freelance developers and programmers to adapt the experience in modern-day technologies. For some, it was an opportunity to make more money, to others the mere chance to bring back a happy childhood for themselves and others, but there is one undeniable truth: in the past 25 years, nobody felt indifference whenever the word "GoldenEye" was uttered.


THE GOLDEN GAMES OF BOND will be released on Kindle eBook on December 12, after a prior release on paperback format through the Amazon store. Stay tuned for future announcements regarding this material or visit the book's official site: bit.do/goldengamesofbond .
