The Game That Almost Didn't Happen - Goldeneye 64

Goldeneye 64 was one of those games that I spent countless hours timing guards’ paths for flawless missions and rocket launcher only multiplayer matches.  When the team at Rare was first approached with the opportunity for they game they nearly turned it down, and faced challenges with a still in development platform.  Their startup success story is inspiring to say the least.

Despite everything, the game went on to become the third highest selling N64 game, inspire console shooting games, and win a crazy amount of awards. Next time you’re heading down the wrong way of the entrepreneurial rollercoaster, take a deep breath, make a cup of tea, and remember that you can make it happen. Persevere and dominate.
