The film will tell the story of the UK video gaming industry from 1979 to 1996, a period in gaming which was very different from the rest of the world. They plan to interview several key figures in the UK gaming industry including Elite creator David Braben, Eidos's Ian Livingstone and the venerable Jeff Minter.
