Retro game lovers, get ready for a documentary made just for you! A documentary drama called The Button Bashers is currently in production with the hopes of being released in late 2021.
The film is created by Elerby Studios and explores computer gaming dating all the way back to the 80s. The Button Bashers was written, directed and funded by Elerby Studios owner, Lee Bolton, who explains his reasoning for creating the movie saying "This film has been my passionate project at the studio. I grew up with the 80s computer games." He goes on to say, "It's a documentary drama, so we've got interviews with the people who were involved in making games in their back bedrooms, speaking about how they made a lot of money in a short space of time, and then we have actors too. Now, it's a multi-billion dollar industry. It's really interesting, it's like a piece of history."
For our part, we're excited to see some of the creators who were included in the documentary, some of the people interviewed in the movie are huge in the industry to this day and are still making games for the Xbox and PS5.
Elerby Studios is in talks with a production company in the US, but no details have been revealed that unfortunately means we don't yet know how or when it will be released however we're keeping an eye out for when we might get to watch the upcoming documentary drama.
