The story of how a group of ambitious young British programmers gave Nintendo the courage to enter the 3D arena is hardly new; we've covered it on this very site, for example.

It does an excellent job of charting the history of this legendary game, from how the likes of Dylan Cuthbert and Giles Goddard ended up in NCL's HQ in Japan to how Argonaut Software built one of the most groundbreaking pieces of '90s gaming tech in the form of the powerful Super FX chip, which allowed the SNES to perform all kinds of polygon-pushing trickery.
