CODumentary to explore the success behind the franchise

Interested in learning more about the Call of Duty franchise? Well, you’ll soon be able to with the release of ‘CODumentary’.

Written, directed, and produced by Jonathan Beales, and published and distributed by Devolver Digital, CODumentary is a feature-length documentary that explores the success of the Call of Duty franchise. The documentary will detail how Call of Duty was originally created in 2003, when at the time it faced plenty of competition, and how it rose up into global popularity. CODumentary will explore the franchise from multiple angles, featuring input from developers, fans, professional players, and a number of game experts.

“One of the biggest challenges making the film was encapsulating a 15 year timeline into 93 minutes,” said Jonathan Beales. “I was very fortunate to work with a lot of great people whose input and contribution really helped make this happen. It’s a rich story of evolution told through the eyes of games developers, fans, industry experts and professional players. It’s a big documentary and we wanted to put the fans first so took the opportunity to host two full screenings at DreamHack Atlanta that were a big success.”

CODumentary releases on September 19 at 10 AM PST, and will be available for purchase via Steam and on VOD via Amazon. CODumentary will also be available on iTunes, Google Play, MGo, PlayStation, Xbox, TubiTV, Indie Reign, the Indie Rights Vimeo Channel, and DVD/Blue-ray during a later point, however no release date has been revealed.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
