I just can’t get enough of classic Prince of Persia this month and now that I’ve completed the newly released C64 conversion (that last level was a tough cookie) I’m now revisiting the game once again on many other classics systems.
It’s such a fascinating game and therefore so it’s with great pleasure that I find that author Jordan Mechner has published his personal journal that was written during the years Prince of Persia was created.
It’s available as a digital download for either Amazon Kindle of in .pdf format for many other readers. It’s priced at $7.99 although the first 40 pages can be downloaded and previewed for free.
Some of Jordan’s original sketches and notes are included.
You can buy/trial from Jordan’s website here –
Be sure to check out the promotional video showing early video footage of family members providing Jordan with A basis for his rotoscope animation technique.
