31823841 story Prince of Persia Source Code Released On Github 101 Posted by Soulskill on Tuesday April 17, 2012 @04:19PM from the going-back-in-time dept. rbarreira writes "The source code for the original Prince of Persia game has been released on github by its author, Jordan Mechner. This release comes three weeks after Jordan announced the find of a box containing old floppy disks that had been forgotten in the back of a closet for 20+ years. A 'digital archeology' effort was launched to recover the contents of the floppy disks, with the help of Jason Scott from textfiles.com. Some photos from the 'copy party' have also been posted."
