Prince of Persia Source Code Liberated from Apple II, Released Into Wild

The source code for the original Prince of Persia has been successfully located, copied and released as open source into the universe, freeing it from its Apple II prison in the home of programmer Jordan Mechner, the game‘s creator.

Mechner ended up having a “megacopy” party in order to transfer the game code from its Apple II floppies to something a little more serviceable in the modern era. Mechner was helped out by digital archivist Jason Scott and some modified computer hardware.

If you want to check out the code yourself, you can do so over at GetHub.
