Original Prince of Persia Code in the Wild
If you don't remember when we ran a story about legendary developer Jordan Mechner's dad finding the original code for the original Prince of Persia... originally, then read it here, and then smile at the idea that you can now have the code too!

According to Slashdot:

"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."

The Github link is here. Cheers to Slashdot and our good pal and reader Chris who alerted us to it.

Looked at it. Saw it was ASM. Immediately stopped looking at it.

When someone ports it to C, I'll be interested.
