THE MAKING OF PRINCE OF PERSIA: JOURNALS 1985-1993

Jordan Mechner



 

Released in 1989, the Prince of Persia video game is considered the pioneer of the action/platform genre. Thanks to its revolutionary mechanics and animations for the time, it has acquired great critical and commercial success over time. Entirely designed by one man, Jordan Mechner, Prince of Persia is a cult work of video games.


This book presents the diaries of Jordan Mechner, from 1985 to 1993. Rich in anecdotes of all kinds, it describes the creative process of the young director for Prince of Persia and its sequel. Through this story, Jordan Mechner not only reveals the technical secrets of his work, but also the feelings he went through during his creative journey: his joys of course, but also his doubts and frustrations. A human adventure that will fascinate anyone interested in artistic creation.


To accompany this fascinating story, expect a myriad of period documents as you read. Posters, press clippings, photographs, everything has been carefully preserved by Jordan for more than thirty years.
