After a ten-year search, Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner has finally discovered the original Apple II Source code for Prince of Persia.

Mechner recently blogged about his discovery, explaining how he found the discs containing the code in an old box his father sent him after doing some spring cleaning. Side note: Mechner’s father, Francis Mechner, was the composer for both Karateka and the original Prince of Persia.

Mechner claims that he will soon begin working to transfer the 3.5″ Apple ProDOS disks onto a MacBook Air and adapt them to a modern format. You can follow his progress on Facebook and Twitter.
