The Making of Prince of Persia

The Making of Karateka

Before Prince of Persia, there was Karateka. Released in 1984, Jordan Mechner's debut game brought groundbreaking advances in cinematic storytelling, music, and animation to the Apple II. His three-year journey from unknown 17-year-old college freshman to bestselling game author is documented in his personal journal, a 1980s time capsule that Gamedeveloper.com recommends as "An essential narrative for indie game developers... Inspirational and cathartic."

Monte Cristo

Experience Alexandre Dumas' timeless epic of love, revenge, and redemption in a modern graphic-novel update by Jordan Mechner and Mario Alberti. Sam Castillo, an innocent American contractor framed for terrorism in the post-9/11 war on Iraq, endures 15 years in a secret offshore prison. He returns with a new identity as enigmatic billionaire Victor Sirin, determined to wreak vengeance on the three powerful men who destroyed his life — only to face an unexpected new opponent who threatens to awaken his frozen heart.

Templar

Liberty

Jordan Mechner's talent for interweaving vivid human characters with true historical events, as in his game The Last Express, brings a little-known "black ops" chapter of the American Revolution to life in a gripping new graphic novel. In 1776, while an outnumbered rebel army defends New York against an overwhelming British naval force, the brilliant French playwright Beaumarchais (author of The Marriage of Figaro) mounts an incredible secret operation to get desperately-needed weapons to the American colonists. With spectacular artwork by Etienne Le Roux and Loic Chevallier.

Samak the Ayyar
