The PAXEast 2012 keynote with gaming legend Jordan Mechner (Prince of Persia)

PAX East 2012 Liveblog: Jordan Mechner Keynote

Jordan Mechner began his game making career in a college dorm room building the seminal ’80s hits Prince of Persia and Karateka. He revisited Prince of Persia decades later as a AAA title and a blockbuster summer film, and this year will return to his indie roots with a remake of Karateka. In this session, Jordan will reflect on a lifetime of entertainment industry experiences, from having his dad score his first game to collaborating with Jerry Bruckheimer to the 20 years in between.

The liveblog will begin at 10:30AM EDT on Friday April 6th.
