Super Joystiq Podcast Special: A chat with Jordan Mechner on Karateka

Most people know Jordan Mechner as the creator of Prince of Persia, which has gone on to spawn a huge franchise spanning multiple sequels, reboots and even a major motion picture. Mechner got his start, however, with Karateka, a game he designed for the Apple II way back in 1984.

This week marks the release of a brand new Karateka, and we took the opportunity to speak with Mechner about it and learn why he decided to return to his first game after all these years.
