Classic Game Post Mortem: Prince of Persia, by Jordan Mechner at GDC 2011
It’s a good talk about the programming and design process of the original Prince Of Persia game.
Even if you don’t have the original, you can play Prince Of Persia courtesy of the Internet Archive!!
(If you cannot go to the Internet Archive on 300 Funston Street, this is the original Apple II version, not the DOS version.)
