Jordan Mechner’s Biography

Mechner was born in New York and graduated in psychology from Yale University in 1985. His first video game was Karateka in 1984, written while he was in college. With the release of Prince of Persia in 1989, Mechner revolutionized the quality of the animation used in video games. Both titles were published by Brøderbund.

For the animations used in Prince of Persia, Mechner spent days studying videos and photographs of his brother David running and jumping to then meticulously replicate the actions in the game. The animations until then used in video games were not practically realistic.

In 1993, Jordan founded Smoking Car Productions (an entertainment software development company) in San Francisco, California, to create The Last Express. Although acclaimed by critics, the game turned out to be a commercial fiasco, and Smoking Car Productions was forced to close.

In 2003, Ubisoft released the fourth installment of the Prince of Persia saga: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, where Mechner collaborates as a programmer and designer. Was involved only in name in the fifth episode, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, which was the sequel to Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The third installment of the Sands of Time trilogy, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones, was published in December 2005.

On the occasion of Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, Mechner was quoted in the December 2005 issue of Wired magazine saying: “I am not a follower of artistic direction, or the violence with whichhave earned the M rating. The story, the character, the dialogues, the voices of the actors and the visual style were not to my taste. “

Today Mechner divides his time between writing scripts and designing games. He has written and directed award-winning documentaries, Waiting for Dark and Chavez Ravine: A Los Angeles Story.
