Atari 50 studio's The Making of Karateka interactive documentary out this month

The Making of Karateka, a new “interactive documentary” telling the story of Prince of Persia and The Last Express creator Jordan Mechner’s classic 1984 martial arts game, is launching for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation on 29th August, with a Switch version to follow in September.

It’s the work of Digital Eclipse, the studio behind last year’s acclaimed Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration, and promises a similarly styled delve into video gaming’s past, combining interviews, new video features, design documents, audio, and photos to create what the developer is calling the “deepest, most exhaustive exploration of the making of a single video game that’s ever been attempted in a video game itself.”

“Jordan Mechner,” the studio explains, “was an 18-year-old college student when he started making the martial arts adventure that would become one of the most influential games of the Apple II era. The Making of Karateka presents the story behind Mechner’s first published game through an exhaustive archive…that can be explored at your own pace.”
