The creator of the game ‘Prince of Persia’, Jordan Mechner, had a call from his dad in New York finding the original code in a box 3 weeks ago, in no less than 20 floppy disks amounting to 2mb.

Luckily, the code has been able to be copied from an Apple II to a modern day laptop, and it was only finished today without fault, incredible.

EDIT: Jordan posted an update to this describing the journey from floppy disk to Macbook. Link.
