Prince Prince of Persia returns for an outing on the Atari 8-bit.

Jordan Mechner’s phenomenal ground-breaking Prince of Persia needs no introduction. Even if you weren’t around for the original, there’s a good chance you’ve heard about it or played one of the many more-modern remakes and sequels.

Rensoup has been porting Prince of Persia to the humble Atari 8-bit using the BBC Master port as the basis, and it’s looking quite incredible, and he reached out to me about a custom font for a little more polish.

The font takes some ideas from Polaris but embellishes them with typographical elements from the typography that adorn the original box.

Hopefully, the game adopts this font, but as-yet, there are no public builds with it, so we shall see.
