Today we’ve preserved a prototype of Prince of Persia by Virgin Games! It appears to be from towards the end of development, with a few differences here and there.


  • The game’s title within the copyright screen is trademarked.
  • Slight graphical differences.
  • Text changes (notably right after the titlescreen).
