FIRST KEYNOTE ANNOUNCEMENT Hypertext 2001's featured keynote: noted interactive game creator, Jordan Mechner. Best known for his groundbreaking Prince of Persia (Brøderbund, 1989), which pioneered the use of realistic animation in an interactive action game, Mechner has produced many innovative and best-selling interactive games, including Karateka (Brøderbund, 1986), Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame (Brøderbund, 1993), The Last Express (1997) and Prince of Persia 3-D (Learning Company, 1999). Prince of Persia won numerous prestigious awards, including the Tilt d'Or and MacUser Eddy awards and has been translated into six languages. With The Last Express, Mechner further pioneered the use of multiple points-of-view in a cinematic adventure that takes place, uniquely, in real time. Lauded by critics, The Last Express featured more than twice the dialogue of feature films, thirty different characters, and multiple plot pathways and multiple conclusions that, as one critic noted, "create a sense of real-time suspense and unpredictability beyond that of a traditional adventure game." Mechner is also the director of the film documentary Waiting for Dark and has recently completed a screenplay for a feature film of The Last Express.
