There are good decompilers available. They do a decent job and with skilled programs they can be rebuilt.

@Trilarion After seeing how was handled the relocation of my small company I fear that the source code of a lot, a lot of old games and other software is really definitely lost.

The Source Code for Jazz Jackrabbit 2 might be lost, and the Source Code for Prince of Persia was nearly lost.

There is, it's horrible: <a href="http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/6271/where_games_go_to_sleep_the_game_.php" class="light_un" target="_blank">http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/6271/where_games_go_to_sleep_the_game_.php</a> E.g. Taito announced 1996 that they lost the Bubble Bobble Source code, Atari throw away the source code of Centipede to trash...etc :( <br /> <br /> Therefore should GOG try to obtain the source code where possible: <a href="http://www.gog.com/wishlist/site/obtain_source_code_for_games_where_possible" class="light_un" target="_blank"><br /> http://www.gog.com/wishlist/site/obtain_source_code_for_games_where_possible</a>

Is there really lost source code or is it just not public?
