Description official description

Prince became a major international music star in 1982 with the release of "1999" and his fusion of rock, funk, soul and R&B dance music has kept him popular ever since. He was an early proponent of computer technology to deliver music whether it be through the internet or in a 3D multimedia experience such as this CD-ROM. At the time, Prince was in a battle with Warner Brothers Records over control of his music and was not using his name but instead used a symbol or glyph which looked like this stood on end... o(+>

The adventure game type of experience is a quest to collect the five pieces of Prince’s symbol, as you go through each beautifully rendered "virtual reality" world of his Foyer, Studio, Library, Grand Hallway, Dance Club, Boudoir, Virtual Video Room and Candle Room.

The structure you journey through is also in the shape of the artist's symbol. There are 11 simple puzzles to solve in order to get clues to play videos and collect the pieces that when all gathered you will see a special final exclusive video.

There are hundreds of music samples, concert video clips, and interactive objects many of which provide a history of Prince's career, music, albums, posters and friends. There are several mini games such as a working mixing console and DJ deck.

There are four full-length music videos, including two new songs: 'Interactive' and 'Endorphinemachine.' The music studio has a karaoke version of 'Kiss,' and in the private club music legends Eric Clapton, Little Richard, George Clinton, and Miles Davis share their views about him. You can also edit a version of the song "Race" Putting the CD-Rom in a stereo player will play the song "Interactive"

Prince (when he was alive) admitted that he nothing to do with the production of the game.

The Good
Live Concert clips and good sound quality on clips Dancing girls groove to his music Samples of songs Prince wrote for other artists. Interview Clips with Music Legends Sound board editing of "Race" Turntable sample booth of many songs. Karaoke version of "Kiss"



The Bad
Lack of credit to band members Levi Seacer Jr, Matt Fink, Andre Cymone, Wendy & Lisa, Sheila Escovando, Michael Bland, Sonny Thompson, Mark Brown and all the others who helped him create the music,

The Bottom Line
The 1995 era quest to explore and enjoy all segments of Prince's fantasy O(+> symbol castle is an easy one with light puzzles and point and click motion from room to room. Technology was entering a new age at the time and this CD-Rom which is easy to install captures the spirit of Prince's music. The game starts or launches with a video of the song "Interactive" As you complete the exploration of each area the symbol castle "space ship" takes off and you are rewarded with a video of the Gold Experience song "Endorphinemachine" Fans of Prince's music will enjoy an exploration into the world of his music which was often hidden from view. He recorded over 1000 original songs in his vault and Prince Interactive serves as a small time capsule to look back on a sample of his work.
