Prince of Kombat you all must know...

Postby goldeng2015 » June 28th, 2015, 2:07 am

Hi everyone,


I couldn't find a better subject line to make you all pop-in to read what it's all about. So first thanks for clicking on my introduction thread. :D


Before I begin I would like to thank to these talented developers that made my life much easier:
To Brendon James for his RoomShaker I & II
And to David - For his Princed Resources (PR) - Does David has a last name to mention in my credits? :|


Now to my introduction:
My name is Gal Shemesh, 30 years old from Israel.
I'm an experienced amateur (or should I say a Pro by now) of video & sound editing for 13 years, recording voices for 9 years, and also pixel-art animation for about 20 years so far. I've built an editing and recording studio in my home and upgraded it here and there over the years to meet my needs.

One of my best project that enjoyed this years of talent, experience and equipment was my 'Prince Of Persia - The Dubbed & Photographed Version' which I created back in September, 2006. I also created some other fun-dubbed videos based on known motion graphic films, but they mostly were for the Hebrew audience as they included local jokes that don't make sense when translated to other languages. So as I wanted people from overseas to know me and my talent, I created my POP dubbed series, which are mainly in Hebrew, but I included English subtitles as well. Yet some local jokes could not be exactly translated, but according to the comments I received it worked quite well after all. :)

It all began with a promo video of the idea (before I even created any level) in order to see if there are audience for this kind of project. You may find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lEYeql ... 91&index=1
To my surprise the audience were so excited with this kind of thing, as no one ever dubbed a video game like this before. The idea was to take the POP game and to dub it as if as the Prince actually has a personality, feelings, etc. At first I also meant to include some real video footage of myself acting as the Prince. But I left that part behind as I wanted to stick with the good old 2D pixel art rather than working with actual video clips. Yet the 'Photographed' word was forgotten in the title. So I thought oh well, I'll leave it there in case I'll want to include some real video footage in the project further on...

But the magic of this project doesn't end here. It actually begins in Chapter 3, where I made for the Prince some new moves that doesn't exist in the original game whatsoever. And that was what made (and still make) the audience asking for more. What I did what drawing new animation sprites for the Prince, performing Mortal Kombat moves on the guards - And that was the hilarious idea of all times. People just keep asking me whether these moves are actually exist in the original game or not. And that's because they're made so good to be true. ;)

So I've been pushed by the fans to complete all POP1 levels - That was a big success and a lot of fun to create. But the fans wanted more. The fans kept asking me to create POP2. And guess what, that exactly what I did. This move has made the first POP series to be Season 1, and POP2 to be Season 2 - which I'm currently working on its final episode...

So if you haven't watched my POP dubbed series already, don't miss it! Start with Season 1 and don't skip any episode. It's getting better and better as you go forward to Season 2 if you would watch it in the chronological order. And you won't spoil the plot - Yes, there is a unique plot which I've written all from scratch, based on the original levels and my modified parts.


Well, that was my introduction guys and gals. Long, I know. But as a Prince Of Persia fan as myself, I think that this is exactly the place to share this with you all.

Hey Gal, some of the Prince of Persia videos are funny and interesting; clearly the later ones - the later Prince of Persia 2 videos - are better than the first ones, so your skills have clearly improved over time. It's too bad there's so much cursing in all those videos. I'm personally not a fan of the cursing, but maybe other people like it. Anyway, welcome to the forum and thanks for letting us know about your work.

Yep, I hate the swearing. Please, make the final video of POP2 swear-free.

Hi Norbert & doppelganger, and thanks so much for your input!

You both see it exactly as I do. My Prince of Persia episodes really got better and better from one episode to another. The style of cursing in Hebrew has its funny sides and most Hebrew viewers like it, as the funny part is that many 'curses' don't even make sense. :lol: However when translating those 'curses' to other languages they lose their 'color' and may sound not funny at all, so I know what you mean.

Anyway the style of cursing and cursing all together made their point in my opinion too - Some curses expressions are funny when used with reason and at proper points, while some are less. That's why in the recent episodes I paid more attention on the plot and less on cursing - In compare to previous episodes. However the Prince I created is a character with a style and behavior of a 'guy from the streets'. So there might be some 'curses' and bad expressions, but I'll do my best to do it with reason.

Thanks again and enjoy my videos! While working on the final episode I can assure you that it's going to blow every Prince of Persia fan's mind... :D

I don't mind asterisks as much as curses.
Or replace them with non-swearing words.

Oops.. I'm forgetting my manners.
