Mini Prince by Anne Bras

Post by David »

Updates on the 24th:
https://popuw.com/ wrote: 2020-04-24 Check out Mini Prince - a new MS-DOS fan-made platformer by Anne Bras. A stripped down version of Prince of Persia 1 to its bare minimum featuring a one whole level, full ASCII action, a 104x80 resolution, sword fighting, and sound.
Official site: http://www.miniprince.nl/ -- No download yet, though the HTML source includes a commented-out link to nowhere.
I wonder where did Jalal get the cover from, since it's not on the official site.

It seems the world record doesn't include these: viewtopic.php?p=24415#p24415 -- Maybe because they are tool-assisted?

I recognize his name.
He's from the Netherlands (where I live) and he's known for his large collection of PC game big boxes.
In one of his talks, here, he's showing a photo slide with a PoP2 box.

You can find a big panorama picture of his collection on his site: http://www.annebras.nl/pcking/
In the picture, you can find PoP (1,2,3D) in the top row, on the 6th shelf from the left.

You can also find separate images of the PoP 1,2,3D boxes (and their contents) on the collection page, in the 4th row from the bottom.

PoP also appears in his top 10 list.

I've found more things about Mini Prince:

Trailer (April 27): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7QncFa6Atg -- I wonder why isn't it linked from the official site.
Announcement (May 1): https://twitter.com/hangman3d/status/12 ... 5878423552 -- I hope it's really soon now...
Announcement (April 21): https://twitter.com/hangman3d/status/12 ... 7526170624 -- I see it was retweeted by PoPModding.
Announcement (April 17): https://www.instagram.com/p/B_GPRgIHASa/ -- So the game is made with QBasic.
A short article in Portuguese (April 19): https://planetamsdos.blogspot.com/2020/ ... rince.html

EDIT: I moved all Mini Prince-related posts from POPUW Topic to this new thread.

Anne wrote a blog post about the game: https://pckingblog.wordpress.com/2020/0 ... e-out-now/

Since he is famous for collecting boxed games, he is selling boxes for this game. :)
The boxes are made by Gal Shemesh, whose name can be familiar from here: viewtopic.php?p=16673#p16673


He also mentions there are secrets in the game.

I already found one of them (before I found the blog post).
Hint:
Spoiler: show
You need to finish the game with a high enough score for one of them.
And another thing, although it's likelier to be a bug rather than a secret:
Spoiler: show
You can go through walls if you try hard enough. (Only in the DOS version.)
If you go further than the edge of the screen, the game will crash.

If you choose to "break" the right-side wall, the smiley-prince will even leave a trail:
you_can_go_into_the_wall.png
you_can_go_into_the_wall.png (2.12 KiB) Viewed 1199 times
According to the texts I found in the EXEs, there is at least one more hidden secret (or maybe two?).

I also found a slightly funny error message which that game hasn't used so far:
Spoiler: show
Tulips and cheese!!! The game broke! :(

I'm also wondering why are there multiple EXE files.
All of them will start the same game, even though the files are different.

Attached some related photos, I took from Anne's site.
An unboxing video here.
As unboxer Clint says, the rotoscoping sheet is meant as a joke, with all resulting frames being just the one smiley. :)
