The Game

Transported to a land of myth and legend, the Prince of Persia finds himself caught up in an epic battle between the primal forces of good and evil: the God of Light, Ormazd, versus his brother, Ahriman, the God of Darkness.

The Prince of Persia witnesses the destruction of the legendary Tree of Life, an act which threatens to plunge the entire world into eternal darkness by releasing a deadly dark matter, known as The Corruption, across the land.

Compelled to thwart the God of Darkness and his evil minions, the Prince joins forces with a mysterious protagonist gifted with magical powers, named Elika. Together they embark on a heroic quest to heal the ravaged landscape of the corruption that has plagued it, and ultimately restore peace.

Prince of Persia will deliver masterful storytelling, sprawling environments, and incredible set-piece moments in an experience rivaling the best blockbuster Hollywood movies.

A New Hero Emerges
Master the acrobatics, strategy, and fighting tactics of the most agile warrior of all time. Perform perfectly timed acrobatic combinations to traverse canyons and buildings and avoid the evil tremors borne out of the corruption. Armed with a gauntlet acquired from previous adventures, the Prince scales sheer cliff faces and tackle Ahriman's minions in combat!

A Unique Visual Style
Experience an ancient mythological world brought to life with an all-new art style labeled "Illustrative", inspired by the highly detailed hand painted illustrations it takes its source from. Prince of Persia's unique graphic style is a perfect balance between classic drawings and modern modeling, offering the look and feel of a watercolor painting in motion.

A Deadly New Ally
Combine the Prince's abilities and Elika's power to deadly effect. Her abilities will help in combat, acrobatics, and puzzle-solving. She will enable the Prince to reach new heights of deadly high-flying artistry through special duo acrobatic moves or devastating fighting combo attacks.

An Ancient Mythological World
Journey through sprawling Persian citadels, deserted kingdoms and perilous lava rifts, discover a vivid and mythological world of unprecedented scale, with an evolving non-linear structure. With multiple paths to choose from, players will influence the game's final outcome.

Prince of Persia is out December 5th in the UK (December 2nd in the U.S.) on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DS.

Well, It's been 2 months now since I submitted my entry. I think like most people on the forum I'm eager to see at least who actually won. I never expected the judging to take so long.

But it looks like this forum post has almost died on itself.

Lets see if we ever find out what happened. Does DA have a moderator email?

theres probably only one da staff picking the 50finalists and he only works for 1hour a week, cos theres no way this should take this long. By the time the winners are pronounced the game will be out of date and there will probably be a new prince of persia

I think they are probably choosing top 50 semi-finalist or something because it took long time (about 54 days which is 1 month and 24 days) to choose top 50 semi-finalist for the ';Pinkitude' competition and still no 'winner' at present. It might take more that to choose 50 semi-finalist and choose the top three winners. So, we all have to sit and wait for the result.
