Girlz 'N' Games webcomic #68: Don't try this at home!
Well, depending on your favourite category of pop culture geekery, you can choose to view this new Girlz 'N' Games comic as referring to the new movie, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (based, of course on the 2003 video game), or, alternatively, the new non movie tie-in game Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.
It was kind of inevitable that a Prince of Persia-themed GNG comic was on the way. If you've been reading this strip for a while now, you'll know that over the past *gulp* 6 years I've drawn more POP comics than even World of WarCraft ones. The "reimagined" Prince of Persia games released from 2003 - 2005, with their heavy emphasis on acrobatics to survive combats, avoid booby-traps and solve puzzles, are amongst my favourite game titles of all time.
In Girlz 'N' Games #68, I simply took POP's trademark wall running and back flips - as well as a line or so from the new fantasy-adventure film - and merged them with geeky bedroom shenanigans that go horribly, horribly wrong as a result. It's amazing the damage a lot of wine and little overconfidence can do...
And it's not every day you get to Google image search "Jake Gyllenhaal" and "broken nose" at the same time.
As a side note, when it comes to geeky bedroom role-playing, I don't think anything has ever topped this highly amusing 25 second clip from Family Guy. Enjoy the SFW goodness!
