Early life and education
Prince is a lawyer who passed the bar in 1980.
Prince has created music and sound effects for Commander Keen 4–6, Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure, Pickle Wars, Catacomb 3D, Wolfenstein 3D, Spear of Destiny, Blake Stone, Rise of the Triad, Duke Nukem II, Duke Nukem 3D, Abuse, Demonstar, and many other games.
Among his most notable and most enduring works is the soundtrack to the video game Doom. The Doom soundtrack grew very popular among gamers, with fans doing various cover versions and remix projects more than 20 years after the game's release. According to John Romero, a co-developer of Doom, several tracks from the game are copies of songs from popular heavy metal bands, such as Pantera and Alice in Chains.
In 2006, he was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by his fellow game composers.
His latest works include sound and music for the game Wrack (formerly Last Bastion).
