Is it a game? Is it an aural puzzle? Or is it a musical experience?

Interactive is a CD-ROM video game which contained six songs as well as four music videos of which Prince recorded in June 1993 at Paisley Park Studios. Interactive is essentially a computer game that requires the player to navigate through a virtual 3D tour of several rooms within a make-believe villa (the Foyer, Studio, Library, Grand Hallway, Dance Club, Boudoir, Virtual Video Room and the Candle Room) to solve eleven puzzles to locate five pieces of the Prince love symbol. The real aim was to unlock the previously unreleased material.

The concept came about when Prince (then under the name of Prince love symbol) was exploring alternative avenues to distribute his music, since he was locked into a dispute with his record label Warner Bros. that led to the closure of his own label Paisley Park Records in 1993.

Interactive contains a total of 52 audio clips and 31 video clips and facts about Prince and his albums (1979-1993) as well as snippets of interviews with Eric Clapton, Little Richard, George Clinton and Miles Davis talking about him. The video game was released on Prince’s birthday and during the Interactive Tour. It’s title track, Interactive was later re-released on Crystal Ball in 1998.
