Publisher Codemasters has officially started up the publicity machine for Dance Factory - its do-it-yourself answer to the classic stomping-on-arrows-in-time-to-music game Dance Dance Revolution. The first output is a new website and trailer, the latter of which you can watch by clicking the Movies tab above.
Dance Factory is unique in that it's built around a long-overdue feature: by reading the beats in music CDs, it enables players to create custom levels using their own music collection. Additionally, players can use their favorite songs to create vaguely muppet-looking monsters that will wobble around in the background while they dance. For our full hands-on (or is that feet-on?) preview of the game, click here.
