Dance Factory in motion

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 isa newwebsiteand 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, clickhere.
