Groove Motion DDR is an exercise program with a Dance Dance Revolution theme. Announced in 2008 by Konami[1], it has been in production since 2006 and is part of Konami's fitness series. It is not so much a game as it is video instruction for aerobic exercise and utilizes dance mats that are there for self-positioning and are not attached to the computer. Up to 24 people can participate at one time[2], requiring a large amount of space to accommodate everyone. A projector is used instead of a TV to allow everyone dancing to see the screen.[3] While dancing, waistband pedometers are worn to track individual workout stats.[4]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The gameplay of Groove Motion DDR is like most DDR games without actual interaction. Much like the Dance Dance Revolution DVD Game, the dance mats are not connected to the computer and are there to provide a place to step not to keep track of someone's score.

Interface & graphics[edit | edit source]

The game is modeled after the classic Dance Dance Revolution look, using graphics and visual elements from older DDR games such as Dance Dance Revolution Solo Bass Mix.[3] It also features mirrored life action dancers to assist participants much like ParaParaParadise, another music video game series by Konami.[1]

Music[edit | edit source]

The music of the game is unconfirmed however during a video presentation some claim to have heard songs such as "Dynamite Rave" and as seen in a visual demo "Baby Baby Gimme Your Love", both in-house tracks produced by Konami for the Dance Dance Revolution series.[1]
