PyDDR is a clone of a popular dance simulator called Dance Dance Revolution. 
The game logic is written completely in Python with Pygame\'s bindings to C/SDL 
for multimedia.

Dance Dance Revolution, or DDR for short, is a game where the player uses a 
dancing mat and dances on set patterns of arrows (\"dance steps\") in time to 
music that the game plays. Depending on how in-time the player is with the 
steps s/he\'s supposed to step on, a letter grade is given at the end of the 

PyDDR aims to do everything that DDR is capable of doing while adding new 
features, visual effects, and interface options. One of the pluses of using 
pyDDR over regular DDR is that one can create his/her own music and then write 
dance steps to the song, or synchronise steps to already-existing music.

Currently, some of these features are implemented, and the game is playable. 
However, in the future, pyDDR will be a full-featured dancing simulator, also 
supporting other dancing games such as ParaParaParadise, which allows you to 
wave your hands over sensors instead of stepping on floor panels. Two-or-more 
player play and netplay are planned, as well as a possible future release with 
steps timed to the author\'s own music.

The project is already in development and you can download the latest release 

Other Software Required:
Python, Pygame (which depends on Numeric, SDL, SMPEG, SDL_mixer, SDL_image, 
freetype, SDL_ttf)
