It’s been a crazy few weeks here at Harmonix headquarters. We re-launched the podcast then launched a new website, a little game called Rock Band 3, and now, Dance Central! (For those of you who’ve been living under a rock, Dance Central is our awesome new title for Kinect for Xbox 360). We sat down with a crew from the Dance Central team to talk about game and character design, music, and a few top secrets.
Lead designer Dean Tate dishes on what it was like moving from Bioshock to the world of Dance. Artist Eliot Min clues listeners in on some of Dance Central’s early routines while choreographers Frenchy and Marcos offer up some insider info on the DC characters. There’s tons of great stuff in here so be sure to take a listen – at the end Mr. Pope wraps things up with a new, “Rock Band News” segment and our usual DLC roundtable.
