Here in the offices of the new Xbox, we were pretty interested to hear about a camp at this year’s Burning Man that I totally missed: Dance Dance Immolation. (Actually, I’m not sure if that was the name of the camp; the artists are Interpretive Arson.)
The idea— if I have this right— is that there are two contestants simultaneously dancing (as I guess you can have in Dance Dance Revolution, if you have two dance pads) in flame-resistant clothing who compete against each other in the game. Behind them, judges control flame jets aimed at the contestants, who get blasted when they miss too many steps. Based on the few minutes that I’ve played DDR at home on my Xbox, I suspect that I would’ve been nicely roasted by the end of a session at Dance Dance Immolation.
