StepManiaX is the latest generation of step based Exergaming and Step Revolution’s highly anticipated return to the dance game industry. The software utilizes a dance pad that users step on, to the beat of music.
When it comes to step detection, it is arguably one of the most important parts of a step based music game. StepManiaX’s hardware took over 2 years of development and utilizes robust industrial design and traditional pressure sensors to create an intelligent input and LED based lighting system. This impressive combination provides indestructible hardware that is visually appealing and with ongoing calibration to always provide an optimum play experience, without the typical maintenance required by traditional systems.
The entire system is compact and reliable to help minimize maintenance and technical knowledge needed to withstand rigorous operation within demanding environments.
For navigation, a large touchscreen helps provide the ultimate user experience that is easily manipulated by users of all generations.
In addition to using familiar cardinal directions (Left, Down, Up, Right), StepManiaX utilizes an additional center position that helps promote continuous movement and unique step patterns.
There are over 300 songs (and more continually added) which gives a wide selection and some old familiar favorites that have been revived from past Step Revolution titles. StepManiaX features a plethora of catchy and energetic music that appeals to Western and European audiences.
There are four modes of single difficulty (Basic, Easy, Hard, Wild) and 3 modes of double difficulty (Dual, Full, Team – which is shared between 2 people) Configurable options allow players to customize speed, note skin, effects, and many other settings. Veteran players can also keep track of their accomplishments with the StepManiaX mobile app. In summary, the system is already loaded with content and always receiving updates to provide hours of entertainment for all skill levels.
