Software Overview

StepMania is a fun rhythm and dance game that requires users to synchronize keystrokes with music. It also is an engine used by In the Groove and Pump It Up Pro games.

The purpose of the game is to hit the correct arrows on the keyboard, or dance pad, as they appear on the screen. When you hit the arrows, the better timing you have, the more points you receive. You can play in single player or in multiplayer mode, which also offers online gameplay.

StepMania allows you to customize many of its features. It provides a step editor that enables you to create and edit custom song files that contain song information and dance patterns. You can also create custom themes for the game, whether it be replacing certain images or creating Lua scripts for more customized changes.
