Dance Praise is a series of dance video games developed by Christian video game developer Digital Praise, with a particular emphasis on Contemporary Christian music. Peter Fokos, CTO of Digital Praise, started the Dance Praise series after his daughter asked him to create a dance game with Christian music for her homeschool exercise program. This series was created to allow children to enjoy dance games with music "fit for young [Christian] ears".
As with other dance games such as the Dance Dance Revolution series, arrows approach a target zone on the bottom of the screen, and the player must step on the corresponding arrow on the dance pad when arrows reach the target zone. Players are judged on their accuracy and timing.
Original Dance Praise
Dance Praise (rebranded as Original Dance Praise when the second version was released), was the first game in the series, released on September 29, 2005. A multiplayer version was also created, Dance Praise Party, supporting up to 10 players.,
Dance Praise 2: The ReMix
Dance Praise 2: The ReMix includes 52 songs from 48 different artists, giving it a wider variety than the Original Dance Praise. It includes many new features not available in the previous game, such as four player support, animated backgrounds, dancing characters, and a new interface. Its system requirements are also higher, requiring a 1 GHz processor and 32MB of video RAM.
Various expansion packs have also been released for the Dance Praise series. Expansion packs are compatible with both released versions of Dance Praise. Most are sold in retail, but a free add-on featuring music by Altared Life was released on January 14, 2007.
The Modern Worship expansion pack was released on June 20, 2006 The expansion focuses on Contemporary worship music, cited by Tom Bean, president and CEO of Digital Praise, as the most requested genre among players.
