XBLA Today: Rhythm Party, Double Fine Happy Action Theater

It’s Kinect Day on the Xbox Live Arcade as today’s update features a pair of Kinect games that promise to turn your living room into a magical adventure or a trippy dance party. But then, aren’t all dance parties trippy?

Double Fine Happy Action Theater has been priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and even though its long title sounds trippy, it’s actually a magical living room game for the Harry Potter in all of us:

Are you annoyed at how little magic you are able to shoot from your fingers? Have you ever tried to get grandma to do the worm, but all she would do is just stand there? Have you ever noticed how your living room doesn’t have any hot lava in it? And who designed this living room anyway?! It doesn’t even have any buildings to smash! Well, Double Fine Happy Action Theater can solve all of these problems and more! You will also be able to clone yourself or hang out in a plate of jelly if you want. And when you’re done with that, maybe you will want to feed some pigeons or have a snowball fight. There are 18 amazing ways that Double Fine Action Theater will enhance your life! And up to 5 of your friends’ lives too!

So that leaves Rhythm Party, which has also been priced at 800 Microsoft Points/$10, to help you unleash your inner raver:

Rhythm Party is a rhythm action game developed exclusively for Kinect on Xbox Live Arcade! Brought to you by the Dance Masters development team, it transforms your entire body into a controller. No need for choreography anymore. You’re the choreographer and the dancer! When your body appears at the center of the screen, just dance! Game play is simple: Use your arms and legs to hit the Ripples in time with the rhythm while you create an original performance. Your performance skills are the key! With a soundtrack recorded largely in collaboration with top international artists, and different special effects for every song, this game is guaranteed to get your body moving and your blood pumping!
