First: Exploit Data

We used a dataset provided by Ubisoft for the game Just Dance because we thought that it could show very different profile of gamers, from casual gamers to esport players. After browsing through thousands of data, we were finally able de define a script to sort what we wanted to use. We also had to improve the dataset with the song style and decade in order to provide what we really wanted for our proof of concept

Ideation

The global idea of our team was to create story telling and a new way to get through all of the level of an arcade game. We wanted to show the gamers a different way to browse the songs and dances library in order to promote cultural diversity and curiosity.

The concept is quite simple each song represents a type of music, a country, an historical period. So what we achieve is a kind of world map where the gamer can travel in time and geographically to discover new style of music and unlock unplayed song/dance
