  • Publication number: 20200155926
    Abstract: Provided is a game machine capable of providing guidance so that, at an appropriate timing, the player performs the action of changing from a contacting state in which he/she is contacting a predetermined region to a non-contacting state in which such contact is not performed. The game machine provides a dance game for providing guidance about the performance timing of a dance step, and evaluating the actual step performance timing. The game machine comprises a stage sensor that detects a contacting state in which a foot of a player is contacting a treading surface of the stage, and detects a non-contacting state where such contact is not performed. The game machine also provides guidance about the time of a foot-lifting action as the step performance timing, and evaluates the time as the actual step performance timing, so that a foot-lifting action changing functions as the dance step.

  • Publication number: 20200122034
    Abstract: The present invention provides a game machine that is capable of utilizing movements of at least a part of the body of the player as play actions. A game machine provides a dance game that advises of a performance timing at which an action constituting a dance is to be executed, and, evaluates the actual performance timing of that. The game machine includes a camera which detects either a crouching action that causes the head of a player to move lower than a lower-limit position or a return movement that causes the head to move higher than an upper-limit position. The game machine advises of a timing at which such crouching action or the like is to be executed so that the crouching action or the like function as the actions of the dance, and, when such crouching action or the like is detected, evaluates the actual timing of that.
