Description

Dance Dance Immolation was a Dance Dance Revolution variant with an incredibly hot twist: players were shot with real fire for performing poorly. However, since players were required to wear a flame-resistant suit, there was never any serious risk of harm.

This game was designed to be exhibited at art festivals, and was playable at several different venues throughout the years. Refer to the trivia section for a list of locations and date ranges.
