City of Titans blasts enemies with funky dance moves

Anyone remember that old console game Moonwalker? You played as the late Michael Jackson who would use his suave moves to defeat enemies. But perhaps the most remembered element was when Jackson could start a dance-off with every bad guy on the screen, making them get down and funky too. It was a real thing and a reason why many of us are not quite right in the head today.

Well, if you miss the lethal combination of dance and combat, then go no further than City of Titans. The team has been experimenting in making hip hop a status effect for hero powers, and boy does it kind of work.

“For the past few weeks, we have been experimenting with soft and hard controls. And then Word Up came on the radio…. then it was obvious what needed to happen,” the devs said.

Don’t believe us? We have actual proof of this craziness after the jump!

I had the Michael Jackson dance moves macro’d for my Thugs Mastermind’s pets. To be able to do it to bad guys is even better.

Thanks for sending me on a Youtube-fueled 80’s music bender, Massively.

No, seriously. Thank you. It was awesome and absolutely what my week needed.

Also, CoT is looking good. I have high hopes!

This would go nice on a The Mask type hero. ^^

I thought this would be dumb, but I have to admit, that is pretty darn funny.

It also opens the idea of players being able to choose different animations for their CC effects. Instead of just being stunned, targets could cower in terror, fall to the ground in worship, levitate up in the air (with optional spinning motion) etc etc.

BTW – the game is looking really nice in general.

Word Up is on my YouTube favorites list. I listen to it all the time. I think this mean I have super powers.

So they pretty much put DC Comic’s Music Meister’s powers into their game…

If it’s music, we can use it. We need to dance…

Rats it’s just a cc, I mean it’s a pretty cool cc but I was hoping for something more involved, also the player doesn’t dance maybe a buff that increases dodge or something.
