April Fools: Harmonix finds love with Romance Central

The makers of Rock Band and Dance Central are transitioning from rock to romance with Romance Central.


Did anyone seriously think World of Warcraft had the romance market cornered? Such thinking is absurd, especially to the folks at Harmonix. The makers of Rock Band and Dance Central have their own matchmaking game for the gaming public, one cheekily titled Romance Central.

Romance Central has users fill out a personality profile before setting them up with an eligible dancer. Does romance bloom from there? Who knows? What we do know is in true Harmonix fashion, there's a rocking soundtrack involved, so be sure to fill out the whole thing with the volume turned up.

A Unity plug-in is required, so make sure you're equipped before taking the Romance Central quiz.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
