Repetitive gameplay.

The elite 3D dancing game, ShowUp used to be referred to as ‘5Street’.  This game distinguishes itself from the competition because it offers an immense world where you can explore and interact with your surroundings. ShowUp is actually a dancing MMO combined with a social MMO because there are also many other activities that do not relate to dancing.

Though the name 5Street was changed in America, the game kept the name ‘HighSteet5’ for its fans in Asia. This dancing MMO is 3D and begins to move a direction that other traditional games haven’t, and this is to allow you to do whatever you want to do. What this means is that it offers you a world that is unrelenting where you can dance casually wherever you want, or in lobby-based games that are competitive and have rules. However, since competitions and matches are not specifically defined, you can start or stop dancing in the middle of a song if you want. If you would rather just practice, you will find many solo dance halls in the world that are perfect for this.

In ShowUp you can dance alone, in couples or in groups; whatever you wish! ShowUp’s core gameplay is similar to that of other MMOs related to dancing, but here you are offered much more than dancing. In other words, in ShowUp you can also interact, explore or dance wherever you wish!

To dance in ShowUp you will make use of your keyboard’s directional arrows and spacebar.
