Eat your heart out DDR and Dance Evolution. This was one of Atari's laserdisc projects, although I hadn't seen it on any games list before this. Unearthed by the Strong National Museum of Play:

Looks really interesting. I loved laser disk games back in the day, and was fascinated by them. I really thought they were the wave of the future! Shows what I know. LOL

In a way they were, they just needed the right kind of games behind them. I recently got my hands on The Spectre Files: Deathstalker which was originally developed for LD, but was canned like all of the Atari projects. While it isn't the perfect arcade game (as you can play for a half hour on one credit when you figure out some of the good clues), it's a lot of fun.
