Performous is an open-source karaoke, band and dancing game where one or more players perform a song and the game scores their performances.
Performous is more than a karaoke game. Instead of just displaying the lyrics, notes are also displayed and the performance is scored based on how well you actually hit the notes.
The game is released under an open source license.
