Official Fact Sheet:
Happy Feet is an immersive adventure game filled with song and dance that puts the player in the ?tap shoes? of Mumble, a young penguin born into a nation of singing Emperor Penguins. Unfortunately, Mumble can?t sing a note…but he can tap dance something fierce! Mumble?s inability to find his ?Heart-Song? means that he can never truly belong, or more importantly, win the affection of his beloved Gloria, one of the most sought-after penguins in the nation. Following the general storyline of the film, the player will be able to experience life from the point of view of Mumble; in exploration, music, dance and interaction with the friends and enemies of the penguin?s world. You will become Mumble from fluffy toddler to confident adult as you belly-slide, kick, break, swim and dash through the enormity of Antarctica. The playful and lively music soundtrack complements the exciting rhythm matching game play and two-player dance-off competitions. Mumble will leave the colony an outcast, but return a hero, using his unique toe-tapping talent to save the Emperor Nation!
