Cos I’ve had the time of my life, oh and I owe it all to youuu… and my Dirty Dancing PC video game.


Oh god. Shield your eyes, quick, quick! You better sit down. We have some…some bad news to tell you. Remember that hooker-pink coated ’80s institution of a film you thought you left behind along with polar-fleece cut-off muscle tops, white hi-top Reeboks and that perm you thought *really* complimented your mullet? Yes, I’m talking Dirty Dancing, and the video game it’s being turned into.

Obviously showing us that not even Patrick Swayze is sacred, Codemasters and Lionsgate are collaborating to produce an action-puzzler due to hit every 30-something woman’s PC late this year. Oh, and Graham Norton’s too, I ‘spose.

On Codemaster’s site, they claim you can “work alongside the team at the Kellerman’s resort, play through a fantastic variety of fun mini-games and earn camp dollars to purchase Dirty Dancing memorabilia, cabin furnishings, and the all-important dance lessons with Johnny and Penny. How will you fare in the end of season dance contest?”

Camp dollars, indeed.

Codemasters – Dirty Dancing.
