Frets of Fire – free Guitar Hero style game for PC

(via MAKEzine blog)
It had to happen sooner or later.  Nearly every great game for consoles has someone in the open-source or freeware world try to recreate it on the PC (e.g. StepMania from Dance Dance Revolution).  The latest game to get this treatment is the incredibly popular (often referenced by Bill Harris as the greatest game ever) Guitar Hero, now mimicked as Frets of Fire.  Although designed to be played via keyboard, I expect this will soon be setup to work with a Guitar Hero controller, as the hook-up to PC mod has already been worked on.

Frets on Fire is a game of musical skill and fast fingers. The aim of the game is to play guitar with the keyboard as accurately as possible.


A video demonstration of the game is available at YouTube.
