INFLUENCE

Juke Town was inspired by Footwurk The Legacy, a short film by Akeem Pennicooke that explores footwork’s impact on Chicago’s impoverished communities. As a game-designer and lover of footwork culture, Pennicooke wanted to pair footwork with a new medium and create a video game for footworkers to enjoy.

Many people in the footwork community have wanted a video game for years. We’re working with Chicago footworkers to make that dream a reality.

GOALS

The ultimate goal of Juke Town is to create a small piece of history as a community for everyone to enjoy.

By creating Juke Town, we hope to express the footwork culture through a new medium that promotes fun and entertainment and gives footworkers and the younger generation a new platform to express and promote their art and entrepreneurship skills.

Revenue from the game will go directly back into the development of the game and the Chicago Footwork Community.
