The Dance Commander: Stalin Vs. Martians Trailer

He does. He's famous for it.

Man Raised by Puffins tells us there’s a Stalin Vs. Martians trailer. There is. It’s beneath the cut.


I’ve gone well past the point where I care whether it’s any good or not. It doesn’t matter.


  1. Simon says:

    Other than a comatose framerate, the game looks quite entertaining. Stalin’s got moves

  2. Feet says:

  3. Tei says:

    Now… this one contains more in-game images that others teaser videos. I would download a demo of this game if contais this very music. ( The original command conquer let you choose what music to play, I hope we are not going downhill in the RTS genre)

  4. Senethro says:

    I’m coming to your house…


  5. Nuyan says:

    I know what I want and I want it… NOW!

    ( Awesome trailer, amazing creatures, I hope the clumsy framerate was an attempt to synch it with the music though. )

  6. Andrew Dunn says:


  7. Dorian Cornelius Jasper says:

    Springtime for Stalin.

  8. the probe says:

    I’m going to try some of those moves out next time I hit the club.

  9. The Hammer says:

    That made me silently giggle like an idiot on a late Saturday morning. Everything about that was hilarious. I bet real Stalin wouldn’t like that oneeee bit!

  11. Ceremony says:

    Pushing the envelope

  12. chaves says:

    Russian big shots really like to dance, right?

  13. phuzz says:

    Stalin’s Gulag Dance Party!

  14. Dolphan says:

    Am I still asleep?

  15. Bilharzia says:

    I want to play it, I really do, but I can’t. I feel genuinely bad for passing on what will no doubt be an outstanding gaming experience (based on the number and degree of positive reactions I’ve encountered), particuarly as it’s a game in danger of being overlooked, due to the other, excellent, more widely known RTS’s being released at the same time.

    I even have a great deal of interest in the time period (I’m clearly not alone, or even unique in that), and reguarly read some of the more interesting commentary and other factual writings on the subject.

    That all doesn’t matter though. I just…can’t. Not another WW2 Stalinist Martian game.

  16. Flint says:

    This is the most beautiful thing ever.

    The game better have its cutscenes/mission briefings/whatever in a similar style.

  17. £=D-T=£££ says:

    …I think I might as well just apologise for writing the original version of that comment. I seem to have unintentionally, really annoyed some people.

  18. Tworak says:

    Stalin is awesome.

  19. oddbob says:

    1:08 is most incredible. I never knew Stalin had it in him.

    What a fox.

  20. Marco Almeida says:

    I usually don’t comment in here (don’t ask why, I don’t know either), but this time I had to do it because Stalin rocked my world! :P

    Besides that… the game looks kinda lame :\

  21. Willem says:

    Dance Dance Revolution!

  22. N says:

    my testicles tremble with anticipation

  23. Spd from Russia says:

    what a crying shame
    both the looks and the concept

  24. chipp says:

    Now this is a good trailer :D

  25. Lord_Mordja says:

    Stalin was a fun guy to just hang around with.

  26. Nero says:

    One the most epic trailers I’ve ever seen.

  27. Ian says:

    Oh my.

  28. OJ287 says:

    The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one.

  29. Xercies says:

    Man this trailer brings in a whole new level of weirdness and awesomeness combined.

  30. DMJ says:

    I think I dreamed this last night.

  31. Z says:


  32. Haroshi says:

    command and conquer on mescaline?

  33. A-Scale says:

    The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one.

    Everyone thought that. Everyone but Stalin, that is.


  34. Taillefer says:

    “There will come a time when my work shall not be subject to this Stalinesque censorship. Then I know exactly what I’m going to do…”

  35. Still annoyed says:

    “Stalin was a fun guy to just hang around with.”

    Until he got convinced you were a traitor and had you killed.

  36. Terr says:

    Did I see the Little Green Men from Toy Story 2 there? I never imagined they would try to invade Soviet Russia.

    But what is it with the framerate? I really do hope for the developer’s sake that it was a result of running Fraps or something.

  37. Cabbs says:

    War Of The Worlds could have been so very, very different.

  38. Muzman says:

    There’s great dance move there where it looks like a whole bunch of cockroaches ran up his sleeves.
    So we’ve got dancing Stalin now. Elsewhere tiptoeing tanks and bazooka air guitar.
    Is Russia just completely mad these days?

  40. BlackDingo says:


    I just HAVE to own this game. I also want to know HOW much vodka was consumed in its creation. Seriously. :D

  41. Aftershock says:

    This is a must purchase, purely due to the trailer.

  42. Oak says:

    I am going to buy this game a hundred times.

  43. BeamSplashX says:

    Dawn of War III had better step it up… LITERALLY.

  44. BlackDingo says:

    LOLS! @ BeamSplashX

    Dance, Dance Force Commander! Or perhaps Disco Farseer!

  45. pewpew says:

    my girlfriend cheated on me today.
    this made up for it.

  46. Jason Moyer says:

    The wallpaper images on the official site are possibly more ridiculous than the trailer is. And the game concept sounds incredibly awesome.

  47. Pijama says:

    There is one thing only that can be said here:

    Take that, Red Alert 3 devs.

  48. Neoviper says:

    I only hope the in-game stalin has these moves. Apparently there will be a stalin unit who is fifty feet tall, just like in real life!
