Giana Sisters - Kickstarter project

Post by kaiserpc » Fri Aug 24, 2012 5:20 am

Hi,

I see the developers of the original Giana Sisters are making a follow up. They're looking to raise development/publishing funds through kickstarter - but struggling to get 100% with only 7 days to go. I see Chris Hulsbeck and Machinae Supremacy are doing the music :-)

(surprised this hasn't been posted on the forum already - tried a search for "giana kickstarter" but it came back empty)

For what it's worth I really enjoyed the iOS port of Giana Sisters, I thought it played very nicely

I'd definitely buy another title if it was released, wouldn't fund it though. I hate the idea of actually stumping up my cash for a product still in development.

Those visuals look a bit lame as well, 3D doesn't suit :(

They've released a rough demo:

If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

So the sisters have been reduced to begging for money? Times are tough, eh?

They should have got a good, dependable, job like those Mario brothers. People will always need plumbers.

Wise fwom your gwave!!!

I saw this just earlier tonight and wondered whether there was a thread (haven't been following RG much lately). I think this is it, assuming the Kickstarter project was the to-be-released-soon Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams. It's going to be available on GoG and Steam tomorrow (in about one hour, in Steam's case).

For those who've not seen it, there is a video on GoG's store page ... impressive ...

It is an absolutely brilliant platformer, and I have written a full review on my Retro Spirit blog here:

I hope you enjoy the review and go out and buy the game! :D

I've reviewed this for Retro Gamer this month :)
It's a great little game, but I really don't like the difficulty spikes in it. It's probably a high 7 for me. I'd love to see where the franchise goes from here though.
