Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams Logo

Project Giana – a platformer with a twist!

Giana is a girl of polar opposites, trapped in a fractured dream of rainbows and shadows. Harkening back to the 80’s Great Giana Sisters, Project Giana pulls you into a phantasmagorical adventure of contrasting themes underscored with music by Chris Hülsbeck and Machinae Supremacy – classic Giana tunes flow into metal riffs and back again as you switch between dream and nightmare.

Giana’s dual nature is a reflection of the game world. You can warp her dreams at the press of a button, causing Giana herself to shift accordingly. Both the world and Giana will behave differently depending on whether you are in the dream or nightmare, allowing you to master each level with transformative tricks.

Black Forest Games is a newly founded studio comprising the core of the former Spellbound Entertainment team. We’re a group of passionate game developers living at the edge of the Black Forest in southern Germany. Project Giana is our baby, supported by a small but devoted team and funded with our own money.

  1. Video on Kickstarter looks promising!

    Did you already check how much time and effort is needed for a Mac version? I’d gladly donate on kickstarter if there was a Mac part.

  5. i play the original on 64 emulator. this new one looks awesome. i need to save 10$ for the playayble levels. maybe they could port it to all the other platforms if they were assured enough people would be interested to make it feasible. otherwise after selling x amount of copies they could release the source so that the world-wide devs can port it.
