IMG_0370.JPG

Indie developer Black Forest Games will be bringing their 2012 Kickstarted hit title Giana Sister: Twisted Dreams to the Nintendo Switch. THQ Nordic will be publishing the port, subtitled Owltimate Edition, which includes not only the original game and all its DLC, but also adds new cutscenes, and five new levels to explore. Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is a 2.5D puzzle platformer that originally released on PC as a successor to a Commodore 64 game, The Great Giana Sisters.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams offers classic 2D platforming fun in meticulously detailed 3D environments. Players can turn cute Giana into a punk version of herself at the press of a button, transforming the game’s star, the soundtrack and even the world. This overhaul isn’t merely cosmetic: Giana’s punk persona is a critical to overcoming obstacles and solving particularly tricky situations. In her sweet incarnation, Giana whirls gracefully over obstacles and opponents, but when ‘punked up’ she smashes through stone blocks with mighty dashes and can master her environment by bouncing off walls.

Key Features

  • Impressive abilities: Negotiate tricky level design by wall-running, vaulting and smashing your way through the world, ignoring gravity in the process
  • Intuitive and precise controls: Giana’s powers are numerous, but slick controls enable you to master her skills and pull off expert-level manoeuvres with ease
  • Jaw-dropping worlds: Fantastical, transforming 2D worlds drawn in sumptuous 3D come to life on Nintendo Switch
  • Explore and discover: Pick apart 40 thrilling, secret-filled levels brimming with challenges and surprises
  • Innovative gadgets: Navigate evolving landscapes by utilizing everything around you – fly with bubble gum bubbles, bounce on springs and supercharge your sprints via conveyor belts
  • Epic boss battles: Push yourself to the limits as you battle gigantic creatures from the depths of Giana’s worst nightmares

I remember seeing this box art somewhere and completely writing it off. It really is terrible. I then saw a video of metal jesus recommending the game and I wondered what that game was and how I had never seen it before. Looking for it now its still almost miss-able because of how atrocious the box art is haha

This series is steeped in history and tradition. I kickstart backed the heck out of it and oh my goodness do I find it a bland platformer. The character / setting changing mechanic is cool in look and concept but never got interesting imo. Never played the Owlord DLC or w/e.
