    The Studio Black Forest (funded by the original Giana Sisters creator) has a Kickstarter for some time already.
    It's meant to back their new Giana Sisters game. And the game is coming with not just some graphical improvements. But with a lot of gameplay additions, that seems to make the game a whole lot more interesting and unique.

    It's showing a lot of potential, for a game that originally was a Mario clone.


    Since the time for backing up the project is near the end, and I thought it was cool, I'm bringing it here (nobody is paying me for that ..........unfortunately u.u )

    If you want to back the project, you have a week to do so.
    Visit the Kickstarter and take a look at all the new additions: http://www.kickstart...a/project-giana

    Never heard of the original Giana Sisters before but, from what I've seen in the video, this looks wonderful! Love the visuals along with the "twisting" concept and transitioning between alternate versions of the soundtrack. I just donated a bit! ^_^

    But can they ever hope to top the original game's cover art?

    Read that this game will have water levels also ...that's a new mechanics for the series, since Giana never swum in any other game.

    alot of new enemies and bosses will be added depending on how well the Kickstarter goes too.

    They released a prototype demo! http://project-giana.com/download/
    I am downloading it right now.
    They have 20000$ left and 5 days to go... Do you think they will reach the goal?

    Those who don't recognise it: I don't think it was ever released in the US.

    It looks like a pretty awesome platformer. I hope it sees the light of day but I never back stuff on Kickstarter...

    Would have backed it if it weren't just for PC but for 360, PS3 also

    Edit: the pledge reward I mean

    I did think the DS version was pretty fun. It did feel different enough from SMB but it never got the recognition it deserved. Hopefully this Kickstarter can make it a rather noteworthy name in indie platforming.

    I really enjoyed the DS game, it was far better than most games people cream over.

    I backed this, the price was right and the release isn't far away if it's successful. I love how they could have just made the same game but instead put the effort into doing more.

    I would back, but no promise of a steam key to a backer, just the DRM free download.

    edit: ah fuck it why not

    I played the demo yesterday and it`s pretty good! It is quite unique as well...

    I really hope this will get to WiiU or 360 eventually of it`s getting a release.

    I wonder if that would have added to the final amount they needed to reach, especially with them trying to release it soon. I know Microsoft and Sony tend to make smaller/indie companies jump through a lot of hoops to get stuff up on their marketplaces. :unsure:

    The demo was very good although it could use some polishing and I couldn't stand the keyboard controls. Still the art and graphics were fantastic and it has some really nice gameplay ideas. The franchise has really gone a long way from a Mario clone to an ambitious new platformer.

    If they manage to get more investment over it, can be possible, since they did a exclusive DS game once.

    If the get 300k with the Kickstarter it will be released to OUYA too, so making it run on the WiiU would be probably easy.

    But I'm afraid they may not even get the 150k before the kickstart time ends. Well, lets see ...I hope they do.

    That was done by a different development team that was a backed by a publisher, plus times were different then. It's harder to get a game like this to be published without having to adhere to what the publisher wants. They had publishers interested but the terms and conditions weren't good for them so to keep the game the way they want it to be they did a Kickstarter.
