Giana Sisters Goes Dieselpunk in an Exclusive Kickstarter Crossover

NEW FREE LEVEL AVAILABLE FOR AWARD-WINNING JUMP’N’RUN ADVENTURE

Offenburg, 7th, May 2014 – Black Forest Games clashes diesel-machinery with rainbows and jazzy hairdos of the Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams universe in a unique indie crossover featuring their award-winning jump’n’run and the upcoming action arcade game Dieselstormers. This free to download crossover is the next best thing to playing the actual prototype, which is currently available for free on Kickstarter

Dieselstormers continues to perform very well on the crowdfunding platform. Just a few days after the campaign was launched, more than 600 backers have pledged about USD 25,000. Meaning the project is halfway through reaching its funding goal. The first level - which players can try in the prototype - has been adapted to fit perfectly into the world of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams. It’s now available on Steam for free, as well as for the Giana Sisters add-on Rise of the Owlverlord. This isn't the first time Giana fans received additional free content. Last fall, for example, Black Forest Games released a special Halloween level.

“We are well aware that we have to thank our backers and customers for the huge success of Giana Sisters. It’s natural to reward our players with free content from time to time,” says Andreas Speer, Managing Director at Black Forest Games. “The new DLC also enables Giana fans to get an early glimpse at what to expect from our next project, Dieselstormers.”  

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams was released in October 2012 and has now reached more than a million downloads. The game is currently nominated for the German Computer Games Award as “Best German Game” and “Best Kids Game”.
