Are the Giana Sisters Trying to Make A Comeback?

For those who don’t know who the Giana Sisters are, Twenty-five years ago, a Mario and Luigi clone duo named “The Great Giana Sisters” hit the stores. Nintendo wasn’t happy with this cheeky approach, so the game vanished from the shelves as quickly as it appeared. Despite the rocky start, or perhaps because of it, Giana has maintained a cult following up to this day. Mario’s parents (Nintendo) decided to let bygones be bygones and a successful Giana title was released on the Nintendo DS in 2009.

Now Since the DS release, Black Forest Games, a games studio from Offenburg, Germany, is attempting to breathed new life into the Giana legacy and needs your support to complete the brand spanking new indie continuation of the cult classic. Project Giana is a twist on the original Great Giana Sisters featuring a dual soundtrack by Giana voice veteran: Chris Hülsbeck and the chiptune metal band Machinae Supremacy. Classic Giana and metal tunes respectively underline the core feature of warping at will between two dream worlds.

If you want to see the game in action now on check out this Youtube video of Black forest Games Project: Giana:
