The Great Giana Sisters, if you weren’t around and self aware during 1987, was a platformer released across the Commodore 64 and other home consoles of the time. 2012 sees the ip revitalised via Kickstarter, this time under the name Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams. The game has just seen release on the PC (in part thanks to a great success on Steam’s Greenlight), and is due to have a release on PS3 and Xbox 360 in early 2013.
A platformer featuring the dream hopping Giana, Twisted Dreams follows up on it’s predecessors characterstic soundtrack with music created by Chris Hülsbeck and Machinae Supremacy. Hülsbeck worked on the original Giana Sisters game, whilst Machinae Supremacy bring some Swedish heavy metal chip tune style to proceedings. This is certainly a throwback to the platformers of years (sadly) gone by, when platformers ruled the gaming roost with never a thought given to military FPS’ and MMORPG’s.
