'Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams' (ALL) Multiplayer Mode Coming Next Week - Trailer

More than 20 years ago, The Great Giana Sisters made jump-and-run/platformer gaming available for home computer users all over the world.

In Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, the player accompanies the two very dissimilar sisters on a journey to a fantastic world in which the sisters’ different abilities are the key to solving puzzles and defeating terrible monsters. Giana transforms herself with lightning speed to solve puzzles or make use of special abilities. With each transformation, her environment changes too, and only players who skillfully apply the right strategy can complete tricky levels and defeat nasty end-bosses.

Optically and acoustically, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is built on the latest technologies: Vivid colors and astounding graphics, paired with a wonderful soundtrack by Chris Hülsbeck, promise a unique platform game adventure. 

The Giana Sisters are famous for being fearless jump’n’run heroines teaming up to save the world. Would you believe that these sisters, for the first time, will now compete against each other?!

The all new “Dream Rush” competitive mode supports up to four players competing against each other. Run through a fantastic world with lots of obstacles waiting and special boosts to empower the characters. Players gain an advantage by collecting as many power-ups as possible to slow their opponents or blow-up traps and barriers on the way. If methodical planning isn’t the forte of a player it is even possible to switch places with an opponent catapulting one’s character far ahead before the poor guy even knows what happened.

The collection of new levels in “Dream Rush” features a few surprises even for experienced players. What’s more - there’s a special guest: Cosmonaut Comrade comes to visit from the Speedrunners universe!

“Many employees at Black Forest love to play Speedrunners - it was only a matter of time until we started to wonder what a ‘Giana Sisters’ runner title would look like. That led to a playable prototype, which turned out to be so much fun that we didn’t really have any other choice than to turn it into a game mode for Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams,” says Adrian Goersch, Co-Founder of Black Forest Games.

Players who already own the PC title on Steam or GOG can now race against others in an attempt to prove their skill in several new levels, and make their debut on PS4 and Xbox One next week!

Key Features:

  • Challenging levels:  Discover three distinctive worlds with a total of 23 levels, which can be transformed from a colorful dream to an eerie nightmare at the push of a button.
  • Personal style: Regardless whether you dash through the levels in speed-run or take your time to explore every last corner, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams offers something for everyone.  
  • Superb graphics: Dreamlike landscapes transform themselves from lush, resplendent surroundings into surreal, withered nightmare worlds, in which there are always new details to discover.  
  • Intriguing puzzles: Blocked paths open up when Giana transforms herself; lovely flowerbeds mutate into deadly thorn bushes, and some diamonds can only be gathered in one form or the other.
  • Diverse playing modes: The game is challenging in normal mode, but it can be a truly harrowing experience in hardcore and super-hardcore modes.
  • Legendary soundtrack: Listen to Chris Hülsbeck’s music as it transitions from the classic chiptunes to the metal riffs of the Swedish SID-rockers, Machinae Supremacy.
  • Epic boss-battles: Whether devilish demons or powerful end-bosses, you will need every trick in your arsenal to defeat your opponents.
