If you were someone who hadn't heard of the Giana Sisters before this game, you wouldn't be the only one. The Great Giana Sisters was a 1987 platformer which was quite similar to Super Mario Bros., hence the humorously close title. Much later, Giana Sisters DS launched and attempted to get away from the "clone" status of its predecessor. Although there were only two games in the series, it captured many gamers interests and as such the "Project Giana" Kickstarter began.
That campaign finished at the end of August and since then has been doing well. Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams was selected in the second batch of Steam Greenlight games and about ready to launch. Now the game is finally out so platforming fans can get a taste of something new. This is the second game to make it through the Greenlight process, coming after McPixel.
Right now, you can only pick it up on PC, but there are many distribution options. The game is available on Steam, GOG, and even GamersGate. Each of these storefronts has a current sale of 10% off for the title. Although versions are planned for XBLA and PSN, they won't be ready until 2013.
