Independent game developer Black Forest Games announces that the standalone add on to GIANA SISTERS: TWISTED DREAMS will be released on Steam on September 26. GSTD - Rise of the Owlverlord will be available for $4.99 (€4.99). Pre-order starts on September 12th with a 20 percent discount – and a special Team Fortress 2 hat as added bonus.
After defeating the evil Dragon Gurglewocky, Giana is captured by the sinister Owlverlord. In order for her to escape, she must overcome new locations like the Flying Factory, the deep Black Forest and battle her way through an airship armada, before she reaches the Owlverlord’s lair, where she faces him in an epic battle. Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Rise of the Owlverlord features seven fresh levels, a new boss and more exciting tracks from Chris Hülsbeck, Fabian del Priore and Machinae Supremacy. The story of Giana’s capture and fight against the Owlverlord and his minions will be told in narrative loadings screens between levels.
This additional adventure is free for all backers of the Project Giana Kickstarter who pledged 25$ or more. After a hugely successful campaign on Kickstarter and releases for Windows-PC, Xbox360, PS3 and WiiU, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is the first Kickstarted project that hits all major gaming platforms.
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Rise of the Owlverlord Features
• More Levels – Seven challenging new levels.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is an aesthetically pleasing journey that’s as gorgeous as it is taxing, blending new ideas and old concepts in the same way punk and cute Giana co-exist.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams looks, plays and sounds terrific. The challenge is balanced nicely with the tight controls and frequent checkpoints, and failure never became overly frustrating. _

“…it's a very thoughtfully arranged, challenging platformer that six months after its initial release holds up just as well. This currently is, quite frankly, the jump and run of choice.”
