Run, jump, dash, and twirl your way through Giana’s twisted dreams!

Project Giana is a fast-paced hardcore platformer with dual worlds that Giana will morph between as she seeks to escape. Use your skill, your speed, your brains, and your powers to defeat the horrors that populate her two nightmares.

With intuitive controls and smooth gameplay, you’ll be able to leap right in and start helping Giana progress through her opposing dreamworlds. Cute Giana moves with speed and grace, twirling past hazards and adversaries with a light touch and gentle heart. But, Giana isn’t limited to soft solutions. With a quick morph her punk side comes out to play, full of raw attitude and a powerful dash to crush obstacles that block her way!

Plus, when Giana morphs, she doesn’t just change herself, but also her perception of the entire world. As the world changes, so too do her interactions with it, revealing different paths and dangers and a wide range of fantastic tools that Giana can utilize. The dream also conceals gems, and the truly adventurous can find secret areas and greater rewards deep within.

Amazing worlds await you within Giana’s dreams! The vivid colors and astonishing graphics coupled with the wondrous morph create an experience unlike any you’ve had before. You’ll swim. You’ll glide. You’ll travel by bubblegum, super bouncers, conveyer belts, blocks, rocks, and even ride turtles. You will travel through clouds, trees, castles, and caves with more danger, magic, and all around fun than you can shake a spikey bracer at!

Want more? Wasn’t getting chased by hordes of angry creatures, stung by jellyfish, stabbed by spikes, crushed by stones, burned by fire and dissolved by acid enough for you? All right then, we should probably mention the epic Boss Battles too! Gigantic creatures from the depths of Giana’s most horrific nightmares are here to play too. Seriously, these guys are just plain brutal. And you’re going to need to master everything you’ve learned to have any hope of defeating them!
