Project Ravensdale launched on Kickstarter.com

We are back to Kickstarter, because we believe in the power of crowdfunding. We succeeded with our previous campaign, we met our goal and we delivered on our promises, releasing Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams to multiple platforms before we set our sights on a new project.

This time we are set on creating a new game from the ground up, completely from scratch. New ideas, new concept, from beginning to end, no holds barred.

That's why we are kickstarting. Creating a game this way is risky, it might get dirty, but we really wouldn’t have it any another way! Kickstarter puts all the creative power in our hands and we don't want to waste this gift of freedom in order to play it safe. We will be looking for possible distribution deals in the future to further support the project, but the creative control will remain with us.

GSTD released on PSN!

Black Forest Games proudly announces that their twisted platformer, GIANA SISTERS: TWISTED DREAMS has been released in the US and EU Regions through PlayStation network for PS3. The game is now available for $14.99 (14.99€ in Europe).

After a hugely successful campaign on Kickstarter and successful releases for Windows-PC and Xbox360, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – grandchild of the 80s classic game “The Great Giana Sisters” – is now finally available in the US and Europe on Sony’s PlayStation 3.
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is a challenging fast-paced platformer with a twist and an amazing Soundtrack from game music legend Chris Hülsbeck, Fabian Del Priore and SID-metal-rockers Machinae Supremacy. Players have to muster all their skills, speed, brains, and powers to defeat the dangers that populate Giana's twisted dreams!

"To have Giana finally on PS3 shows that we deliver on our promises made during our Kickstarter. Many projects have been successfully funded so far, but we are one of very few who actually delivered a game," Adrian Goersch, Black Forest Games’ Managing Director states.

Cute Giana moves with speed and grace, twirling past hazards and adversaries with a light touch and gentle heart. 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!

Go get it while it's fresh!
