Have a question?
I'm still waiting for the Linux version. :/
Hi, I didn't realize I would be getting a Giana Sisters: Rise of the Owlverlord key from backing the kickstarter, and I bought the game for $5 or whatever it was. I forgot to use the key for Rise of the Owlverlord or give it to someone else. Is is allowed, to give the key to someone else? How would I go about getting my key again? I liked both games and finished them. I will probably buy the sequel GS2 on PC.Thanks.
Is there a non steam update of the multiplayer version?
Hi Jan, the music is a mix of the mist energetic GSTD and ROTO tracks. If Dream Rush will get some fans we may consider more of this with new tracks.
What's about new music tracks for the multiplayer levels?
Yes, the PS4 and XboxOne versions will include the 'Sweet Dreams' mode. Even better, we added a feature that enable you to select any world you want without the need to have finished the ones before.
And yes, Giana Sisters 2 will be on PC.
And we have another news for you: Next week's Friday we will release an update for GS:TD on Steam. This will give you a local multiplayer mode. You can't wait another ten days? So watch out for our Backer exclusive update this Friday :)
I was excited to see the news that Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is now heading to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One! But I'm curious: Will these new console releases include the easier "Sweet Dreams" mode from the PC version? Would love to play with my son, but the PS3 version makes him pull his hair out :)
Is Giana Sisters 2 coming out on PC? And do backers at the $10 level get the soundtrack free on steam?
I just read a news message that a "Giana SIsters 2" game will be in development and released somewhere next year but... it will NOT be available for PC? I was hoping the PC would remain the preferred platform, actually.... Could you guys enlighten us on this news?
I love this game, and I just recently bought an additional copy for my PS3.
Hi fellow backers, if you like adventure games or SciFi backgrounds, please consider helping Stasis to reach its final stretch goal : http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bischoff/stasis-2d-isometric-scifi-horror-adventure-game
Thanks very much for this great Game!
No news about the new Halloween 2013 extra level?
Available in both GS:TD basic game and in ROTO standalone expansion (steam versions)
No idea if (when) it is (would be) available for non-steam versions (GoG, other digital retailers, drm-fee backer versions...).
699 gems to be found in this level.
I've found 994 gems on my first run... but i died 49 times! in hard mode of course.
Any word on the $300,- Tier figurine? It's been over a year and is becoming ridiculous.
No replies from your backers e-mail address any more either. So, what's up with that?
I'm still waiting for the drm-free version of Giana Sisters: RotO?
I have no use for a steam key.
Thank you for clarification :)
Xzoltan : the emaiul is a copy of the update, all backers get it.
The expansion is free if :
-You have backed 'Project Giana/Twisted Dream' at $25 tier or more.
-You have backed the unsuccessful Ravensdale Campaign at $15 or more.
If you have backed both project at the required tiers you get 2 keys.
I backed this game with the 10 USD tier. I got en email saying I'd be getting the expansion key, but when I request a key I only get the key for the original game. Now I don't expect the expansion for what I backed with, but I'd still like to know if it's only from a certain tier people are getting the expansion? Thanks!
Already bought Rise of the Owlverlord lol. Didn't realise we were getting a key given to us :\
No, only PC Version. Look at description. Spend x $ (don't know how much it would cost in WiiU-Shop) for WiiU again, this game is too cheap for price so put your money in this game again :) I think developer would be happy to see that you like this game.
I backed for $10, does this give me a digital version on WiiU or just the PC release?
still working on the patch? ;-)
If you like turn-based tactical miniatures combat boardgames, you should look to this KS campaign :
Nyx studio is trying to adapt the 1993 boardgame Legions of Steel to mobile devices (iOS&Android) and PC (Windows).
So the DLC is available for pre-purchase on Steam while the DRM free versions (backer, GoG, Gamersgate) haven't even recieved the easy mode patch. It's a shame really. I had great confidence in this project when I backed it. Was very happy to see that the actual game was every bit as awesome as was promissed, but since then Black Forest Games as a company has been handling things disappointingly: the unread mails from people, the inability to to include all backers on the mailing list when sending out updates, and now the favouritism towards one platform seems to be reaching extremes.
A real shame, because the project had been worth it.
there will soon be an anouncement regarding 'Rise of the Owlerlord' so stay tuned.
We are still working on the easy mode patch for the DRM-free version and when we have any news about it we will inform you asap. Sorry it is taking us so long.
End of August is behind us... any news about 'Rise of the Owlverlord' ?
@Francis, With the way Ravensdale went, I'm not too sure what went wrong. It looked awsome. Has the economy gone that bad in such a short time? Makes you wonder.
Hopefully BFG has a plan for the future, they have my support as always.
Did I miss the easier mode release for the DRM-free version? Or has it not yet been released?
Does anyone know?
I look at Nian's comment from may 22 and so far, to my great surprise and disapointment, things are not easier. In fact, with 20 days to go, Project Ravensdale is just shy of 40K pledged on 500K. Call me a spammer if you want, I just want to help BFG, who by the way delivered with Giana, to be successful in their actual KS campaing. Thank you.
well.. daily sale on steam... for 2,99€ I feel somehow not so good for that lol..
thanks guys.. guess i need to try harder.. i went all the way back to the beginning :/ lol
Today the live show at the same time as Konamis... Pre E3 Show... OK. Hope you tell us something about the WIIU Version :). And hope for more information of Ravensdale. If its a platformer with Hack and Slash and or Adventure Elemts or ?
Hello Shaun, that gate is rusted shut and won't open no matter what you do. To access this stash, you'll need a different angle of approach. Keep your eyes peeled for suspicious gem patterns nearby. :)
I got stuck at a place in Owlbeak Castle trying to get all the crystals. Should this gate open for one of the modes?
@BFG, Sounds ominous. Definitely keeping an eye out for Ravensdale, will it be a new kickstarter? You know with the fanbase you have earned and the experience you gained, any new kickstarter will be significantly easier.
Thank you Crazywater, glad to hear that you enjoyed our Giana Kickstarter presentation. I didn't realize that we had backers in the audience - for some reason, that makes me really happy. :)
@ Nian: Stay tuned for news about a project codenamed "Ravensdale" this summer!
Just wanted to say thank you for the honest and awesome talk at ZHDK today! As far as Kickstarter projects go, I thought yours was the most dedicated and professional one I have ever funded. You rock =)
Thats great news.
BTW, Whats the next project to come? I'm looking forward to what Black Forest Games has in store for us, maybe another kickstarter? :)
We've ordered everything, just waiting on the manufacturer to deliver, as soon as enough items come in that match your package, we'll send it. You'll get an email from firstname.lastname@example.org when it's been shipped.
Just wondering how the replacement physicial items are going. Is there an ETA for replacement posters?
OK.. PSN Version first, then WiiU Version, after that Shield and Linux/Ubuntu and ... All version get the easy sweet dreams mode now? Thats how I heard it at the Live Show.. Giana Twisted Dreams DLC will released in summer (July) this year... And your new project that you want to reveal in 2 weeks is already known: Ride to Hell: Route 666 for xbla and psn...? When all the news on the internet are true then you work now on Giana DLC, Hell Route 666, RavensDale, Giana Sisters 2 and ....
The latest patch was the Xmas patch, since the XBLA and PC DVD release we've been working on the DLC update :)
I do not play Giana on Steam and have not played for a while. What is the latest version of Giana? Still the XMas patch? Are you working at new updates at the moment? Thanks and regards
I have to say that I really feel cheated with the game now on the Xbox. I backed this game with $50 and now if I want to play it on the 360 (the platform I wanted to play it on in the first place) I will have to pay again with no kind of discount at all. If I had known it was going to be on XBLA so soon I would not have backed the project at all and just waited for the xbox version.
Most likely! But WiiU is entirely figured out yet since it's still a few months away, the closer we get the more info we will have for you guys. PS3 port is kind of taking over our lives right now. ;)
Will the WiiU eshop Version (there are lot of good news from Nintendo today and yesterday from GDC and Dan Adelman https://twitter.com/Dan_Adelman ) still have the exclusive Sweet Dreams Mode that Vladimir Ignatov once mentioned on the first live show of this year?
@ Peter: No, It will definitely come out on WiiU, we are just doing the Ps3 port first, and we have to do them once at a time :)
@Black Forest Games so your sort of unconfirmed but speculatively saying that this might come to the WiiU shop? @_@
http://kck.st/X7BwGR awesome music and a procedural underwater animation system by the original Ecco the Dolphin team! give it a look and backing if you can, so we can all explore this future world they are trying to create!
OH boxes from big N. I think its this then or ?
