We are currently planning to release Project Giana on PC (for Windows), with subsequent releases on XBLA and PSN, and we are open to additional platforms in the future.Last updated:
Yes! That's how we play it right now most of the time.Last updated:
OLD ANSWER: We plan to release on Steam. And we'd love to reward our backers with free Steam keys though we still need to negotiate the terms with Valve.
UPDATE: Giana is currently going through the Steam Greenlight process. If we pass (and we think we will), we WILL have free Steam keys for our backers! Those keys are a bonus, and will be given in addition to the DRM-free download.Last updated:
Of course you can! And as stated in the reward tiers we'll ship the physical rewards free of cost no matter where you live.
For our European friends without a credit card there are other options:
UPDATE: Now that we have reached our goal, you can also back us via PayPal! More details here:
One possible solution is to buy a Ukash voucher, then convert it into a Ukash NEO pre-paid Mastercard. From there, you can use it with Amazon's payment system.
Another option is to get a "Virtual Visa Card". This is a pre-paid virtual card designed for Europeans. You can find more information about it here: http://www.visaeurope.com/en/cardholders/virtual_cards.aspxLast updated:
How many titles will the soundtrack have? How many from Chris Hülsbeck and MaSu? Can we get it in FLAC format?
The soundtrack will have over a dozen titles, with roughly a 50/50 distribution between Chris Hülsbeck and Machinae Supremacy.
FLAC format will be provided in addition to MP3 for the digital version.Last updated:
Is there a way to stop the music from switching? I prefer one of both music styles/find the transition jarring.
Yes, you'll be able to set in the options menu whether you prefer to hear Chris Hülsbeck's tracks, Machinae Supremacy's, or both.
Please note that the music and transitions are still a work in progress. The transitions are currently at an early stage and will be significantly smoother in the final game.Last updated:
I've already pledged for an exclusive tier, but you've added digital rewards to lower tiers! Can I get those as well?
Certainly! We can't change the reward text for obvious reasons, but the alternate costumes and the background customizer are yours!Last updated:
Due to popular demand, we've introduced upgrades - you can add $10 to any tier to get an extra gift version of the digital download in addition to your tier rewards and $20 to any non-digital tier (i.e. one that requires shipping) to get an additional DVD in an illustrated case.
You can also add $30 for both the digital gift version and the DVD. Like the $20 upgrade, this requires your tier to already involve shipping.Last updated:
The preview levels only worked with XInput (e.g. Xbox 360) controllers. Will that be the case for the final game?
We will support all common controllers in the final game. Giana is still a work in progress; we haven't implemented all the features yet.Last updated:
