Project Giana kickstarter

Music sounds great at least.

If they made a Mac version, I'd pledge. I love the concept of fan-funded games, Wasteland 2 was my first investment.

Those screenies look really ace! The music department is well taken care of also I see.

This game -must- come to exist.

Quick calculations:

Current average pledge is $24 and the current amount required per day to reach the goal is $4265

So they need 177 average pledgers per day, every day, for the next month.

Might happen, but I doubt it...

5000 usd in 5 hours. Looks promising. But it is only the initial wave. I cross my fingers.

It look pretty damn great, imo. People have been complaining about the artstyle and that it should look more like the DS version, but I hated the graphics in that. This seems much more like a proper Giana Sisters sequel than a re-imagining. Love the new gameplay mechanics as well.

I kicked in $25. Gotta have that soundtrack!

Gorgeous graphics, nice soundtrack. Gameplay looks like the 2.5D platformer Pandemonium.

A playable demo is out. I quite like it, although it has moments that make me angry. Also it seems my computer is not powerful enough as the game slows down time to time. Anyway, it still has my support.

Its only a demo, optimization is at the end of the project if there is time left over for it

Very buggy at the moment. You can fall through the graphics or get stuck in the graphics.

And 500 times it was true. No need to make it sound worse than it really is.

Well, actually since it will be the end of the world on 21th December 2012, you will probably never play the game

You'd better spend your money on buying a house in Pic de Bugarach:

Well, I got to go, I want to play Another World, Rick Dangerous and other games in which you die a lot, in order to be prepared when the day comes

This is actually not nice looking, the game has lost character, unlike the brilliant DS version of it where the hand-drawn characters were full of charm. They should have stuck to that style and make it similar to Rayman Origins (which is one of the most beautiful games released)

Less than 30.000, but only 5 days remaining. I really hope the game will be released finally. But I agree that the main character lost a charm, it finally utilises the idea of sisters though.
