They have reached the basic goal, so the game will be finished. (Thats great news!)

And they accept now Paypal too, for those not having a credit card.

I am glad they managed it. If the game will keep the quality of those demolevels plus bugs reduced and if they will add all those promised music tracks from CH and MS, I will be satisfied.

Spotted the game on Steam today!

a little less than 14 euros/bucks, well worth it methinks.

Was it any different when people were copying over music tapes? Its not related to modern times or the internet, its just us rotten humans doing what we've always done

No loss for the devs anyway, people who pirate these cheap games wouldn't have bought the game under any circumstance, including when they wouldn't be able to pirate.

It's a crowdfunded project, so who gives a shit. Definitely not the devs.

If it were available for linux or mac i'd buy it too. given it isn't I'll let it pass. looks nice though. I wasn't a huge giana fan back in the day though.

I have just completed the 6th level, playing it on my notebook via keyboard. The game is great, except two points. In level 1-5 there is a high jump, which is almost impossible to perform with keyboard. Tried more over 100 times (really). And then the boss at the end of level 1-6... probably the most annoying boss I ever met. It is absoultelly unclear how to beat him. I finally did, but I am not sure how. Took me more than half a hour and I lost about 50 lives there, fortunatelly in adventure mode there are unlimited lives. The boss looks very nice, but it is a pure pain to fight him.

I will buy xbox controller probably, especially for this game, which is really good. But few points should be adjusted I think.

And the soundtrack is just superb. I have it in my car at the moment, listening while driving to work.

It's their nature. They aren't creative, so they do what they can do best...

My question is WHY????

Giana Sisters is one of the worst games ever. The original is bad enough.

My bad:



"INSTALL NOTES

1. Unpack the release
2. Mount or burn image
3. Install
4. Play the game
5. Support the companies, which software you actually enjoy!
"

I'm guessing FOL won't even contemplate playing from his reaction! :P

I got to say the original is of my liking, and the Nintendo DS sequel very much so.
Gave this a try briefly and got bored immediately after the 3rd level. It's really awful.

True, but not my instension. I just want to understand why so many people like the original game.

To me its just a MarioWorld rip off. I even didnt like the music, has to be the only huelsbeck tune I dont like.

People who have backed this game should have received a Steam Key and a unlock key for goodies in a private downloadable link mail for the game itself and the DRM-free OST, pity if you folk's go for the cracked version, if it really exists.
