FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Offenburg, 11 December 2012Black Forest Games publishes a new level as an exclusive gift for the Christmas Holidays.

‘Tis the season to be jolly…’ coming this holiday season, Black Forest Games has a special gift prepared for its fans and gamers all over the world: An exclusive Christmas level for Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams.

Giana runs, jumps and ice-skates through a captivating snow-covered winter wonderland, which transforms into a nightmarish barren wasteland at the press of the button. To get into the spirit, the designers created a whole lot of morphing holiday objects to be discovered by the players. And it requires all the skills that players can muster to make it through and to bash the vicious Santa-Owls.

Owners of the game will receive this content automatically. It can be selected via the “Extras” entry in the game’s main menu and is available as a free update on Steam, GOG.COM and GamersGate, as well as the backer versions of the game.

This Level will be also available as a free, stand-alone download on Steam and gog.com, as a gift to gamers who haven’t played the game. Similar to the full length game, players can change between cute and punk Giana, each with their own look and abilities. Anyone craving more morphing madness can always get the full game boasting 23 rich levels across 3 distinct worlds, each transforming into the two dream worlds.

The new Steam version features two major improvements. In addition to the full controller support on Steam, Black Forest Games added Steam Big Picture functionality. Now players will be able to launch the game without the need of their mouse and keyboard and works on TV-sets with 1080p screen resolution.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is available as digital copy on Steam, GOG.COM and Gamersgate.
