Offenburg, October 28th 2013 – Shortly after the release of the stand-alone add-on  GIANA SISTERS: TWISTED DREAMS – Rise of the Owlverlord for PC Black Forest Games strikes again.  On Monday 28 th  the indie-studio releases an action-packed Halloween level full of owls, pumpkins and challenging Jump’n’Run fun. There will be two modes: normal and hardcore. The DLC will also be available for GS: TD Rise of the Owlverlord and it will be for free.

Adrian Goersch, Managing Director of Black Forest Games explains: “That’s our way to celebrate Halloween with all the Giana Sisters fans out there. Knowing that the question will be raised: Since there is an extensive submission process required for consoles, we are currently not working on bringing the DLC to PSN, XBLA or WiiU. For all those playing Giana on console: there are several things planned for 2014.”

Giana Sisters:Twisted Dreams is the only Kickstarter-funded game to be released on every major current-gen platform.
