Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Rise of the Owlverlord is a blistering platformer with morphing worlds, featuring seven brand new levels, a new boss and new gripping tracks from Chris Hülsbeck and Machinae Supremacy!

Dash through tricky levels and transform the whole world at will in this fast-paced platformer. Rise of the Owlverlord combines graphics that pack a visual punch and tight controls with the challenge of retro era platforming. Fluidly morph between two dynamically different dream worlds to solve puzzles and combat grueling enemies and bosses. You’ll have to intertwine perky Giana's twirling jump with punky Giana's hammering dash attack to survive her dual nightmare.

Patch Notes for Version 1.1.2

- Fixed a bug that caused shadows to flicker in the DX10/11 version. Some minor glitches are still visible in level 2-7 on the ships.
- Fixed similar issue that also caused shadows to flicker (shadow bias).
- Fixed a new issue that increased loading times. Levels are back to their full loading speed.
- Fixed a crash that occurred when plugging in a USB sound card or when starting the game with a deactivated sound card.
- Fixed a crash occuring on completion of level 2-6 in Über Hardcore mode. (Yikes! We’re so sorry!)
- Fixed a bug that prevented the game from running on some systems when clicking PLAY.
- Resolved a display bug that showed a sliver of one screen edge on another in most areas. This issue can still occur under water.

Cheers,
Your BFG Team
Product Update - Valve
Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams was Just Updated

Patch Notes for Version 1.1.1

Updates:

- A remixed mode for all levels and bosses. The remixed mode is a lot easier to survive than its standard counterpart. The “easy” difficulty for Giana should roughly correspond to the “normal” difficulty for casual platformer games. And, of course, the standard and hardcore modes are still there.
- The code has been optimized further to boost the performance of GSTD (DirectX10/11 mode only). The improved framerate should be the most noticeable on mid-range machines that required lower graphical settings to run smoothly in the previous version.
- Added Japanese and Russian language support
- Added in-game menu for basic audio and controller settings
- Uber-hardcode achievement fix, finally those of you who managed to beat the game will get the achievement you deserve (all you need is to beat one level in uber hardcore and you should be awarded with the achievement if you have already played through every level in that mode).

Bug fixes:

- Fixed an issue that caused a black screen after starting a level in DX9 mode with some AMD/ATI setups
- Fixed a crash that could occur when playing fullscreen in DX9 mode
- Fixed a resolution issue occurring with the Steam overlay (fuzzy graphics)
- Fixed a bug that clipped the mouse, keeping you from clicking on part of the interface
- Twisting the world now causes the background to wobble properly again
- Greatly reduced the amount of flickering for shadows in DX10/11 mode
- Fixed inconsistent particle effects
- Soft shadows can now be properly selected in the menu again
- Fixed a crash that could occur when launching level 3-5
- V-sync can now be set properly above 60 Hz
- Fixed a launcher crash that could occur when starting the game
- Fixed a crash with the error message “MSVCP100.dll is missing”

Language selection update:
- Setting your language now follows the Steam standards and is done from the Steam menu instead of the launcher
- How to set your language after the update:

-Open the Steam Library
-Right click on your Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams entry
-Choose Properties
-Go to the Language tab
-Select your desired language (you can choose between English; German; French; Italian; Spanish; Russian: Japanese)
-Start the game
