Sometimes, great things come from strange, lowly origins. The original 80's Great Giana Sisters back on the C64 & Amiga was rather infamous - it was exactly the sort of thing that draws irate headlines now; a shameless clone of Super Mario Bros with only the most superficial of cosmetic re-workings in order to avoid a lawsuit. Clearly not enough, as the game was on sale for all of about five minutes before Nintendo dropped the hammer on it. Despite this, it garnered a surprising number of fans, and there was more than enough scepticism to go round when Black Forest Games announced the kickstarter for Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, a modern update of the franchise. Surely this was just cashing in on poorly grounded nostalgia, right?
