Early Giana Sisters 2 Concept Art

It’s not exactly a secret that we are also currently working on Giana Sisters 2. Being in the very early development stage that means a lot of concept art of different visual directions is going around. Below you can find a selection of the recent Giana concepts. Let us know what you think of them in the comments below.

 

Tiny Giana

Giana Sisters 2: Tiny Giana

The inspirations draw heavily on the Japanese chibi style. It shows a more puppet-like state for cute and punk Giana and it makes them appear in-over-their-heads in dream and nightmare.

 

Teenager Giana

Giana Sisters 2: Teenies-Voodoo-Arcade

Again adolescent, but with a starker contrast between cute and punk. The haircuts define both incarnations special ability (fiery dash vs. Twirl) and let cute Giana look more self-confident.

 

Teenager Giana 2

Giana Sisters 2: Teenies-Cool

Here we have a more adolescent Giana which deviates from the original design. The contrasting haircuts are inspired by Giana’s special abilities.

 

Punk Giana

Giana Sisters 2: Classic-Punk

In her punk incarnation, Giana is tough, rebellious and suspicious of everything. The artist combined influences from tribal, pirate and – of course – punk art.

 

Weak Giana

Giana Sisters 2: Classic-Lost

There is a third incarnation – weak Giana looks lost, trapped, and dreamy. The intention is to show that she is in deep trouble – to look like the victim of a nightmarish world, to be out of control and a prisoner of herself.

 

Cute Giana

Giana Sisters 2: Classic-Cute

In her cute incarnation, Giana displays self-confidence, but is still playful and shows seemingly innocent character traits. This style was influenced by legacy Giana style for one – and Alice in Wonderland for the other.

 

So now that you had a good look at the first selection of Giana concepts – some closer to what you’ve been used to, some taking clearly a new spin – let us know what you think and what you like. Just leave a comment for us below.

SECOND: We released a Giana Sisters Multiplayer Update… FOR FREE!

Ever wanted to play Giana Sisters with your friends? Well now you can. Just update your version on Steam to unlock the three multiplayer levels.

Note, if you get used to Giana’s default controls, you might want to check out Dream Rush controls attached. You will notice that things are slightly different. If you play with the keyboard, make sure you will check the buttons by clicking “SETTINGS” button in the initial Launcher.

And FINALLY: We made a thing together with our friends at Daedelic Entertainment, Deck13 Interactive, KingArt Games and Piranha Bytes. Up until now you enjoyed Let’s Play videos from a bunch of cool guys out there. Now you can watch us play our games, spiced with some developer commentary straight from the source. Our aim is to answer your questions about game development as to the point as possible and give you an insight in how we as game developers tick.

For now we will release new content every Tuesday and Thursday in turn for every participating studio. Over time we all want to grow our network and include other studios around Europe as well.
