What is Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams?

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is a platform game developed by Black Forest Games for Windows. Maria is abducted to the Dream World, where a giant dragon holds her prisoner. It is now up to her sister, Giana, who has become a teenager in the time since the last entry in the series, to enter the Dream World and rescue her. Because she is in a stage of her life that is all about transformation, she has learned how to manipulate her dreams. She must use this newly developed ability to jump between dreams and transform herself into a "Cute" and "Punk" persona in order to deal with her inner conflict and fear while she searches for her sister.
