Giana Sisters: Dream Runners is a new multiplayer racer for up to 4 players coming from Black Forest Games. The game is coming to PC via Steam, PS4 via PSN and Xbox One via Xbox Live Marketplace in early summer 2015.

The game pays tribute to titles like Micro Machines or SpeedRunners, as up to 4 players compete in local couch-multiplayer or in online matches, trying to get first place and leave everyone else is left in the dust. Use special abilities and a wide range of power-ups across the game’s nine different maps. Avoid obstacles and try not to get hit by the stunning, slowing, stopping or repelling effects.

A total of five characters will be available to use and run across the game’s nine maps. At first, you will only have 4 incarnations of Giana herself. But the more you play, the more characters will be available. You can unlock a Ninja, an Owl, the Knight or a Robot; and to stay absolutely fair, each character will have the same set of skills available:

  • Dash lets your hero hurry forward like an arrow
  • Twirling makes you fly for a little distance
  • Crouching helps you avoid obstacles by sliding underneath them
  • The Gem Boost makes your hero insanely fast for a short duration, but consumes all collected Gems
