Giana Sisters dev heads to Kickstarter for Ravensdale

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams developer Black Forest Games' Kickstarter for Ravensdale is up and running (and gunning). Announced in late May (or back in 2010 if you want to get technical), Ravensdale is a run-and-gun co-op shooter in a "garage fantasy" world, where orcs and knights meet the industrial era.

As of this writing, the game has 853 backers and has reached $24K of a $500k goal, with 29 days to go. No stretch goals have been announced, but the music will be provided by a medieval metal band called In Extremo.

This will be Black Forest Games' second title seeking Kickstarter funding – but, unlike some bigger studios – it's actually completed and shipped its first crowdfund project: the dreamy, bipolar (not insult, that's literal) platformer Giana Sisters. Ravensdale is shooting for a launch in the second quarter of 2014.
