How Tom Putzki ended up in the credits under Bitfield Team remains a mystery - he was never associated with Bitfield in any way.
Sadly, Armin Gessert, who programmed the original The Great Giana Sisters game on the C64 and acted as executive producer for Giana Sisters DS, died unexpectedly just a few months after the release of the game.
Giana Sisters DS won the German Game Developer Award 2009 in the category "Best Children's Game".
The title screen changes depending on which day or which time of the day you're playing the game. For example, during daytime, the title screen will have a sunny background, but when you choose to play Giana Sisters DS at evening, a dark title screen with a crescent-shaped moon will appear.
It has been reported that during the Easter holidays, there is a special title screen with Easter bunnies hopping all over the screen! It has still to be proven if an appropriate screen will appear during the Christmas holidays.
Executive producer was Armin Gessert, who programmed to original C64 version. The new soundtrack by Fabian Del Priore was inspired by the original score by Chris Hülsbeck.
