Giana's Return: beta release soon! Posted by Darksaviour69 @ 15:01
After a vote in the forums, this news has been posted:

We've good, and we've bad news. First the bad ones. The poll has been heavily manipulated by some "extremly funny" guys. One of them is even posing about his actions on the GP32x Boards. Due to this reason we can't exactly say which platform get's the game first, BUT obviously, now the good news, many people are heavily intersted in this piece of work. Specially GP32 and Dreamcast users. We decided yesterday evening to release both, the GP32 and Dreamcast, betaversion soon. The betaversion will NOT have support for the GP32<->DC Link Cable yet, has no storyline AND will not contain the hidden Mini-Olympics games. Once the betaversion is out we hope to recieve lot's of bugreports so we can fix the bugs and pull out the -FINAL- version.
