PC gamers who own Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (or the currently PC-exclusive stand-alone add-on, Rise of the Owlverlord), have the opportunity to scare up some additional fun with a free, Halloween-inspired level. Unfortunately, all console versions will be left in the dark.

Adrian Goersch, Managing Director of Black Forest Games, explained in a press release why consoles were being excluded and offered some promise for the future:

Knowing that the question will be raised: Since there is an extensive submission process required for consoles, we are currently not working on bringing the DLC to PSN, XBLA or WiiU. For all those playing Giana on console: there are several things planned for 2014.

It may be that the timing would have brought the level out onto consoles after the holiday, making it somewhat of a moot point, or it just would require too much time or resources than the studio is able or willing to spend at this point. Either way, it sounds like consoles, including the Wii U, are far from entirely forgotten.

Does missing out on a DLC level put a wormy apple in your bobbing bin, or are you content with the knowledge of more coming on the horizon? Let us know below.
