To do:
There is more content here, which includes unused content from expansion packs.

Unused Graphics

A placeholder particle effect with "Dummy" labeled on it.

Partially used in the score screen after beating a level and right next to the death count. However, the left part where is Punk Giana laughing, is cut off. A duplicate of the image exists as hud_i6b.dds.

Unused Models

Heart Gem

Model Texture
GSTD-HeartGem.png GSTD-TexGemHeart.png

A Heart Gem, which is a 3D version of the heart health bar used in boss fights. The health bar was probably meant to be in 3D instead of 2D or being an early version of the Pink Star Gem.
Missing Model

A cubical model with "MISSING MODEL" labeled on it. Like it name implies, it is meant to be used when a model is missing.

Unused Sounds

Five identical sound files titled 053_collect.wav, 053_collect_bigblue.wav, 053_collect_blue.wav, 053_collect_red.wav, and 053_collect_yellow.wav. These would have been placeholders for the diamond collecting sound, from when the game was still called "Project Giana". It's also imply the diamond variants meant to have different sound variants too, the red diamond would have a cute tone and the yellow diamond would have a dark tone.


A different version of the sound effect of Cute Giana getting hurt.


A different version of Cute Giana giggling. it's unused is probably because it sounded too annoying unlike the others.

Called respectively 202_vo_cute_boss_01.wav, 202_vo_cute_boss_02.wav, 203_vo_punk_boss_01.wav, 203_vo_punk_boss_02.wav, and 203_vo_punk_boss_03.wav. They were probably meant to be used when Giana defeated a boss.

Giana and Maria giggling, named 218_vo_outro_giana.wav and 218_vo_outro_maria.wav respectively. They were meant to be used after Punk Giana saved Maria from Gurglewocky. It's also Maria's only voice clip.
