Damsel is a single-player, fast paced, arcade-platformer game, framed in a 'Dark Disney' aesthetic with a pumping synth soundtrack. The player assumes the role of Damsel, and mysterious agent charged with the goal of saving the world from the growing vampire hordes. Players use Damsel's great agility and skills, along with her UV shotgun to clear each mission and uncover a conspiracy that will lead them around the world.

The player will discover new locations and missions as they progress through the story; as well as unlocking new abilities and upgrading current ones. Every mission has a number of side challenges to keep the player engaged, many of which are against the clock – the player must make the hard choice of going for more points, or risk losing it all by not beating the timer.

Developed in Brisbane, Australia, Damsel is the debut PC / Console title by Screwtape Studios and our brand new company Damsel Productions LLC in the US. Screwtape aims to give players a deep experience that goes beyond the normal trappings of an indie platformer. Incredibly aware of the culture that games and players find themselves in at the moment, Screwtape hopes to add to the conversation using the language they speak most eloquently, and show that no matter who you are, with the right preparation and tools, everyone has the ability to defeat their demons.

Crowdfunding announcement

News

postcard front preview

Screwtape Studios would like to officially announce the launch of our first Crowdfunding Campaign. We are working with a brand new Crowdfunding platform, Equity Arcade.

Crowdfunding has been a large component of raising funds for Indie games companies for years, with platforms like Kickstarter seeing teamsraise the money to start, complete and launch their games.

The major differences with our chosen Crowdfunding platform is that rather than beingdonation based, with rewards and 'prizes' for pledging at different levels, we are allowing people to invest in the profits of the game. The other major difference is we are not starting the production of Damsel, we are already 75% done. The funds raised will go to adding the last major components to the game, polishing and then marketing.

The minimum buy-inis only US$25 dollars and we have just under 3 months to raise the funds.
