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.

Damsel Kickstarter Live!

News

After months of preparation and design tweaking, Damsel is now live on Kickstarter. Here's the pitch:

The Damsel team have worked tirelessly to get the game to a point where we think players will love and appreciated the attention we've put into creating a fun gameplay loop. The game has tight controls and super smooth platforming. For a score attack game that relies on combos and tricks, it was vitally important that moving the character be intuitive, as when you're in the thick of it, thinking about buttons is a death sentence.

Here's a little bit of gameplay from the Kickstarter demo:


Oh, and you can grab the demo and try the game for yourself by visiting the Kickstarter page here:

Soon we'll be starting an online high-score competition, so get those vampire bustin' fingers all warmed up!
