BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA – [5th October]: Damsel, the vampire slaying arcade game from Screwtape Studios, will officially launch via Steam® on 19th October 2018. It will be available with a special introductory discount of 25% off the regular price. Afterwards Damsel will be available for the regular price of $19.99 USD / €16.79 / £15.49, respectively.

Cause distress in Damsel, a challenging, fast-paced, arcade platformer. Experience a dark cartoon world come to life as frenetic action gameplay meets comic book visuals and storytelling. Dash through beautiful arenas vanquishing vampires, rescuing hostages, disarming bombs, hacking servers and much more. 

The game will launch with the first two episodes of Damsel’s adventure, including 50 action packed missions and a comic book story that sees Special Agent Damsel investigate the Red Mist Beverage Corporation. The word on the street is that Red Mist is creating a “secret menu” drink containing real human blood. Spoiler: They are! 

By stringing together perfectly timed attacks and super stylish movement, players can achieve that ultimate high score. Completing side objectives will put that score into overdrive and shoot them to the top of the leaderboards!

“We’ve been creating Damsel for nearly four years, it has been wonderful to see the game evolve with new ideas and refining the game’s identity“ said Megan Summers, Producer and Quality Assurance Lead, Screwtape Studios. “Players have been enjoying Damsel during the Early Access process so we are super excited to finally be releasing it” 

A Unite Melbourne and PAX Rising official selection finalist, Damsel will be available to play on PC, with Linux and Mac support coming shortly afterwards. Damsel is expected to be available on console in the upcoming months.
