Cause distress in this challenging fast-paced action platformer. Experience a dark cartoon world come to life as frenetic gameplay meets comic book visuals and storytelling. Dash through beautiful arenas vanquishing vampires, rescuing hostages, disarming bombs, hacking servers and much more.
Damsel is the first major game from Screwtape Studios. After releasing several mobile titles, the team decided that bigger screen gaming is where their hearts lie. We set out to create a platformer that would trigger our nostalgia for the classic PC action games we played growing up, and in the process have created something that is at once uniquely our own, but with a visible, comforting, DNA.
- Classic Arcade Vibe - Bite sized gameplay that’ll make you say “Just one more go” (although you said that a few tries ago…)
- Comic Book Campaign - Learn the secrets of Red Mist and put a stop to their evil plans.
- Competitive Arcade Leaderboards - Master your abilities by perfecting your runs and become the top agent.
- Chill Out Time - Chillout mode lets you take the edge off and enjoy the game without worrying about pesky things like dying.
- Extra challenge modes - For the discerning slayer, take the difficulty up a notch!
- Pumping Synth Soundtrack - Gothic grooves to slay to!
