Rescue yourself in 2017


In this arcade platformer, play as agent Damsel as she races across the world keeping humanity safe from the forces of evil. Complete dozens of missions, rescue hostages, gather intel, and eliminate the vampire hordes with an ever expanding arsenal of upgradable weapons and equipment.
Immerse yourself in a beautifully detailed cartoon world, spanning locations across the globe, from the rooftops of New York City to the slums of urban China. With the help of Swan, Damsels friend and handler, unravel a massive conspiracy that goes up to the higher echelons of a corporation founded by the vampire which has one goal; the systematic control and utilisation of the human population for the advancement of vampires everywhere.


Developed in Brisbane, Australia, Damsel is the debut PC / Console title by Screwtape Studios. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When will the game be released?

A: When it’s done and feels good, and we’re aiming for that to be by the first half of 2017.

Q: What’s an “Arcade Platformer” anyway?
A: Rather than linear levels you complete in order, Damsel takes place in a range of environments (arenas) that are filled with different objectives. You’ll come back to an environment multiple times and see things in a different way. Missions may only last a few minutes, but there’s lots of them, and you’ll want/have to replay many to unlock all of the challenges and bonuses that go with them.

Q: Why is it called Damsel? I just want to play a game, I’m not interested in politics.
A: Calm down, we’re not here to be preachy. We think it’s a cool, memorable, name and we think we’ve created a cool, memorable character. If people can relate to her and her story, that’s awesome! If not, that’s fine too. We just want people to know that not all damsels have to be in distress. Some damsels can cause it.
