Damsel, the vampire slaying arcade game from Screwtape Studios, has dashed onto Nintendo Switch™ and Xbox One.
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, and much more. The game consists of three episodes of Damsel’s adventure totalling 75 action packed missions and a comic book story that sees Special Agent Damsel investigate the vampire-owned 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!
