'Damsel' (ALL) Comes To PS4 This Week - Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 28, 2020 @ 2:28 p.m. PDT

Damsel is a challenging, arcade platformer with a kick-ass female lead facing off against an army of irresponsible corporate vampires.

Damsel is set in a dark cartoon universe where vampires and humans live in a fairly unstable co-existence. The vampires in the game all work for the multinational company which manufactures the drink Red Mist, the number one selling vampire drink on the planet. Red Mist is a blood analogue that satiates the vampire thirst without a need for human donors.

Prompted by a tip-off that the makers of Red Mist may have a “secret menu” containing drinks with real human blood destined for the highest bidders, Damsel, an agent for the Department of Sanguinarian Affairs (DSA) is called in to investigate, and if required, put a stop to any illegal activity.

Aided by her handler and friend, Swan, Damsel uncovers a lot more than just the packaging of some human blood. By the end of her adventure she will have caused plenty of distress for the makers of Red Mist and the vampire elite that demands it’s manufacture.

Armed with her UV Shotgun, Agent Damsel must ensure that the vampire world is kept in line after reports they are trying to bring back a classic ingredient, human blood, harvested from unsuspecting victims all around the globe.

While you can play slowly (most of the time), Damsel is best experienced fast, keeping those combos alive and getting the big points with speed, accuracy, quick thinking, and acrobatic prowess. The leaderboards will be competitive, but the satisfaction of reaching the top will be worth it.

Damsel will be dashing onto PS4 on 1st October 2020 – Just in time for Halloween!

Damsel is comprised of 75 missions set across 15 stunning environments. Each mission is designed by hand to challenge in a number of ways; testing your speed, accuracy and memory while rescuing hostages, diffusing bombs, destroying selected environmental targets and taking out the enemy in stylish ways that all contribute to getting that enviable high score.

Key Features

  • Super fast, frantic gameplay with that "just one more go!" feel.
  • Quick, nimble platforming in over a dozen environments.
  • Use your enemies and environment to your advantage. Let them take each other out, but don't let their stray bullets hit a hostage!
  • Rack up massive scores and hit the top of the leaderboards by completing bonus challenges and performing tricky moves.
  • Play through the game in either campaign mode, where you can hone your skills, or arcade mode - a classic challenge that sorts the women from the girls.
  • Chill Out Time - Chillout mode lets you take the edge off and enjoy the game without worrying about pesky things like dying.
  • Competitive Arcade Leaderboards - Master your abilities by perfecting your runs and become the top agent.
  • Extra challenge modes - For the discerning slayer, take the difficulty up a notch! 
  • Pumping Synth Sountrack - Gothic grooves to slay to!

Currently available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC (Steam), Damsel  will be available for PS4 on October 1, 2020.
