Damsel Update 1.0.3

Greetings Agents!

We've released an update for Damsel.

This update mostly contains behind the scenes work for expanding Damsel to multiple platforms, and we're excited to announce that the game is now available for both Linux and macOS. If you do experience issues on these new platforms, let is know and we'll take a look!

We've also made some changes that should make the game more accessible for some of our players. We've added some tweaks to the bomb defusal minigame which include marking the bad wires and rumbling the controller on the good wires. We hope these changes will help out those with certain types of colour blindness.

We've also added an option to the game that swaps out the default font with OpenDyslexic. We hope that this helps some of our players read the comic panels a little easier, though we understand it's not a fix-all for everyone. If there's a particular change or option you think we can make to enhance or enable your experience, let us know and we'll see what we can do.

Here's the full list of changes to the game.

  • Linux build live.
  • macOS build live.

  • Added OpenDyslexic font.
  • Timer disabled when chillout mode is active.
  • Visual updates to lasers.
  • Controller rumble added to bomb hack minigame.
  • Visual tweaks added to bomb hack minigame, to aid colourblind players.
  • Font and language fixes.
  • Shader fixes for certain hardware configs.

See you on the leaderboards!

Damsel Update - 1.0.1.309

Greetings Agents!

We've released an update for Damsel.

This update addressess some balance issues that we think will make your experience with the game a smoother, more entertaining one. The biggest change is the removal of most of the minigames completely. For some time now, these minigames have been a fairly divisive and we ultimately couldn't make them fit in a nice way with the rest of the gameplay. The core of Damsel is speed and precision, and these minigames weren't contributing to that.

The other big change is the increase in Damsel's starting health from one hitpoint to three. One hitpoint was causing frustration for many players and making combat more forgiving means fewer restarts and more time completing missions. Damsel is most enjoyable when you get into the flow of movement and combat and too many deaths took away that opportunity.

Here is the complete list of changes.
  • Remove all minigames except hostage rescue and bomb diffusal.
  • Lower amount of skull combo required for first super skull to one.
  • Increase starting health on all missions to three.
  • Lower damage of rockets to two hit points (previously three).
  • Address issue with some controllers not connecting correctly.
  • Hacking a server will now spawn two chellenge enemies.
  • Cracking a safe will now spawn three skulls.
  • Fix bug where best time is incorrectly recorded.
  • Fix bug where 0% accuracy is incorrectly reported on mission complete screen.
  • Increase reload speed of shotgun.
  • Fix bug where hostages could be shot when just off screen.
  • Fix bug in bad tutorial that may help better explain the concept of skull dashing.
  • Fix some bad translations that were showing an error.
As always we are open to hearing your thoughts on these and other issues as well. We believe that the game should be a living entity and we don't have any reservations making dramatic changes if we think they will give you a more enjoyable experience.

Reviews

“Those who like their games challenging, twitchy, and demanding of player improvement should consider joining Damsel on her wild ride into the night.”
7/10 – Destructoid

“These mechanics working so tightly together instills a flow state which is Damsel’s greatest accomplishment. However, in getting to a flow state, you must learn to manage side objectives on top of the vampire fights.”
8/10 – TechRaptor

“Damsel plays like old-school 2D shooters such as Mega Man or Commander Keen, blending fast-paced movement and twitch reflexes for the kind of second-by-second gameplay that only a 2D shooter can do.”
8/10 – WellPlayed

About This Game



Cause distress in this fast-paced, challenging action platformer! Speed through dozens of missions as Special Agent Damsel, the first and last line of defence against the seedy world of corporate vampires. Rescue hostages, disarm bombs, hack servers and dispatch the undead with precision, speed, and style. Balance frenetic action with split second choices, and pay attention, you never know where the next vamp will come from.

Uncover the secrets of the new recipe and stop the corporation from achieving their ultimate plan, the total dominance of vampires on Earth!



Use Damsel’s powerful ultraviolet shotgun, quick reflexes, devastating melee, and lightning fast dash to string together stylish attacks. Tight and responsive controls let you move around each arena while avoiding the deadly hazards fiendishly placed to stop you in your tracks.
