Screwtape Studios has unleashed more content for Damsel, their vampire slaying arcade title, with Episode 3: Executive Incentives.
Damsel after being released last October, the Episode 3 update is the first free massive update for Windows users on the Steam platform. In the update the investigation into vampire-owned Red Mist Beverage Corporation escalates as Agent Damsel visits larger and more challenging locations. Illegal blood farms and intricate halls and basements of ancient castles are examples of the new areas.
Episode 3’s content includes 25 new missions across 5 new arenas. These can be played through the campaign or unlocked for arcade mode. The story continues to unwrap through comic panels in between missions bringing the dark cartoon world of Damsel to life.
Several quality of life changes along with bug fixes are included in the update. Improvements have been made to the game’s UI and menus giving Damsel a more comic vibe. The 3 hot system has been replaced with a more traditional single shot with cool down system making the game easier to understand with more consistent gameplay.
The update may cause some players to lose their game progression. Screwtape Studios acknowledges that losing save progress does suck, but is an unfortunate side effect of the massive update that now includes multiple save slots and ask players to forgive the inconvenience. With multiple save slots speedrunners can rejoice.
A complete list of changes and bug fixes can be found on the Damsel Steam Community page.
Damsel is available now on Steam regularly price at $16.99 USD. The Steam Summer Sale is currently underway and Damsel is discounted down by 40% until July 9, 2019 at a price of $10.19 USD.
