Contest: Cause vampiric distress with a copy of Damsel


Steam, Xbox One, and Switch

Enter our contest and win your own copy of Damsel for PC, Xbox One, or Switch!

There’s nothing I love more than a kickass female lead in a video game. Unfortunately, we don’t get nearly as many as we deserve. Give me more Lara Crofts, and fewer Nathan Drakes. More Bayonettas, less Dantes. More Joanna Darks, and absolutely no Duke Nukems. That dude straight up sucks.

Damsel is here to deliver on that badass lady lead. We’ve got some keys for PC, Xbox One, and Switch to give away so you can kick vampire ass all across your screen.

You were given eyes for a reason. Use them to read this:

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!


  • Classic Arcade Vibe – Bite sized gameplay that’ll make you say, “Just one more go” (although you said that a few tries ago…)
  • Comic Book Campaign – Learn the secrets of Red Mist and put a stop to their evil plans.
  • Competitive Arcade Leaderboards – Master your abilities by perfecting your runs and become the top agent.
  • Chill Out Time – Chillout mode lets you take the edge off and enjoy the game without worrying about pesky things like dying.
  • Extra challenge modes – For the discerning slayer, take the difficulty up a notch!
  • Pumping Synth Soundtrack – Gothic grooves to slay to!

This game doesn’t suck! LOL VAMPIRE JOKE GET IT?!

To enter to win your copy, comment below telling us which platform (and if Switch, which region) you’d like to win. Also, tell us your favorite female video game character! I’m a sucker for Tifa Lockhart. A huge sucker. A total fool for that woman, I am.

We have 5 Steam, 4 Xbox One, 2 Switch NA, and 2 Switch EU keys to give away. Winners will be drawn Wednesday, August 14. Don’t have a Dtoid account? Naughty. Sign up here to join the party.

Damsel is available now for PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
