I feel I might as well chip in with my compliments about this short but fun game.

Do here goes: well done matey!

It was fairly simple but nonetheless it did make mehave to put my thinking cap on at a few moments. It was reward to put my time in it. (how much more complimentary can one get?) BTW, the talkie-voices were well done as well.

Thanks for making it! I'm looking forward to the next game in the series, keep it up!

Just finished playing, and I loved it!

It made a major impression upon me, good stuff. I loved all the voices, but especially the stuff from Jesse Cox.

Thanks for the good half hour of awesome entertainment!

Also, the music was beautiful, and perfect.

More congratulations on this brilliant and effortlessly charming game. I don't usually like one/two- room games but this was well written and thought out. I think the epilogue was my favourite part, but all of the characters and voices were great.

Not sure how many games Damsel has in her, but I'll be downloading them all as they came out.

Awesome, I loved this game, thank you :)

Definitely my favourite short game so far. I found it very funny, the voice acting was great, nice puzzles and visuals, and very entertaining.

I look forward to more from you!

What a fun little game  ;D
The dialog was funny without being too over the top and the graphics were very clean.  I also really enjoyed the intro.  Very cute.  I'd love to see more Damsel Adventures in the future.

Thank you all so much for the compliments, we really appreciate them and we're glad you're all enjoying it so much. :)

And hooray for all the uber-dedicated movie theater nerds who sit through past the end of the credits!  ;D  I was wondering if people were alt+x-ing out before they finished and missing the epilogue.  I'm also curious if people are watching Princess Logo and Prince Splot at the SV Productions screen, or using the hint file (since it was pretty easy).  :)

Thanks everybody!

I stayed till the end, but I always do on video games, not so much movies.

I had a friend at work play it who doesn't play adventure games, and he really liked it, and commented on the the logo. Since playing your kickass game he has decided to work with me on a project as well.

I also had my wife play it, she really enjoyed it too.

I personally didn't use the hint file, the only place I got stuck was

Spoiler: ShowHide

On the hair part, I tried to cut the rope, but the knife kept bringing up the curtains instead. Took me a couple tries to hit the spot


Other than that the other puzzles were pretty easy, but they were exceptionally entertaining, and made sense. You rewarded the player well for overcoming the hurdles you set up.

I would love this if it became an episodic thing, although that spark of creativity you guys had with this may not endure.

Thanks again!

There are pebbles along the shore, sometimes smooth and nice.

This, I am confident to say, is a gem  ;)

Loved the satire

Please help.  I cannot download the game. I keep on getting an error message both from the download site and from the mirror site.  How do I get this download

Man, I don't understand why that keeps happening.  The links both work fine whenever I click them...does anyone know if Filefront's just backed up at certain times or something?  Sorry about that!

A shame I only found time for this recently. Lovely game, guys, and very, very good voice acting. This is a gem to treasure!

Excellent little game! Nice puzzles, great voice acting and good graphics. I'm looking forward to the next episodes :)

Rather odd but in a good way!  ;D

Very nice graphics, very funny voice-acting, good game overall.  When's Chapter 2 coming out?  ;)
 

Re: Damsel
« Reply #38 on: 08 Feb 2009, 12:44 »
Thanks for the compliments! :)  We're not really sure when Chapter 2 will be, but it's definitely coming.  We've been working hard on Quest to End All Quests right now, and as usual our brains are frazzled.  But I've already got some great plot ideas in my head, and the next chapter will be longer, and the puzzles not as extremely easy as they were this time. :)

I'm also going to keep my new promise to outdo Ponch in inserting gratuitously unclothed and oversexed women somewhere into my game. :)

Plus...I was going to keep this on the down-low, but it's just awesome...Al Lowe played Damsel!  I wrote him a letter a few weeks back thanking him for all his work with Sierra, and helping give me my lifelong love of adventure games.  He wrote right back, downloaded, and got stuck at the dragon hand in the window. :)  Really nice guy.  Just wanted to share that!

Haha, you are correct, that is pretty damn awesome!

Nice work!
