Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham has posted on his official blog that owners of Mutant Mudds for Nintendo 3DS should be on the lookout for a free update sometime in 2014. Watsham also stated that progress on Treasurenauts is going very well and they’re aiming for a Q1 2014 release. There should be more Cult Country for Nintendo 3DS survival horror news coming in 2014. Watsham says that development of Treasurenauts has put Mutant Mudds 2 on hold for a bit. However, he said that they have two new games in the works. One of them is a 3DS title that will be announced in January 2014, and released early-mid 2014. The other game will be announced a little later down the road.
Earlier this year, Mutant Mudds developer Renegade Kid announced their new game Treasurenauts for the 3DS. The company’s co-founder Jools Watsham opened up an informal question and answer session on Twitter yesterday, and expressed that he would like to bring Treasurenauts to the Wii U. The 2D action platformer game – which features a varied band of adventurers travelling the world for glorious treasure – is still on target for a late 2013 release, but for those of you looking for a demo, you’ll be sorely disappointed as Watsham doesn’t intend to release one prior to the game’s launch.
During the impromptu Twitter question session, Watsham also revealed that the trailer for Treasurenauts would be arriving soon, inspired by Metroid, Spelunky and Mario. Pricing for the game is set to be the same as Mutant Mudds – $8.99. You can check out his tweets below:
“@ahmadchannel2 We would like to bring it to other platforms, such as Wii U, PS Vita, etc.”
“@nikatapi Yes, we aim to support Download Play. No plans for a demo tho.”
“@WindsorNEH We’ll definitely have trailers and 3D screens pretty soon.”
The Wii U version of Mutant Mudds, titled Mutant Mudds Deluxe, supports a number of control options. On the Wii U, players be able to control the game’s main protagonist, Max, with one of six methods: Wii U GamePad, Wii U Pro Controller Wii Remote, Wii Remote Plus, Nunchuk combination and Wii Classic Controller.
Mutant Mudds developer Renegade Kid has revealed via Twitter that Mutant Mudds Deluxe will cost $9.99. For comparison’s sake, the original version of the game is priced at $8.99 in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. Mutant Mudds Deluxe launches on June 13th in the Nintendo eShop for Wii U.
The bugs have been squashed and the errors fixed, and now it’s finally time to officially unveil a release date for Mutant Mudds Deluxe. Renegade Kid co-founder and developer for Mutant Mudds, took to Twitter earlier today and announced the title was ready and raring to go for a June 13 launch on the Wii U for North America.

Watsham assures European fans, though, that a release date is still in the works, and that it shouldn’t be too far away. Meanwhile, you can check out the brand new trailer above to see what all the 12-bit fuss is about.
The first details of Renegade Kid’s latest game Treasurenauts has finally arrived, and it’s coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Created by Mutant Mudds developer Renegade Kid, Treasurenauts is a title featuring a varied band of heroes, adventurers and misfits, where your health is tied to what in-game wealth you own.
So far, Renegade Kid has been scarce about the details, but co-founder Jools Watsham told Nintendo Force Magazine in an exclusive interview a few of the details. Treasurenauts will settle in 16-bit form with a 2D art style similar to Mutant Mudds, where the world map acts as a treasure map, paying homage to Super Mario World. It will also support local multiplayer and download play, and will have multiple endings depending on how much treasure you own. The title is aiming for a Q4 release, and below you can see the round-up of the extra details.
- At least 8 unique characters, of which some need to be unlocked.
- Two tiers to the character selection process; Tier 1: only cosmetic; no effect on gameplay, and tier 2: weapon type; choose from sword, firearm, and bomb.
- Weapons have different strengths and weaknesses over other weapons
- Sometimes you may not be able to advance past the first screen of the new level since a pathway is out of your reach or is blocked by an obstacle that can’t be tackled at that time.
- New ability power-ups or a second teammate may come into play in these situations, for example: stand on a friends’ head to reach a high platform.
- Each player can be equipped with a different weapon type.
- Some areas have dual pressure pads that must be triggered together, leading to a special door with a lot of treasure, a completely separate secret pathway, etc.
- Don’t have to stay together with your friend in the level, plus can send a special voodoo summon to your teammate, allowing them to warp to you instantly.
- Bosses included – defeat them to earn power-up abilities such as the Double Jump ability.
- If hit by an enemy, some of your treasure will be lost.
Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham has announced on Twitter that Mutant Mudds Deluxe could very well be headed for a June release on the Wii U. Always looking to keep his fans in the loop when it comes to development, Watsham revealed over Twitter that the platformer game had been submitted to Nintendo of America, not long after he had spruced up and polished the title’s final touches. He said:
“Mutant Mudds Deluxe has been submitted to NOA! We always try to make it as bug-free as possible, but it could come back. Fingers crossed. :)
“A June release is looking good! :)”
But he hasn’t abandoned his Mutant Mudds fans in Europe, as he added:
“News of Mudds Deluxe submission to Europe to come soon. Sorry for the delay.”
After Mutant Mudds Deluxe was delayed until the second quarter of this year, it finally appears as if the title will hit the Wii U eShop soon. Jools Watsham, co-founder of game developer Renegade Kid, has posted on Twitter saying that the game is in its final stages of development. He said:
We’re in the final stretch of Mutant Mudds Deluxe for Wii U. Polishing it up now. Hoping to submit to NOA this week! Fingers crossed. :)
Renegade Kid, the developers behind Mutant Mudds and Dementium: The Ward, have lifted the lid on their latest project, Cult Country. The game is said to be an atmospheric horror themed first person shooter for the Nintendo 3DS. The footage that was shown during PAX East really shows off the atmospherics, rather than actual gameplay. Still, it’s worth a look.
Thanks to those that sent this in.
Renegade Kid, the developers behind Mutant Mudds and racing game ATV Wild Ride, have announced that their Nintendo 3DS first person shooter is titled Cult Country. Details on the game are fairly scarce, but it seems to involve a horror theme. The game will be compatible with the Nintendo 3DS Circle Pad Pro.
Renegade Kid has confirmed that its next game is called Treasurenauts – not to be confused with 5th Cell’s Scribblenauts. The developer, which created platformer Mutant Mudds and racing game ATV Wild Ride for the Nintendo 3DS, plans to formally announce the title soon. So far, we don’t know which platform(s) Treasurenauts will release on, but perhaps it will come to the Nintendo 3DS or Wii U. In addition to Treasurenauts, Renegade Kid is currently working on other games for Nintendo platforms - Mutant Mudds Deluxe and Mutant Mudds 2, both of which will launch in the Nintendo eShop.
