Renegade Kid Announces Xeodrifter For Nintendo 3DS

Xeodrifter

Renegade Kid has unveiled its next project, Xeodrifter, for the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. The newly-announced game is a Metroidvania title that will offer a “bit-sized experience” to players. In a new development diary, the Mutant Mudds studio reassured fans that it hasn’t canned Treasurenauts, which is scheduled to launch after Xeodrifter makes its debut.

Before I get into the details our new game, I feel as though I should mention that Treasurenauts is still going to happen. I am really excited about Treasurenauts, and look forward to returning to it. I feel that I should also mention that we are not actively working on Cult County or the Razor game that we announced. Due to publisher issues outside of our control, it looks like the Razor game is dead for us. The good news is that we’re working on fewer games, which is always a good thing, right!?

I am a huge fan of Super Metroid, Metroid Zero Mission, and Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, and have always wanted to develop a game in that sub-genre. The day finally came where the desire to develop it got too strong and I just had to act on it. Xeodrifter was born. It is completely separate from Moon Chronicles, and related in no way at all. Xeodrifter is a separate character and story. And don’t worry; we will get back to Treasurenauts once Xeodrifter is completed.

Xeodrifter is the story of an interstellar drifter traveling the stars on a mission of exploration. In this particular installment of the story, we join our nomad as he embarks on the exploration of small cluster of four planets in the omega sector, after a collision with a rogue asteroid damages his warp drive. A scan of the neighboring planets reveals a number of energy signatures on the planets that may provide the special material needed to fix his warp drive and get back to cruising through the cosmos.

    1. ARTPOP + this game = I have no fucking idea, so just because I want to, I will recommend people to go buy the new PERTURBATOR album on iTunes instead.

      Also this game sounds interesting. I like that this studio is developing for 3DS first, the best platform around.

  1. This man takes on way too many projects at once to leave them unfinished after a while. I wish he would just focus on one or two projects at a time and complete more games.

    1. And sticks with his first choice of platform instead of changing it al the time…

  2. This sounds like fun!
    And I’m glad he isn’t spreading his team so thin over so many projects now.
    Maybe he’ll get back to Razor in the future, but for now I’m glad he’s got a focus.

  3. Oh good, another 8-bit 2D indie platformer, because we don’t have enough of those already. The title made it sound to me like an F-Zero clone, which would have been much cooler.

  4. What about the remainder of moon chronicles? Remember that SHORT game you charged us $9 for? Where are the other chapters and how much?

    I can’t say I’m a fan right now.

  5. “I am a huge fan of Super Metroid, Metroid Zero Mission, and Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, and have always wanted to develop a game in that sub-genre.”

    Welp. If it turn out to be at least decent, I’m sold. But yeah, too many projects at once, RK.
