Renegade Kid developed some of the most successful downloadable Nintendo games of the last generation. Games like Mutant Mudds and Xeodrifter made the studio’s name among Nintendo fans. However, after a decade of game development, the company is closing its doors. Co-founders Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove have decided to split the assets between their two separate game studios. While it is sad the company is closing, it is nice that both of its founders can continue to make games. The company released a final press release detailing the closure.
Renegade Kid has announced that its co-founders, Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove, have made the difficult decision to bring their 10-year partnership of developing games together as Renegade Kid LLC to an end.
With their friendship and respect for each other still very much intact, Watsham and Hargrove will continue developing videogames under the names of their new companies: Atooi and Infitizmo.
The award-winning library of Intellectual Properties that Renegade Kid has created over the past decade will be finding new homes. All of Renegade Kid’s “2D” games, including the Mutant Mudds series and Treasurenauts, will become the property of Atooi. All of Renegade Kid’s “3D” games, including the Dementium series and Moon Chronicles, will become the property of Infitizmo.
