Independent developer Renegade Kid is working on a new game for Nintendo 3DS. Jools Watsham of Renegade Kid announced this on Twitter earlier, stating the following.
As part of our healing process after the KS failure, we’re developing a new experimental 2D game for 3DS. It has pixels and stuff. No cults.
Nintendo’s handheld is the preferred platform of the company. It previously launched games like Mutant Mudds and Treasurenauts on the portable devices.
Last week, Renegade Kid failed to round up funds for Cult County, a horror game for PC and consoles with cel-shaded visuals. It required the quite large sum of $580,000 for the Kickstarter project and only managed to receive $46,736.
This could be attributed to a few things. For instance, the campaign lacked visible gameplay features, only spawning an esoteric clip days into the event.
Despite the vocal core community, support from others was lacking, resulting in 1492 backers in total. Cult County would have allowed the developer to continue its brand of suspenseful games, after launching the Dementium series.
Aside from the newly announced project, Renegade Kid is also working on a remake of one of its previous games, Moon on DS. Now called Moon Chronicles, the remake headed to Nintendo 3DS should be available sometime soon.
Moon Chronicles is one of the only first-person shooters for 3DS. At least, the developer can’t be faulted for thinking outside the box.
