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.

We hope you will share in the excitement that both Jools and Gregg feel for their new journeys. You can follow their progress on twitter: @AtooiLLC and @InfitizmoLLC.

 

I don't know how many at CS like and follow Renegade Kid and their games, but I figured I should relay this news.

I just think it kinda sucks cuz I remember them as the most ambitious devs who actually tried to make games look good on DS, namely with Dementium. That game was good, up until the point where I didn't know where to go and went back and forth between rooms that had enemies respawning after i killed them, yet the ammo would not respawn, leaving me with only a few rounds of ammo... And once I found the way to make progress, I encountered a flying demon head enemy that charged at me quickly as fuck, and ending my ass right there. Couldn't get past that point, and didn't wanna restart the game from the beginning, so I dropped it right there.
