Planetary Body Spotted and Named by Renegade Kid

Developer wants to bring a conversion of an existing game to the 3DS
Another year, another cycle for our dear old planet Earth, and, in true planetary fashion, co-founder of Renegade Kid Jools Watsham has revealed that a 3DS game is in the works. It's possible as well that for fans of Moon, the title might seem quite familiar indeed.
Speaking on his personal blog, Watsham states that the studio is close to signing a deal with a publisher, though he does not reveal who that publisher is. With past Renegade Kid releases from SouthPeak Games and Gamebridge, the latter seems to be the more likely out of the two since it published the aforementioned first-person shooter, but a deal with a new company might also be the case. No details on the tentatively-titled Planet have been announced, but it will be "a conversion" of an existing game:
Right now, we’re in heavy get-new-projects mode. There is one 3DS title that we’re in talks about with a publisher. It is a really cool game. It would be a conversion of an existing title, which we would bring to the 3DS. Let’s call it code-named “Planet”. In theory, we’re very close to signing this deal with the publisher. But, anything can happen in the world of business, so all we can do is hope everything stays its course and we sign it soon.
The developer doesn't make a habit of producing half-baked visuals in its range of titles, so it's good to know that Renegade Kid will likely continue to push the capabilities of the hardware that's in front of it and come up with something as compelling as it is visually stimulating.
