Mutant Mudds, a stylish retro platformer from Renegade Kid, is one of the top titles on the 3DS eShop. It's got plenty of content for those with the skills and patience, but some of you may know that the PC version has an extra 20 'Grannie' levels, which are particularly challenging stages that require the OAP to use multiple power-ups at once. Well, those levels are coming to the eShop as a free update.
The news was dropped rather casually into a blog post by Jools Watsham, the man behind the game, who was emphasising the need to get the title approved for the Steam distribution service on PC. Watsham explains that Steam can be a major source of revenue, and that he wants the PC version of Mutant Mudds to succeed so that he can direct his attention to games for the 3DS and Wii U eShop. The fact that Renegade Kid is now approved as a Wii U developer was also confirmed in the blog post.
Porting Mutant Mudds to the PC, and selling it on Steam, has the potential of bringing some much needed funds into Renegade Kid, which will go straight into the development of new games. As we’re being perfectly – and frankly – honest here; I would like to put the majority of our future development efforts into the 3DS eShop and Wii U eShop titles (we’re authorized Wii U developers now btw – excite!).
It's great news that extra content will eventually arrive for Mutant Mudds on eShop for free, similar to WayForward's Mighty Switch Force, and that Renegade Kid is so committed to digital games on both 3DS and Wii U. If you want to give Mutant Mudds a thumbs up to support its quest for Steam approval, just follow this link.
So, just how excited are you about extra Mutant Mudds levels, and the prospect of Renegade Kid developing for Wii U?
