Dementium: The Ward and its sequel Dementium II stand out as two of the most unusual games to appear on the family-friendly Nintendo DS, and earned a large following of fans thanks to their mature themes and use of horror. Renegade Kid founder Jools Watsham has always said that he'd like to return to the series, but was unable to due to an issue with the rights.

However, it would appear that this is all sorted out now, as Watsham has tweeted the following good news:

Of course, having the rights and making a game are two very different things, and Renegade Kid currently has a rather full work schedule, what with the episodic 3DS releases of Moon Chronicles and the ongoing development of Xeodrifter to consider. It is also working on the sequel to Mutant Mudds.

Still, it's good news without a shadow of a doubt — perhaps we'll see a Dementium successor on Nintendo hardware in the not-too-distant future?
