No longer a viable market
Treasurenauts has been in development for what feels like forever, with both 3DS and Switch versions planned. However, 3DS owners might want to look away now because in the latest Atooi video update, Jools Watsham has revealed the development for that version has been cancelled. His reasoning is pretty sound;...
"It is a game that is truly special to me"
Remember Treasurenauts? Originally revealed way back in 2013, the game has been bubbling under at Atooi for years, and recently resurfaced via conformation that it would be coming to Switch. Atooi boss Jools Watsham has given us another update now, and while it's short on groundbreaking anno
"I think the indie audience has left the 3DS and moved onto Switch"
Chicken Wiggle by Atooi is one of the most notable 3DS eShop releases in recent times, a retro-styled platformer with level creation and sharing tools. Despite the positive reputation of the developers - largely the former Renegade Kid team behind Mutant Mudds - the game has sold...
"Much thought has gone into the pricing of Chicken Wiggle"
Atooi's Chicken Wiggle is nearing release, and Jools Watsham has now revealed what the game will cost once it hits the 3DS eShop. Watsham had previously stated that Chicken Wiggle would cost $10, but since then he's been adding loads more content to the game and feels that a price...
Value for money
The recent release of Super Mario Run on iOS has triggered quite a debate regarding how much people expect to pay for handheld video games. While the title is free to download, unlocking the entire game requires the kind of investment that mobile players perhaps aren't used to paying, and that has led to a rather poor conversion...
Sega remains silent on the matter, however
Sega has two new Sonic the Hedgehog titles in development at the moment, both of which are expected to arrive next year. Project Sonic 2017 is coming to NX as well as other platforms, while Sonic Mania - a more traditional take on Sega's mascot - sadly isn't coming to a Nintendo system. Given the 2D nature...
Poor sales of the SNES original to blame
Demon's Crest is one of the true underrated gems of the SNES library, yet it sold terribly upon its initial release back in 1994. In issue 100 of Nintendo Power it was even reported that the game had registered negative sales one week, as more people returned it for a refund than bought it. Thankfully, Capcom...
"It honestly didn't feel like work"
Arguably one of the most recognisable faces on the Nintendo indie scene, Jools Watsham is the founder of Renegade Kid, a Texas-based studio which has a long and proud history of producing high-quality content for Nintendo systems. Titles like Xeodrifter, Mutant Mudds, Moon and
Developer reports disappointing EU sales, though
Renegade Kid's Jools Watsham has confirmed that existing owners of the 3DS version of Xeodrifter will get the forthcoming Wii U eShop port for nothing. The game will be cross buy, which means that when you purchase one edition, you get the other entirely free of charge. Huzzah! According to...
eShop release coming next year, Dementium II and III could follow
Renegade Kid’s Jools Watsham revealed not so long ago that his company had regained control of the Dementium brand, and that he had plans for the series moving forward. Speaking to Twitch channel Vinesauce, Watsham has now delivered more details on the proposed revival of the...
Ward you believe it?
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...
Could this fan-translated release find its way to the eShop?
Retro Game Challenge is one of our favourite Nintendo DS titles here at Nintendo Life, and the fact that the sequel remained exclusive to Japan is something that still bugs us to this day. Recently, fans of the game have translated it into English, an event which has resulted in Renegade...
Sales of Wii U and 3DS editions beat Steam, PS Vita and PS3
Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham has divulged an interesting piece of sales data via his Twitter account — the Wii U and 3DS editions of Mutant Mudds are selling better than those on other systems. Watsham first revealed that the Wii U eShop version of the game has sold more than...
