Renegade Kid is currently developing a 2D platformer for the 3DS called Treasurenauts, which features customisable characters and local multiplayer.

The studio behind Mutant Mudds has said it will emerge in the fourth quarter of 2013 and it looks as though that will be the case as co-founder Jools Watsham has taken to Twitter to reveal he hopes to see it nestled in the eShop in December.

It is now hard at work creating a demo for IndieCade, which is being held between the 3rd and 6th October in Los Angeles, so it's likely we'll be hearing more about this one soon. For those wondering, Watsham has confirmed Treasurenauts picked up an ESRB rating of E10+ for its fantasy violence. He has previously stated it could be ported to other systems, including Wii U, but that would surely be a while off yet, if it did happen.
