Mastiff and Renegade Kid unveil Moon for the Nintendo DS

Publisher Mastiff and Dementium: The Ward developer Renegade Kid have finally pulled the covers off of the mysterious “Project M” that was announced last year. Entitled Moon, the sci-fi, action-adventure title for the Nintendo DS will once again use the impressive “Renegade Engine” used to power the 3D Dementium.

Moon is dark, twisted, heart pounding, frequently violent and always disturbing,” says Mastiff’s Bill Swartz.

In Moon, lunar researchers in 2058 find a sealed alien hatch which when opened, reveals a world of s**t. That’s a technical, scientific term, by the the way. No word on a release date as of yet, and no screens have been released, but the pretty logo you see above goes hand-in-hand with the press release that you can find after the jump.

Moon Announced for Nintendo DS™

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – March 14, 2008 – Mastiff, a worldwide publisher of videogames and Renegade Kid, developer of innovative interactive software, today announced the title codenamed “Project M” has been officially named Moon after the cold and barren hunk of rock orbiting earth.

Developed by Renegade Kid, Moon is a sci-fi, action-adventure title for Nintendo DS™. Moon places gamers on the cold lunar surface in the year 2058.  Researchers are shocked to find a sealed, alien hatch during construction of a new lunar base, but it’s a shock that soon pales in comparison to what they find beyond the hatch.

 “Moon is dark, twisted, heart pounding, frequently violent and always disturbing. Pretty much what you’d expect when you take madmen like Renegade Kid, jack their technology up to the next level, and turn them loose,” said Bill Swartz, Head Woof of Mastiff.

“Moon demonstrates the impressive power of NIntendo DS, while appealing to a crowd that’s looking for a first-person action-adventure title that delivers a menacing story and really puts your gaming skills to the test,” said Jools Watsham, Owner and Creative Director at Renegade Kid. “Building upon our achievements with Dementium: The Ward, Renegade Kid is utilizing its sophisticated 3D engine, dubbed the ‘Renegade Engine,’ to continue pushing the limits of Nintendo DS and focus on producing high quality content.”
