Each with half the Renegade Kid games
As of today, Renegade Kid is no more. The Texas-based developer that’s known for games such as Xeodrifter, Mutant Mudds, and Dementium has ceased operations after nine years as a studio.
The news was revealed on the company’s site. “Renegade Kid has announced that its co-founders, Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove, have made the difficult decision to bring their 10-year partnership of developing games together as Renegade Kid LLC to an end,” the post begins. The dissolution seems to be amicable, as the two say that they’re going their separate ways “with their friendship and their respect for each other still very much intact.”
Out of this split will come a couple of new studios. Watsham has now founded Atooi, LLC, and Hargrove has founded Infinitizmo, LLC. The two will divy up Renegade Kid’s properties. Watsham will take the rights to all of its 2D titles (Mutant Mudds, Xeodrifter, Bomb Monkey, Treasurenauts, and Totes the Goat) while Hargrove gets all the 3D games (Dementium, Moon Chronicles, and ATV Wild Ride/ATV Renegades.
