Jools Watsham of Renegade Kid has confirmed that ATV Wild Ride will cost $7.99 when it’s released on the eShop, most likely during March. Unfortunately, there won’t be a demo for the game, since it takes “a lot of extra time and resources” to make one.
Jools Watsham has confirmed that the first-person shooter that Renegade Kid is single-player only. There will not be a multiplayer component. And as expected, we’ll find out more details in March, during PAX East.
Jools Watsham of Renegade Kid has confirmed that they’re working on a first-person shooter for the 3DS that’s set to be released via the eShop. There’s no other details for the moment, but we might end up with some details at PAX East 2013.
Jools Watsham has confirmed that Renegade Kid will “have some new 3DS and Wii U goodness to reveal at PAX East in March”. Based on their work with Mutant Mudds, I’d say it’s worth anticipating the news.
Jools Watsham of Renegade Kid — the developers of Mutant Mudds — has shared his thoughts about the (potential) rise of piracy on the 3DS. Unfortunately, it does seem like an inevitability that piracy will become rampant, and this is what Watsham fears:
If piracy gets bad on the 3DS, we will have no choice but to stop supporting the platform with new games. Some say that piracy leads to more game sales, claiming that it enables players to try before they buy. Bullshit. The percentage of people who will spend money on a game that they already got for free is surely very small – especially with so many “free” games already in the market. The line between what should/should not be free is getting very blurry.

Jools Watsham has talked about the possibility of Mutant Mudds on the 3DS receiving an update with twenty extra levels. There’s always been a sense of uncertainy associated with his statements though. Luckily, that is no longer the case. Here’s a direct quote from a recent blog post:
You might be asking yourself, “Why should I vote for Mudds on Steam?” when you may already have Mutant Mudds on your 3DS, or you’re waiting for the 20 new Grannie levels to land on the eShop (which is totally going to happen btw, as a free update). You may also be thinking to yourself, “Erp, I don’t want to play Mutant Mudds on Steam or even the PC for that matter!”
The fact that the update is free makes it all the more sweet.
A while back, Jools Watsham of Renegade Kid mentioned that the bonus content included in the PC version of Mutant Mudds could come to the 3DS version. This is still on the cards, but he’s explained that:
…the reality is that it takes time to add the levels to the 3DS version and it requires approval from Nintendo. I don’t expect Nintendo to have a problem with us adding the levels to the existing game (they allowed Wayforward with Mighty Switch Force), but I cannot say for certain that they will simply say yes, because I am not Nintendo. And besides, once we have added the new content to the 3DS version, we will have to resubmit the game to the ESRB and through Nintendo’s approval process, which just takes time.
It’s a shame the process is so complicated. The (relative) ease of submitting content for release on the iTunes App Store is something Nintendo should from.
