Renegade Kid Signs With Gamecock For Debut Title

New Nintendo DS-specialized development house Renegade Kid has announced today that it has signed up with Gamecock Media Group to publish the team’s debut title, Dementium: The Ward. Telling the horrifying tale of a man trapped in an abandoned hospital that is frozen in time, Dementium: The Ward is a survival-horror FPS that promises to push the DS hardware to its limits. In the game, players will combat deadly creatures and solve challenging puzzles in order to escape the mysterious hospital alive.

“Renegade Kid is looking to move above and beyond what most games are attempting on the DS, and with Gamecock we’ve found a publisher who is supportive, developer friendly, and willing to give us the freedom to create the game we want,” said Jools Watsham, Owner and Creative Director of Renegade Kid. “Dementium showcases what a powerful piece of hardware the DS is, while drawing in a mature crowd that’s looking for a title they can really sink their teeth into.”

“From the first meeting, Renegade Kid have proven themselves to be innovative, unafraid to push the ‘norms’ of gaming and incredibly talented – all of which we think are the key characteristics of a great developer,” said Harry Miller, Head of Development of Gamecock Media Group. “It’s great when you can sit down with a developer who shares the same vision of where games should be going in creating new and exciting titles to offer an alternative to the bland remakes and sequels flooding stores today.”

Dementium: The Ward is currently due out this November. Further info regarding the game and Renegade Kid can be found at www.renegadekid.com.
