Mutant Mudds Invading Your PC Soon!


Mutant Mudds Invading Your PC Soon!

Austin, Texas – July 12, 2012 – Today, Renegade Kid announced that Mutant Mudds, the critically acclaimed 12-bit platformer, will soon be available through numerous digital distribution partners on PC (Windows).

In addition to the 40 challenging levels featured in the original Mutant Mudds, players who purchase this special ‘Grannie Edition’ on PC will be treated to 20 brand new levels!

Our hero, Max, may be just a 2D sprite, but he can leap into the third dimension by jetting between the background and the foreground playfields with his trusty jetpack in this unique dimensionally-woven experience.

Armed with a heavy-duty water cannon, Max has what he needs to vanquish his long-term nemesis: the Mutant Mudds. Max must blast and hover his way across the soiled landscape to seek out mysterious Water Sprites. Legend says collecting all of the mysterious Water Sprites will wash the filthy Mutant Mudds away for good!

“The PC release of Mutant Mudds is something very special to us,” said Jools Watsham, Owner and Director at Renegade Kid. “We have designed 20 new levels for those who have mastered the original Mutant Mudds. We hope players enjoy the new tier of gameplay these levels bring to the game.”


More Details Coming Soon!

  1. As a fan of the original, the new content makes it look like a must buy. Any word on those digital distribution partners yet?

  2. This is nice, but those extra levels should be paid DLC for the 3DS version. I know I'd rather play MM on my 3DS than on my PC.

    1. Yes PLEASE!

      I'd be happy to pay for these extra levels, but I want to be able to play them on my portable...

  3. Any word on if these levels will be somehow accessible to 3DS owner one day? I don't play on my computer. :/

    The game is awesome though. I really like it. :)

  5. I tried the demo on the 3DS and was very pleasantly surprised. Actually liked the game much more than I thought. Gotta admit though, the price tag (EU) was the only thing keeping me from buying it right after. Now a friend lent me Mario and Rhythm Thief and Steam Sales are also on and with the announcement of a PC version coming with extra content, I just don't see me buying it. Even though I would much prefer to play it on my 3DS, since the 3D adds somuch fidelity to games in my opinion.

    Mostly I'm so very curious how you will price it on the PC. Considering you went with a rather "high" pricetag on the eshop, it will be interesting to see how a much more competitive market on the PC/Steam will influence your pricing decision. Also I'd love to hear you release some kind of sales information if you could, if only a comment like "Steam sold more copies on day 1 than 3DS lifetime so far" or "Even with half the price we made more money on Steam than on the eshop". Would surprise me if it was anything else honestly.

    Still, I hope you'll be selling a ton of this great game and I'll decide if I buy on PC or eshop once you tell us about the DLC. IF you don't give it to 3DS buyers for free or really cheap or just put the Granny edition on the eshop as standard from then on, I might not be able to buy the game on eshop out of principle. Shame, but I try to be a more thoughtful consumer and with so much content to enjoy everywhere, it's not as hard these days.

    P.S.: Just like Mighty Switch Force having an amazing deal on the US eshop, while we Europeans only got a 20% off. Sure it might be worth it, but with the other stuff I have, I just don't buy it on impulse as I would for that "amazing deal" price.

  8. Jools, my man, the time is NOW. Playstation just instituted Playstation Mobile. A program that is supremely easy to get signed onto PLUS you just have to program the game one time and it will be released onto EVERY Playstation certified handheld device from the Vita to mobile phones. You've already figured out how to port Mudds to PC and now you can just port the PC version over to PS, since these devices have buttons and d-pads, unlike Iphones. When I said the time is now, I meant it's now time for Renegade Kid to take the WORLD by storm

  9. Jools, I've been in contact with Hugo Smits of Goodbye Galaxy games, and he said that Sony gave him a "contract" & "budget" to develop his yet unannounced PS Mobile game. I don't know exactly how PS Mobile is set up, but from that it sure sounds like Sony will pay YOU to bring your epic retro goodness to PS Mobile. PLEASE Jools, a request from one of your biggest fanboys. I've been with you from the very 1st time I ever laid eyes on Dementium

  10. P.S. Goodbye Galaxy was also formerly a DS-exclusive dev company. So there must be somethin pretty legit about PS Mobile
