Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham announced that the studio's Nintendo 3DS platformer Treasurenauts
will miss its previously announced December release date
, and is now set to launch in the eShop in the first quarter of next year
"Don't worry, there's nothing wrong," Watsham assures. "The game means a lot to us, and we want to do it right. We need more time to make it the game we want it to be. [...] Sorry for the delay, but as an independent developer we rely on the success and revenue generated from each of our self-published games. More time = better game = better sales (hopefully)."
Watsham notes that two new Renegade Kid-developed projects will be announced next year, including an unnamed 3DS game set for release in mid-2014. These two games will be developed alongside the studio's current projects, which include the survival horror game Cult County
and a sequel to its plane-shifting platformer Mutant Mudds
