Treasurenauts pushed back to 2014, developer revealing new projects next year

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.
