Renegade Kid Disbands After Co-Founders Part Ways


Mutant Mudds developer Renegade Kid exists no more, after co-founders Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove shared that they have parted ways.

After 10 years their journey together has come to an end, with Watsham and Hargrove to each continue developing games under their new companies – Atooi and Infitizmo, respectively.

“Renegade Kid has announced that its co-founders, Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove, have made the difficult decision to bring their 10-year partnership of developing games together as Renegade Kid LLC to an end,” a message on their official website reads.

“With their friendship and respect for each other still very much intact, Watsham and Hargrove will continue developing videogames under the names of their new companies: Atooi and Infitizmo.”

Renegade Kid’s intellectual properties will be split between their creators, with 2D games such as the Mutant Mudds series and Treasurenauts to become the property of Atooi. Whereas 3D games like the Dementium series and Moon Chronicles will become Infitizmo’s property.
