Nintendo Life has gone ahead with a new interview with Jools Watsham from Renegade Kid. Watsham talked about Moon Chronicles (sales and status of future episodes), the Cult County Kickstarter, and what’s planned for 2015.
You can find these excerpts below. Check out the full discussion here.
On sales of Moon Chronicles’ first episode and status of the other episodes…
RK: Yes, Episode 1 of Moon Chronicles has performed well. The remaining 3 episodes of the season are all sitting at Nintendo of America awaiting their approval for release. If everything goes well they will all be released in North America in January 2015. We do not have an update on a EU release at this time.
On lessons learned from Cult County and whether the game has a future…
RK: Cult County was born from the fact that we did not have Dementium rights at the time. Now that we have the rights to Dementium, it is unlikely we will release Cult County — but you never know what the future may hold, so I won’t rule it out completely. The main lessons I learned from the Cult County Kickstarter campaign is that potential backers want a very clear idea of what the game is, in terms of a playable demo or at least a representative gameplay video. This is obvious for a game that has a set destiny, but we were trying to present an opportunity for the backers to be involved from the ground floor in the creation of a new survival horror game from concept phase. This idea could still be accomplished, but we were not effective in doing so.
On 2015 plans…
RK: I am much more optimistic about 2015. Like you said, we have Dementium, Treasurenauts, and some other surprised planned for 2015 that will hopefully be huge successes!
