Dementium

Renegade Kid is currently working on bringing the original two Dementium games to 3DS. The studio has interest in making a third entry, but that doesn’t mean it’s a sure thing to happen.

Speaking with GameSkinny, Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham said that the studio has “wanted to develop Dementium III for many years.” However, since a project would “require a huge investment in time and money”, we’ll only be seeing the game if the remastered versions perform well.

Watsham said:

“We have wanted to develop Dementium III for many years. Dementium III will require a huge investment in time and money, so it will depend on how well Dementium Remastered and Dementium II Remastered are received in the 3DS market.”

Renegade Kid’s Dementium franchise is heading to the 3DS. While chatting with Vinesauce during a live stream event last night, co-founder Jools Watsham shared news about what’s planned for the IP.

Renegade Kid is bringing the first Dementium game to the 3DS eShop. The company is working to address some of the more “brutal” elements like enemies that constantly respawn and the save system. In the U.S. release of the first Dementium, players would return to the beginning of the chapter if they lost to a boss. Watsham mentioned that the European version addressed this somewhat by adding automatic checkpoints before boss encounters, though it was still “not quite there.” Dementium II featured save devices, and Renegade Kid would like to implement something like that into the new eShop release.

Renegade Kid regained the rights to the Dementium IP a few months ago. The studio is already taking advantage of that, as there are “some firm plans” in place for the franchise. Renegade Kid co-founder also teased on Twitter today that an announcement of some sort will be made early next year.

Watsham’s tweet is as follows:

Yesterday, Renegade Kid confirmed that the studio is now in possession of the Dementium IP. That means the company is free to do anything and everything with the franchise.

Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham has since issued a statement about the situation to Eurogamer, and told the site, “We will be exploring all possibilities, including sequels and ports, and we’re open to the idea of working with a publishing partner or going solo.”

The full comment reads:

“We’re very excited about having Dementium return home. We will be exploring all possibilities, including sequels and ports, and we’re open to the idea of working with a publishing partner or going solo. We haven’t ruled it out, but we do not currently plan to do a Dementium kickstarter campaign. It is pretty great to have these options with a brand that both our loyal fear-loving fans and us love so dearly, and so dreadfully. The team is really looking forward to lose their minds again in the blood-soaked corridors of Dementium.”
