Sure, Renegade Kid might be working with Mastiff on “Project M”, but that doesn’t mean Gamecock is out of the picture. We have a statement from Renegade Kid explaining what’s going on.
"I'd like to take this opportunity to state some facts, and hopefully squash some misconceptions, about the recent press release announcing our new DS title "Project M" with the good folks at Mastiff.
I have read comments on other websites that suggest some people believe the announcement of our next title implies that we do not want to work with Gamecock again. This could not be further from the truth. Our relationship with Gamecock is amazing. Working with the talented people at Gamecock has been an extremely positive experience, and one that both Gregg and I would love to repeat many, many more times.
Renegade Kid and Gamecock have been in talks regarding future game development since the day Dementium: The Ward was submitted to Nintendo (literally). The game(s) that Gamecock and Renegade Kid are discussing are more long term. Therefore, public announcement of them would not be for some time.
We are an independent developer who's goal is to develop great games. Our next game happens to be with Mastiff. That does not mean that our following game(s) won't be with Gamecock. We love Gamecock. We love games. Spread the word."
When I met some of the team from Renegade Kid they were enthusiastic about their relationship with Gamecock. This statement suggests that nothing soured after the release of Dementium. Also it’s pretty clear that Renegade Kid has more titles in development other than Project M. I guess now it’s time to do some probing to find out what they are!
