Mutant Mudds is a game that started as a 3D platformer intended for DSiware. Renegade Kid was trying to get a publisher to sign on for the release, and thus, they worked on a video to show what the game would be about and how the gameplay would be handled.
After having trouble securing a deal, and with the 3DS having a set launch date, Renegade Kid shifted gears, made a 180°, and performed any other actions that symbolize a change in their approach to this project. Gone were the 3D graphics and DSiware release. Now, Max was the pixel-filled protagonist of an interesting 2D platforming game. The main theme of the game – Mudds have invaded and you must wash away all of them with your trusty water hose – and some of the gameplay mechanics were all that remained. Come to think of it, Mutant Mudds could even be considered a demake of the DSiware prototype! How meta is that?
