Earlier this week Renegade Kid revealed a new 3D platformer for the DS: Maximillian and the Rise of the Mutant Mudds.
You take the role of a young boy, Maximillian, whose neigbourhood is infested by gooey creatures known as Mudds. A water pack in hand he sets out to do a little cleaning to rid the planet of these creatures who came from a recent meteor crash.
Unlike Renegade's other titles on the DS, the current setup sees players using the D-pad to move about, and having a more precise shooting mode also controlled by the D-pad (whilst holding a shoulder button). The touch screen provides free look, whilst auto-focus kicks in to try and keep Maximillian centred on screen.
The studio is currently without a publisher for the project, and is looking whether to go down the download, retail route or both.
