In case you haven’t figured it out already, I’m a huge fan of Metroidvanias, and I was pretty impressed with Renegade Kid’s recent 3DS platformer, Xeodrifter. This week, I had a chance to to catch up with Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham — along with Invisible Gamer’s Austin Clark and Gabe Gurwin — and we spent almost 90 minutes chatting about the company’s latest and greatest. Give it a listen if you enjoyed the game; we talk everything from map design to boss battles that didn’t make the final cut, to the possibility of a sequel. We also briefly touch on the upcoming 3DS remake of Dementium: The Ward and the neverending “coming next year” status of Mutant Mudds 2!
