Renegade Kid LLC was a video game development company that was founded in early 2007 by Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove. The company is known for making Dementium: The Ward for the Nintendo DS. In 2014 the company announced that it was going to hold a Kickstarter campaign to fund an upcoming episodic first-person horror game entitled Cult County.[1] The campaign was ultimately unsuccessful and Renegade Kid announced that the game would still be created, but that it would take much longer to complete.[2]

On 29 August 2016, it was announced that Renegade Kid has closed, to be replaced by two new studios: Atooi (who owns all of Renegade Kid's 2D IPs, such as Mutant Mudds) and Infitizmo (which owns all of Renegade Kid's 3D IPs, such as Dementium).[3]
