Mutant Mudds Deluxe Makes a Splash on PS3 and PS Vita Today

Jools Watsham's Avatar Posted by

Renegade Kid

I am thrilled to announce that today marks not only Mutant Mudds’ debut on PlayStation, but also Renegade Kid’s first PlayStation game ever. Excite!

The unique PlayStation experience you get with Mutant Mudds Deluxe is very special. The game supports Cross-Buy and Cross-Save. Buy Mutant Mudds Deluxe on PlayStation Store once, and you get it on both PS3 and PS Vita! So, if you want to play it on your PS3 today, then take it on the go tomorrow with your PS Vita, Mutant Mudds Deluxe has you covered. You can transfer your saved progress between your PS3 and PS Vita via the cloud and not miss a Muddy moment.

If you’re unfamiliar with Mutant Mudds Deluxe, it’s a “12-bit” 2D platformer with challenging level design and some inter-dimensional leaping between the foreground and background layers – a real treat for the eyeballs! “What is so ‘Deluxe’ about it?” you may ask. Good question! The ‘Deluxe’ edition adds 20 new devilishly-difficult Ghost levels into the Muddy mix, bringing the total level count to a staggering 80. There’s also a new Ghost Shot power-up, a multitude of secret playable characters to find, mid-level checkpoints (which can be toggled on/off), and a bevy of Trophies to collect and brag about to your friends.

When we originally created Mutant Mudds, we did not know how many people were going to be able to play our baby or if anyone other than us would really enjoy it. We were genuinely surprised, humbled, and overjoyed with the tremendous response the game received from players and the press. Whether you’re an avid fan of Mutant Mudds who is excited to play it on your PlayStation, or a new player who is looking forward to experiencing the Muddy apocalypse for the first time, thank you for your support and we look forward to entertaining you more in the future! Keep it Muddy, my friends.

Was picking up ‘Terraria’ and ‘Stick it to the Man’ today for the holiday travels, but might have to add this to the list…

    The PlayStation version is the only one that provides both the PS3 and PS Vita versions for one price.

    Mutant Mudds Deluxe is also $9.99 on Steam and Wii U.

As I watched the video I immediately said to myself “Wow, it looks like it’s somewhere between 8-bit and 16-bit.” Then just a ways further into the video I see you actually call it “12-bit.” I’d say you achieved exactly what you were going for! Job well done, game looks great! Count yourself one more sale.

    Thanks so much. Happy to hear you’re digging the 12-bit art style. :)

Cross-Buy and Cross-Save will make it a definite purchase for me… I was able to finish Guacamelee and now (finally) playing Rainbow Moon solely because of the flexibility in play that those two features allow… thanks Sony and dev!

    Awesome! Thank you. I really love the Cross-Buy / Cross-Save feature.

Damn I was hoping all those first comments guys grew up or died … The game looks good brings my mind back to old school gaming … I want it any chance it will come to the PS4 ?

    Yes, there’s definitely a chance of the game coming to PS4 in the future.

I was really excited when I saw this on iOS but the controls made the game so hard to play! Looking forward to trying this on my Vita with some real d-pad action :D

    December 17th, 8:52 am

    Yeah, I agree. I like buttons. :)

    Personally, I think the game feels great on the Vita d-pad.

Love it. I played this a while back on my nephews 3ds. Never got to finish it, but I’m very excited to play this on my vita. Hopefully we’ll see more games from Renegade Kid on ps3 and vita. =)

    We are super excited to finally be a part of the Sony family, and truly feel welcomed in. We would love to release more games with Sony in the future.

Second question: Will this have 3dTV compatibility?

    No, sorry. This does not support 3dTV.

Im glad I didnt get this on 3DS like I was thinking about! I’d much prefer it on Vita and with trophies

Mutant Mudds was the one game that made me regret selling my 3DS to buy a Vita but now I don’t have that problem anymore! Sweet!

game length ?

    Jools Watsham said:

    December 17th, 10:04 am

    2 to 20 hours, depending on your skillz. :)

    The first 16 levels gradually ramp up in challenge, and then the last 4 levels of the “known” world are quite difficult. And then, there are the 20 secret (G-Land & V-Land), 20 Grannie, and 20 Ghost levels, all of which pack a punch in terms of challenge.

Crossbuy $10? I’m in!

pablofsi08 said:

December 17th, 10:40 am

Since you guys are being so receptive let me leave my opinion about all these new games with game heroes that look like nerds lately: I’m not a nerd and I don’t like them, don’t lose my kind of public because that will degenerate games so much to a point they will stop being in touch with what most people like and will start disappearing and failing hard. My 2 cents.

    No worries. That’s cool. I never expected Mutant Mudds to appeal to everyone. No game can.

    It was not our intention to make Max look like a nerd. Sure, I can see how he might look a little nerdy to some, but he doesn’t to me. He’s a school kid wearing glasses and shorts.

    My focus with this game was to present a world, setting, and player-character that could allow the kid in you go on an adventure.

    Some players love this. Some don’t. :)

pablofsi08 said:

December 17th, 10:41 am

I would have probably bought this if the hero looked somewhat normal but aside from being a nerd, he doesn’t fit at all with the adventurous theme. At all.

The nostalgia I get from looking at this game. Yeah I’ll be buying this.

tusunami said:

December 17th, 11:25 am

This is a great platformer I can tell by the trailer, & it’s going to be fun to play as well. All of these original excellent titles coming out for the PS Vita. This is what the system needs & more marketing for the holidays going forward.


December 17th, 11:31 am

@CatatonicAlex Me 2 lol if I Win the Mega Millions ill buy you a game lol =D

PrimeroIncognito said:

December 17th, 12:06 pm

I was checking out videos of this game on Youtube yesterday and it looks really fun to me. I like the idea of jumping back and forth between background and foreground layers. And the music sounds really cool.

I love classic-style platformers. Will definitely be buying this today.

i enjoyed the 3ds version but im getting it a second time on Vita because you guys diserve it!

Great music! Can you say what codec/bitrate the audio assets are encoded at on VIta and PS3?

I only ask b ecause some other iOS-derived ports had middling MP3, which was a noticeable drop in quality from the 256-320kbps Ogg/AAC we’ve grown used to on PlayStation platforms :)

plaztiksyke said:

December 17th, 2:12 pm

PS: here’s another vote for 3D support :)

belmont_gr said:

Will you release the game in Europe?

Aces73High said:

December 17th, 2:35 pm

Hey Jools. As a long-time fan of you guys over at Renegade Kid, I’ve played Mutant Mudds to death on my 3DS — and had an absolute (and rather challenging) blast in doing so! So as you can imagine, I was delighted to hear that I’d soon be able to play Mutant Mudds on my Playstation Vita too.

If you’re still around though buddy, I do have a quick question for you — as a Londoner, I must admit to more than a tinge of disappointment to learn that Mudds is still some way off of an EU release. With this in mind, I was kinda hoping that you might have an estimate as to how long it’ll be before us Brits can partake in a little Mudds bashing in full, ultra-shiny, OLED splendor? In fact, the exact same question applies to the Wii U version too, so any kind of rough timescale concerning both (or either) platforms would be hugely appreciated.

With Renegade Kid on the cusp of embarking on it’s journey onto our beloved Playstation platforms, may I take this opportunity to wish you all the success in the world :-)

    Thank you! I am sorry for the delay on the EU release. We hope to have it sorted out in the new year.

    I really appreciate your support.

The game isn’t appearing on PS Store in the UK, is there any reason for this ?

I have to wait for Christmas to see if I get a PSN card before getting this. Sucks waiting. Can’t wait to play it on PS Vita.
