Dementium, Renegade Kid’s classic DS horror title, may soon be making a comeback.
Renegade Kid’s Jools Whatsham made the following mysterious tease on Twitter:
We have some firm plans for Dementium, which I hope you'll be excited about. We'll be announcing some Dementium-related news in early 2015!

Although Renegade Kid is best known for Mutant Mudds, it has produced a number of very special games for Nintendo portables. Both Dementium and its sequel, as well as Moon, did things most developers believed were impossible on DS – atmospheric first person action.
Sci-fi shooter Moon has already been resurrected as Moon Chronicles, but horror series Dementium has languished, unloved, since the release of Dementium 2 in 2010 – although a Mac and PC port did help reignite interest in 2013.
Here’s hoping the news is an all-new entry for modern platforms, rather than a port or re-release.
