Dementium: The Ward, previously known as The Ward, tells a twisted story with gruesome 3D visuals and FPS gameplay. The game's interactive narrative reveals the puzzling nature of a strange hospital frozen-in-time, and introduces a cast of peculiar characters.

“Renegade Kid is looking to move above and beyond what most games are attempting on the DS, and with Gamecock we’ve found a publisher who is supportive, developer friendly, and willing to give us the freedom to create the game we want,” said Jools Watsham, Owner and Creative Director of Renegade Kid. “Dementium showcases what a powerful piece of hardware the DS is, while drawing in a mature crowd that’s looking for a title they can really sink their teeth into.”

“From the first meeting, Renegade Kid have proven themselves to be innovative, unafraid to push the ‘norms’ of gaming and incredibly talented – all of which we think are the key characteristics of a great developer,” said Harry Miller, Head of Development of Gamecock Media Group. “It’s great when you can sit down with a developer who shares the same vision of where games should be going in creating new and exciting titles to offer an alternative to the bland remakes and sequels flooding stores today.”

Dementium: The Ward tells the tale of a man who awakens to find himself alone in a mysterious, derelict hospital that is frozen in time. Confronted by the deadly, grotesque surgical experiments that wander the halls, a series of challenging puzzles and a cast of peculiar characters, he must face his deepest fears, unlock the mysteries of the hospital, and escape with his life.

Dementium: The Ward takes advantage of the unique properties of the Nintendo DS system with touch-screen exploration, puzzles, and Wi-Fi multiplayer gameplay. Using the Nintendo DS touch-screen to look and aim provides the player with an enhanced sensation of freedom and control. The dynamic real-time flashlight immerses the player deep into the game's eerie atmosphere and allows the player to search the dark corridors of the hospital.

Dementium: The Ward is scheduled to launch Fall 2007
