Limbo, Inside Dev Co-Founder On Why He Left The Studio

Dino Patti, the co-founder of Inside and Limbo developer Playdead, left the Danish developer last summer amid a reported disagreement with other founder Arnt Jensen. Patti reportedly walked away with a $7 million package and has gone on to attach himself to an intriguing-looking indie game called Somerville.

Now, Patti has shared a little more insight into his departure from Playdead. Speaking to Eurogamer, Patti acknowledged some level of “fallout,” adding that Playdead still has a place in his heart and he is on speaking terms with almost everyone at the studio.

“There was some kind of fallout,” Patti said. “It is kind of delicate. It’s also combined with other personal reasons. I really like Playdead. It’s something that’s deep in my heart. I love the people there, they’re still my friends. I’m on speaking terms with 98 percent of the people there…”

“For me it was just time to do something else. I found a way to do it in a way where I could do whatever I wanted afterwards.”

Patti is the executive producer for the new game Somerville, which is being developed by The Avengers movie animator Chris Olsen from a new studio, Jumpship, in Guildford, UK.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
