“I’m leaving to seek new challenges.”
Playdead has just released the critically acclaimed game Inside and also created the 2010 hit indie game Limbo. The studio has never been more popular than it is right now but co-founder Dino Patti has decided to leave.
Patti took to Twitter to announce his departure from the Danish independent studio saying he was leaving to “seek new challenges.”
Following almost 10 incredible years building Playdead from an idea to two dents in the games industry, I’m leaving to seek new challenges.

Playdead was co-founded in 2006 by Arnt Jensen and Dino Patti. The studio received acclaim when its first game, Limbo, was released on the Xbox Live Arcade back in 2010. The studios second game, Inside was a spiritual successor to Limbo and has also been highly praised by both gamers and critics alike.
We wish Patti all the best with his new ventures and look forward to seeing what new innovations he brings to the gaming industry.
