Dino Patti one of the founders of Playdead, the developer behind Inside and Limbo, has landed a $7.2 million payout for his shares in the company according to Danish newspaper Borsen. Patti officially left the company in July 2016 but has apparently not been on normal speaking terms with co-founder Arnt Jensen since 2015.
When leaving, Patti Tweeted
Following almost 10 incredible years building Playdead from an idea to two dents in the games industry, I’m leaving to seek new challenges.

Initially it was thought that he had left Playdead to pursue other challenges. However, it seems that the split was less than amicable and actually required intervention from the Danish Business Authority, a regulative body in Denmark. The company is now managed entirely by Jensen.
Playdead was founded by Dino Patti and Arnt Jensen in 2006. Inside is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
