Very nice.

I think all developers should have the freedom to do what they want to do with out haven togo through someone for permission.

Here is hoping that Rare and Media Molecules buys them self back.

Good for them! LIMBO was a great game. Short and not much replay value, but it definitely stood out to me.

isn't that a bit risky

Yeah, it could be a risky move. Worst case scenario (hypothetically, of course) would be if their next game bombs on the market, thus having their studio fold if the initial investment was too high. I don't wish this for any independent developer, but it IS possible. Regardless, I tip my hat to Playdead studios for seeking both creative and financial freedom.
