"This is more of a team effort than the usual developer/publisher combo, and the first experimental attempt for Mojang to help another indie game developer to launch their game."

I remember seeing Cobalt on Reddit or somewhere a long way back and immediately getting the dev's site on my feeds. It looked promising back then and continues to today.
