Why would they back them financially if they left the nest? Makes no sense.

To retain equity in the company and generate profits from their projects. This happens in many industries all the time. You give the company some seed money to get started and keep like a 30% stake so that as long as they keep making money, you keep making money, often many times your original investment. But that said, the guys from Turtle Rock likely made (and are probably still making) so much off sales from Left 4 Dead that they might just be bankrolling themselves.
