Hello Games Updates on Post-Christmas Flood Situation, Insurance Will Not Cover Office Damage

on December 30, 2013 11:16 AM

Having a massive flood run through your office would definitely not have been the best post-Christmas plans that developer Hello Games could have asked for during the holidays, but apparently neither is the situation that the flood has left them in financially.

Hello Games (previously of the Joe Danger series, and currently working on No Man’s Sky) tweeted with updates on the situation following the flooding of their offices in the UK after Christmas, as the studio unfortunately suffered severe damage and equipment loss. After filing an insurance claim, the studio tweeted that unfortunately the damage to their office is not covered under the insurance plan as the building is located in a “flood risk zone.”

While the studio is not covered for the damage to the office or for recouping costs of lost equipment and computers, the studio is still keeping things optimistic as their tweets imply: best of luck to the Hello Games staff for recovering from the flooding.
