Hello Games Talks Flood Damage: “We’ll Come Back Stronger”
Tragedy struck yesterday after Hello Games revealed their office had flooded, destroying everything. Now, with a new day having dawned, the Joe Danger and No Man’s Sky developer took to Twitter to provide a few updates.
Hello Games said:
Ok so this is a weird Xmas day. Thank you to *everyone* for being lovely and thoughtful in this crappy time – now go enjoy your Christmas
A river broke its bank nearby yesterday, and A LOT of water flooded in really quickly. A biblical amount. It was coming in the windows!
We’ve lost most things – PCs, monitors, furniture, a door, a wall. You’d think the massive water cooled mega PC would be ok? It was not
Lots of personal stuff lost (my console collection! my super rare neo geo pocket!) – that line between home and office is a little blurry
We’re taking stock today, but already I know we’ll come back stronger – all we’ll need is a place to work and a machine to work on
With the official No Man’s Sky account joking:
If one more person tweets ‘every flood procedural’ I’m gonna… lol each time. Gotta laugh init
While the news of the flood was most certainly terrible, we’re glad to see that the developer is in high spirits. Here’s hoping things only get better from here.
