Hello Games, the developer of the lovable Joe Danger series and upcoming sci-fi epic No Man’s Sky, has been hit by flooding, destroying everything in the indie developer’s office.
The sad news comes from Twitter, where Hello Games said:
Oh god. Water moves really quick. Hello Games has been totally flooded. Everything in the office has pretty much been lost 🙁
A lifesize cardboard cut out of Joe Danger went floating past face down. Poor Joe. He’s taking this the worst.
Massive thanks to everyone who tried to help here today. We have learned that laptops float sometimes.
Leaving now and letting firemen to help real people (all the houses around us with kids and xmas) – rather than us drowning to save a hdd 🙂
There’s no word on what this means for the studio’s upcoming games, and we can only hope that everything was backed up elsewhere.
Our best wishes go to Hello Games, as well as everyone else impacted by the flooding and torrential rain across parts of the UK.
