Insurance Won’t Cover Hello Games’ Flood Damage

Joe Danger and No Man's Sky developer Hello Games recently suffered a calamity when its offices were flooded. According to a recent series of tweets by the Guildford, UK-based studio, the damage it suffered in its offices on Christmas Eve are not covered by its insurance policy.

"BAD NEWS! Had a 'hilarious' call with insurer yesterday. Small print is if you are in a flood risk zone, you are not insured for flooding," Hello Games noted on its Twitter account.

On Christmas Eve a flood hit the area, and caused the company to lose almost everything in its office including PCs, monitors, and furniture.

Despite the major setback, the studio says that it is looking forward and not backwards.

"On a brighter note, no insurance means we can just wade in and start setting things straight," Hello Games added.

The company is currently working on No Man's Sky, a procedurally generated first-person sprawling space adventure. The company has been showing it off a lot this month at various venues including – most recently – 2013 Spike VGX.
