Hello Games’ offices were flooded on December 24th when a river broke through its bank.
The developer has continued to update fans through Twitter posts. The latest update reveals that the insurance company won’t cover damages to the office because it was in a “flood risk zone.”
“BAD NEWS! Had a ‘hilarious’ call with insurer yesterday”, the developer’s Twitter post said. “Small print is if you are in a flood risk zone, you are not insured for flooding :(“.
However according to Hello Games the bright side of having no insurance means that it can “just wade in and start setting things straight!”. The studio has not yet commented on the state of its highly anticipated title No Man’s Sky.
