Hello Games offices flooded in holiday storms

"Everything in the office has pretty much been lost"

The office of Hello Games, the team behind the Joe Danger series and the ambitious forthcoming open world space sim No Man's Sky, has been completely flooded in the storms which soaked Britain over the holiday period.

The flooding occurred just before Christmas, with the developer's Guildford offices being almost completely immersed. The team announced the disaster via Twitter on Christmas eve, before going on to catalogue the extent of the damage, which included PCs, laptops, furniture and, incredibly, an entire wall. Large amounts of personal belongings were also lost.

Sorry to hear that :-( ... It sounds like Born Ready Games were also flooded - but with much less damage ([link url=""]http://www.polygon.com/2013/12/26/5245472/strike-suit-zero-developer-hit-by-guildford-floods[/link]) ...
