Post-Flood Report From Hello Games

by Joe Juba on Jan 15, 2014 at 05:11 AM

The city of Guildford flooded on Christmas Eve, which meant that the office of Hello Games (the studio behind Joe Danger and the upcoming No Man's Sky) was partially underwater. It wasn't immediately clear how the damage would affect the studio's development efforts, but now Hello Games has shed some light on its future.

First of all, work on No Man's Sky will continue, according to the update on the studio's site. In fact, the team doesn't even expect the events to delay the game. They have relocated to a new, temporary location and are working "full speed."

Read the post yourself for more info about Hello Games' attitude toward Kickstarter and what the team expects to happen in the coming months.


Our Take
It goes without saying that the flood was a tragedy for Hello Games, but the team seems to have an unflinching positive outlook. You have to admire a developer that can bounce back from such an unexpected setback. Hello Games' obvious dedication makes me all the more excited for No Man's Sky.
