Hello Games: Insurance Won't Cover Flooding Losses
Insurance people. 'rolling eyes'
A bad Christmas Eve storm "totally flooded" the Hello Games studio in Guildford, UK. That's a really sh**** holiday present, isn't it?
Well, it's not getting any better, as the developer tossed up a depressing Tweet, apprising us of the ongoing situation:
"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."
That really sucks but as before, the team is trying to maintain a positive outlook. Later, another Twitter update said that just because insurance won't compensate, that won't stop them from "setting things straight." The studio lost almost everything in that flood, including a bunch of necessary office stuff, furniture, computers, etc. The developer produced the excellent Joe Danger games this past generation, and the small crew is currently working on the ambitious No Man's Sky for next-gen consoles.
Keep your heads up, guys!
