Following a recent storm hitting the United Kingdom today studio Hello Games’, developer of the Joe Danger series and the upcoming No Man’s Sky, office in Guildford has been completely flooded, the developer revealed on twitter today.
“Oh god. Water moves really quick. Hello Games has been totally flooded,” the studio wrote. “Everything in the office has pretty much been lost :(“
“A lifesize cardboard cut out of Joe Danger went floating past face down. Poor Joe. He’s taking this the worst,” Hello Games added. “Massive thanks to everyone who tried to help here today. We have learned that laptops float sometimes.”
“Leaving now and letting firemen to help real people (all the houses around us with kids and xmas) – rather than us drowning to save a hdd :)”
Hello Games, a studio with less than 10 people in employment, just recently announced the ambitious procedurally generated sci-fi game No Man’s Sky. The studio also planned on releasing Joe Danger Infinity fairly soon. The status of both projects have not been confirmed as the developer is dealing with the aftermath of the storm. More information concerning the impact of both games should be revealed in the upcoming days.
But so as long as everyone made it out safe, all is well.
