Update: Hello Games Not Insured for Flood Damage

Category: Gaming
Posted: 03:42PM

If you happened to get away from your family and check OCC or Twitter on Christmas, you may have seen that the office of indie developer Hello Games was flooded when a nearby river broke its bank. According to Twitter, the developer found out today that the fine print on its insurance policy states that "if you are in a flood risk zone, you are not insured for flooding."

At least the four-man team seems to be upbeat through the whole ordeal, though they still haven't provided any insight on whether or not this impacts development of No Man's Sky and/or Joe Danger Infinity.

Damn, hopefully they didn't get a lot of damage to the building and their equipment.

It sounds like everything in their office was destroyed, but hopefully they have off-site backups for their games.

Even though it is a serious thing, they are acting pretty jolly about it lol. It is a shame insurance companies need small print to scam their customers.
