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."
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 :(— Hello Games (@hellogames) December 28, 2013
It's not just us but our neighbours as well - some people *live* in those houses. At least we get to go home at night...— Hello Games (@hellogames) December 28, 2013
On a brighter note, no insurance means we can just wade in and start setting things straight! Hello Games assemble!— Hello Games (@hellogames) December 28, 2013
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.
