Christmas Eve wasn't merry at indie studio's Guildford HQ.

No Man's Sky

No Man’s Sky and Joe Danger developer Hello Games was flooded over Christmas Eve, the studio reported on Twitter.

“Oh god,” the developer said in a tweet. “Water moves really quick. Hello Games has been totally flooded. Everything in the office has pretty much been lost.”

It continued, “A lifesize cardboard cut out of Joe Danger went floating past face down. Poor Joe. He’s taking this the worst.”

The flood began after a river broke its bank yesterday. Hello Games describes a “biblical amount” of water flooding in through the windows.

“We’ve lost most things – PCs, monitors, furniture, a door, a wall,” Hello Games said. “You’d think the massive water cooled mega PC would be ok? It was not.”

But the studio is confident it’ll come back stronger. “All we need is a place to work and a machine to work on,” it said.

Hopefully they’re keeping backups of their projects.
