The recent flood damage done to the office of No Man's Sky creator Hello Games is not covered by the company's insurance, according to a series of tweets from the developer's official Twitter account.
Hello Games' studio was flooded on Christmas Eve after a nearby river broke its bank, resulting in the loss of computers, furniture and personal items. However, those located in the flood risk zone are not covered for damages.
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
