The offices of Joe Danger and No Man's Sky developer Hello Games were flooded this week, as detailed in a series of tweets by the studio. "A river broke its bank nearby yesterday, and A LOT of water flooded in really quickly. A biblical amount. It was coming in the windows!"

Unfortunately, the damage was severe. "We've lost most things -- PCs, monitors, furniture, a door, a wall ... Lots of personal stuff lost (my console collection! my super rare Neo Geo Pocket!) -- that line between home and office is a little blurry."

Just going to show how great these folks are, Hello Games tweeted yesterday "We're taking stock today, but already I know we'll come back stronger :) -- all we'll need is a place to work and a machine to work on :)" and the official No Man's Sky Twitter had good spirits as well: "If one more person tweets 'every flood procedural' I'm gonna... lol each time. Gotta laugh init :)"

I sincerely hope the team had offsite backups but either way, this is going to be a messy situation to work through -- and what a time for this to be happening. Best of luck, and hang in there, guys.
