Hello Games now back in action after being hit by flooding

And stronger than ever says Sean Murray

After receiving a Christmas present of having their offices flooded Hello Games would be forgiven for feeling a bit down on their luck.

However they are back up and running, albeit in a temporary space at the moment with some of the team working from home. The heartbreak of losing their offices that they'd done up themselves and the collection of concept art that they'd managed to build up over the years hasn't dampened their spirits.

Studio boss Sean Murray wrote on the Hello Games blog, "What's happened sucks. It sucks to see years of concept art floating in muddy water, it sucks to lose so much so quickly (Christmas or not). When we moved into this office it was a wrecked warehouse, and we did it up real nice. It isn't some anonymous building to us, and it literally broke my heart to watch what happened. If you've been robbed (or flooded), you probably know how it feels. From the outside it might make us seem fragile as a company, but I promise we're strong and I hope we'll come out of this stronger." Hello Games now back in action after being hit by flooding

This is great news as, just before Christmas they revealed their next project, No Man's Sky, a breathtakingly ambitious space exploration game that caused more than a few jaws to drop when the trailer debuted at Spike TV's VGX awards show.
