The weather at the end of 2013 wreaked havoc across the UK with atrocious flooding. I actually spent Christmas day picking someone up from the south coast in the car because all trains were terminated. That’s not nearly as bad as what happened to developers based in Guildford, especially Hello Games who are working on No Man’s Sky.
Hello Games lost most of their equipment due to flooding, their office was a right mess by the looks of the pictures they Tweeted out over the holidays. In a new blog post in the Hello Games site they look back at the destruction and talk about the current progress of No Man’s Sky.
The team have now moved to a smaller temporary location and the good news is they are now back at full development speed. They also state that there will be no delay to that game.
“At times recently I’ve wanted to be depressed, to wallow, but it’s impossible surrounded by this team. They are literally unstoppable. If we’ve lost some work, we’ll make up the time. We’ll steal dev-kits. We’ll work on a boat. Whatever it takes (not actual stealing… maybe :)”
They also mention that there are no plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign right now but gamers can support them financially by picking up their Joe Danger games.
