Indie developer Hello Games is up and running at "full speed" following a flood that tore through the company on Christmas Eve, managing director Sean Murray reports. Development of the studio's sci-fi roguelike sandbox No Man's Sky has resumed, and the game will not be delayed as a result of the flood assured Murray.
"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."
The team discovered that it was not insured for the flood damage, a situation that many here in Queensland felt when we were hit with floods back in 2011, but the team has since constructed a temporary location with some working from home. Murray expects the company to either relocate to a new office or rebuild its previous studio setup in the coming months.

The blog post also poked at the idea of Kickstarter, which Murray said while it is an interesting idea, it seems to not suit the development of No Man's Sky. "I just don’t think it’s the right thing for No Man’s Sky right now though, and we’d probably rather not eat than do the wrong thing for this game."
