In a continuing streak of bad luck, developer Hello Games found that the damage to its office last week won't be covered by flood insurance. Microsoft's Phil Spencer said he had heard about the studio's situation on Twitter, and that he is "going to look into it."
Hello Games is the developer behind No Man's Sky, the procedurally generated MMO that captured audiences' attention earlier this month. Floods devastated the studio last week, the team said, destroying pretty much "everything in the office." The team said that efforts with insurance claims failed, as living in a flood risk zone prevents flood coverage.
The team has been taking stock, saying it will come back stronger.
"All we'll need is a place to work and a machine to work on."
