Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Crytivo has announced that the company will be offering a 30% discount on every game in the Crytivo Store for the foreseeable future.
The savings will be coming out of the publisher’s shares and will not affect any developer revenue. Crytivo is an Indie Game Publisher and the studio behind the planet management god game, The Universim. The new initiative is aimed at drawing awareness to the COVID-19 outbreak and “helping people stay at home during the pandemic.” As part of the campaign, they are sharing some useful guidelines to stay safe and protect loved ones.
Alex Koshelkov Founder & CEO commented:
We decided to step in and try and make our fans’ days a little better with all of the bad news going around nowadays. Due to the increasing severity of the coronavirus outbreak, we also wanted to help spread some useful information on how to best protect yourself and others during this time. We are publishing this info across all of our social media channels. Stay safe out there!
Steps to protect yourself.
Clean your hands often
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
Steps to protect others.
Stay home if you’re sick
- Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.
Cover coughs and sneezes
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
- Throw used tissues in the trash.
- Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Wear a facemask if you are sick
- If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room. Learn what to do if you are sick.
- If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.
Clean and disinfect
- Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
- If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
