As the whole world is currently being impacted by the spread of the COVID-19, we decided to do our part by joining the #PlayApartTogether initiative. We want to support gamers and everyone around the world by encouraging them with the following message to "stay home, practice physical distancing, and play games together."

In addition, we have decided to hold our own in-game campaigns so that players can enjoy their time at home starting today. Details of the in-game campaigns will be announced on the official websites and social media pages for each title.

Message

To everyone around the world,

I believe that we are all feeling uneasy these days because of the new coronavirus (COVID-19). Staying at home is now more important than ever to prevent transmission and protect our loved ones. Games are a great form of entertainment you can enjoy at home. Instead of going out, we can work together to help contain the infection by staying home and playing games with our families, partners, and friends (#PlayApartTogether).

We have also set up campaigns to help you enjoy some of the games we have to offer.

We pray for the safety and good health of everyone around the world.

KLab Inc.
