Recently, it has launched its prototype version of a new simulator game called Privasim. It is a kind of simulator game that have not been in the world before.

The main goal is to improve the company by passing through the levels available. To control the game, the players can use some following buttons; W to move up, S to move down, A to move left and D to move right.
