To avoid injury or damage, it is important to read the following information that refers to the health and safety. Sea Dreams Games recommends that whenever children use our game, they should be watched by parents and/or by guardians.

 

  1. Warnings related to epilepsy

In some occasions, there are people who can have attacks or faints motivated by the flashes or light patterns produced when watching television or playing video games; these can also happen even if one has not previously suffered them. We recommend that anyone who has ever suffered a symptom related to epilepsy, whether it is a decrease or loss of consciousness, seizures or some type of attack, should check with a doctor before playing a video game.

 

In addition, Sea Dreams Games recommends that whenever children play video games they should be watched by parents and/or guardians. We recommend that the player (whether you or your child) stops playing and checks with a doctor if there are symptoms of diminution or loss of consciousness, seizures, vision variation, muscle or eye spasms, disorientation or involuntary movement.

 

Find next some precautions to take into account to reduce the likelihood of suffering an attack while playing a video game:

  • After every hour played, always rest between 10 and 15 minutes.
  • Avoid playing if you are sleepy or tired.
  • Always try to play in places that have good illumination.

 

  1. Warnings related to dizziness and visual fatigue

Sometimes, and especially after playing a video game for a long time, you can get some discomfort and even dizziness. Here are some recommendations to avoid dizziness, nausea or eyestrain:

  • Do not play for too long. If the player is a child, we recommend parents and/or guardians to control the time spent playing.
  • After every hour played, always rest between 10 and 15 minutes.
  • If nausea, dizziness or eye pain occur while you play, we recommend that you stop playing and rest for several hours.
  • In the event that these discomforts do not cease or you suffer others, we recommend you to stop playing and check with a doctor.

 

  1. Warnings about injuries caused by repetitive movements

 

Sometimes, and especially when playing for several hours in a row, it is possible that some discomfort may appear in the joints, muscles or even the skin. Find next some recommendations to prevent discomfort such as tendonitis, skin irritation or carpal tunnel syndrome:

  • Do not play the game for too long. If the player is a child, we recommend that the time spent playing is controlled by parents and guardians.
  • After every hour played, always rest between 10 and 15 minutes.
  • If symptoms such as tiredness, pain in the wrists, pain in the hands or arms, some kind of tingling, burning, numbness or some seizure appear while you play, we recommend that you stop playing and rest for several hours.
  • In the event that these discomforts do not cease or you suffer others, we recommend you to stop playing and check with a doctor.

 

  1. Caution and distractions

While playing, we recommend taking care of people and objects that may be around the player. We do not recommend playing the game while driving any type of vehicle (car, motorcycle, bicycle, etc.).

 

In general, and as video games require proactivity and stimulation, to avoid going against the sleep vector we recommend avoiding playing before going to sleep, as well as controlling the volume, the brightness and the type of light emitted by the screen during the evening.

 

Finally, we advocate respect for current regulations on the use of mobile devices.

 

  1. Use of the video game for childhood disorders

It is important to highlight that video games, if used to the extent indicated and avoiding overexposure by controlling the time of use, positively improve different cognitive abilities and can be a therapeutic tool in children who have, among others, attention deficit, motor problems, vision problems and/or autism problems.

Video games can help children to reason, to make decisions, to orient themselves, to improve their attention capacity, to focus on a specific activity and on their coordination.
