The perception of video games in Poland is still focused predominantly on their entertaining qualities, with relatively little attention paid to the ways in which they can serve as an efficient means of engaging in debates about current problems, dynamically representing important issues, and changing social attitudes. In recent years this view has started to change, especially due to the great success of This War of Mine, which helped build a stronger awareness of the existence of games that do not only entertain, but also involve the players deeper in real-world problems. The number of such games in the Polish gaming industry has been steadily growing, but it is still a relatively small niche which we want to encourage further.
