For many years, computer games have been treated as something that children should be kept away from. Based on anecdotal speculation, it was argued that they were only a bad influence. This has changed recently. Now the Ministry of Science and Education has taken a very important step to change the false image of games.
This war of mine is free
The Ministry of Education announced that one of the most famous and most valuable Polish computer games in the world became available within the framework of the state program “Games in Education”. We are talking about the products of the 11-bit studio – This War of Mine. It touches on very important, but also very complex topics.
“Video games are one of the key elements of modern culture, and although it seemed unlikely a few decades ago, today – thanks to the phenomenal development of technology and the poetics of games – they can really influence our lives” – we read in the description of the state program “Games in Education”.
