23 stycznia, 2015

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, This War of Mine, Anomaly Defenders, Shadow Warrior, Lords of the Fallen, MouseCraft, 1heart, Darkwood...

The Polish people are known to history buffs as fierce fighters and to enterpreneurs - as highly efficient and smart workers.

Young generation of Poles is also computer savvy, no surprise here - it was Poland where engineers, from city of Wroclaw as early as in 1960, started designing first computing machines, of Odra brand. That Poles can be creative will confirm any person interested at least a bit in music, film, theater, and literature. But can they we be playful? Yes! Two generations after innovators from Wroclaw, Polish designers try to corner the world market of computer games with their innovative offers.

Here are the best of the best in 2014:
