From 1 to 3 December, Game Jam with History took place at the National Film Archive - Audiovisual Institute, in Warsaw. Participants included amateur and professional designers and video game developers, who were tasked to reuse archival content from Europeana Collections and Polish online repositories (National Digital Archive, the National Library and the National Film Archive- Audiovisual Institute). The event had as a theme the First World War and the interwar period connecting to the upcoming centenary of Polish Independence.

Game Jam with History was part of TuEuropeana project. Created by the Polish Europeana Network, a local working group initiated by The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage in 2014 and coordinated by the National Film Archive - Audiovisual Institute, the project raises awareness of Europeana Collections materials and encourages reuse of digital archives.

In less than 48 hours, 32 participants created 11 new games approaching the topic creatively.
