Replay. The Polish Journal of Game Studies (ISSN: 2391-8551) is devoted to interdisciplinary study of games, gaming, and gamers. We publish original research results conducted from different perspectives, cultural, sociological, and philosophical among others, with a strong focus on the history of digital games. We wish to develop a common language digital games scholars could use independently from the perspectives they employ. For this reason, we also welcome papers concerning the typology of digital games and its corresponding terminology. The journal publishes papers both in Polish and English.
