‘Waterworks!’ is a free strategy game on PC about Grudziądz water supply system of the old days. The idea originated from another cooperation between dr Wacław Kulczykowski from the Faculty of History of the University of Gdańsk and Mateusz ‘scriptwelder’ Soklaszczuk.
The game is based on historical and archeological research findings, conducted by dr Wacław Kulczykowski at the Faculty of History of the University of Gdańsk and is financed by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education under Science Promotion Activities funds.
- A player is responsible to supply a medieval city with water and must use their skill to provide every household with sufficient amount of water. A player employs water carriers, extends water-pipe network, develops technologies and uses new inventions – explains dr Wacław Kulczykowski form UG Faculty of History.
It is a second, free, online scientific game developed together by dr Wacław Kulczykowski and Mateusz Sokalszczuk. In 2015 they created the game ‘Excavate!’, based on the excavation research conducted at the site of destroyed, 17th century evangelical cemetery in Nowe Monasterzysko village (Młynary municipality)
