https://www.reddit.com/r/learnpolish/co ... e_games_a/

This discussion includes a lot of ideas on retro games in Polish, especially adventure games. Point'n'click, text based, etc.
The thread was started by a guy, who makes vocab flashcards sets for these games, and already has started a website with them:
https://polish.academy/kwiat-paproci
I haven't read the whole website, but just from skimming I can see he even compares the game wordlists with coursebooks like Hurra!, looks like a very promising project!

Polish isn't a language I'm learning but I'm really interested in how video games can help in learning a language. Sounds like a really great project. I might have to investigate and see if it's possible for other languages, e.g. creating flashcards from game vocabulary.

UK specific resource:
The Polish Educational Society is a charitable organisation which has been supporting Polish education in Great Britain for almost 70 years.

Our main core activity is the support of Polish Language Saturday Schools.

The aim of the organisation is to support the setting up and running of supplementary schools delivering ‘mother tongue subjects’: advice in how to set up a school, practical help with managing the school, activities to help raise teachers’ qualifications.

The Polish Educational Society also runs an Examination Centre where students are able to sit Polish Language examinations at GCSE and A-level.

We also:
    prepare conferences and professional training for teachers.
    run workshops to help prepare students for exams.
    organise a series of events which bring together Polish pupils and students, such as our regular Laxton Hall Fun Day and frequent competitions.
    help facilitate communications between Polish Language Saturday Schools and other organisations.
    run a Bookshop which offers a wide selection of text books and Polish literature.
    gather and collate information about all aspects of teaching ‘mother tongue subjects’ in Great Britain with the aim of supporting all interested parties: parents, students, headteachers, teachers.

A German language Polyglot Gathering talk reviewed a number of resources: Polnischlernen mit Erfolg: Die besten Apps, Lehrbücher und Websites. A PDF of the books/websites mentioned is currently available from the speakers website.
