Telegraphist 1920: Beats of War is a narrative rhythm game that takes you back to 1920. See, hear and feel the Battle of Warsaw from a novel perspective - a war telegraphist, the crucial bond between soldiers and commanders.


The game idea has its origin on HackYeah 2022 - the biggest stationary hackathon in Europe. Our team participated in the "Polish Great Battles" category and won 2nd place! We came up with the idea to create a game about being a telegraphist during the Battle of Warsaw, by sending Morse code rhythmically. The proof of concept version was made in 24 hours by a team of 6 people.


  • Historical Campaign: Relive the dramatic Polish-Soviet War through a gripping narrative in over 10 carefully crafted levels
  • Boss Encounters: Throughout the campaign, you will encounter multiple soviet commanders leading their armies. Jam their signals, break soviet code, or use other ways to help your troops on the frontline.
  • Dynamic Gameplay: React to rapidly changing conditions, from broken machinery to fatigue that comes from endless hours of work. The fate of troops hinges on your steady hand.
  • Cosmetics Inventory: Immerse yourself further in the historical narrative by customizing your room with a trove of authentic items. Each piece carries its own story, forging a connection to the past.
  • Player-Made Campaigns: Create your custom campaigns using the built-in Level Editor and play all of them via the Steam Workshop.
