Witcher: adventure game

First pics of the game came from Gamescon, where CDProjekt RED presented prototype of Witcher. It was lighting storm. No teasers, no announcements, nothing. Just bam! We have Witcher game, we were working on it for the past few months. It is almost finished.

Polish game forums were super hot those days. And then silence again – CDProjekt was silent as a grave.

Till today. Again they dropped a bomb. Nuke, to be precise.

Witcher trailer is amazing. I knew all this artwork, cards, everything for months and still I am super excited. Great job. Information about partnership with Fantasy Flight Games immediately puts Witcher as one of most discussed games of 2014. This is scale like no other game from Poland ever had.

My flirt with FFG has a history. In 2009 I signed a contract for English edition of Witchcraft, but after few months it was canceled because of changes at FFG (even though the game was almost in print). The same year we were discussingย Stronghold. This time again no happy end. FFG decided that game has too strong euro feeling, not enough ameritrash. That’s how Stronghold got published by Valley Games. ย When Rafal Jaki from CDProjekt told me few months ago that there are negotiations with FFG, I had no big hopes.

But this time I was lucky. Witcher is going worlwide. With a huge ‘W’

    Really excited about this game! Witcher + Trzewiczek = going to kick ass!

    I’ll forgive the FFG involvement (kidding kidding) at least they have a pretty amazing distribution network so the game will be widely available and have good support, etc.

    So I have a question regarding the game itself. Does it have expansion potential? Or is it designed as a stand alone type title.

    Congratulations Ignacy! This is a great catch for you… and, I suspect, for Fantasy Flight and the boardgame public too.

    Thanks Larry!

    According to expansion, as with most adventures games, you can always add more stuff. The ball is at the publisher court ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can imagine having a few new characters coming in expansions… man, the game is not even published yet, and we already want to see expansions… ๐Ÿ˜€ I smell huge success in the air… ๐Ÿ™‚
