Obama Praises "The Witcher" video game as an Example of Polish Economic Success

03 czerwca, 2014

At a recent visit to Poland, United States President Barack Obama called attention to the success of the popular video game, "The Witcher," as an example of Polish cultural and economic success.

In 2011, Poland's prime minister, Donald Tusk gifted Obama The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, developed by acclaimed Polish studio CD Projekt Red.

"The last time I was here, Donald gave me a gift, the video game developed here in Poland that's won fans the world over, The Witcher," Obama said, as translated by CD Projekt Red's PR agency. "I confess, I'm not very good at video games, but I've been told that it is a great example of Poland's place in the new global economy. And it's a tribute to the talents and work ethic of the Polish people as well as the wise stewardship of Polish leaders like prime minister Tusk."

You can watch a video of Obama's comments on TVN24.

The Witcher is the most well-known video game series ever to come out of Poland, selling over 7 million units to date. CD Projekt Red's fantasy Witcher series is based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski's novel series.
