Polish developer CD Projekt Red confirmed that Geralt of Rivia – the monster slayer from their hit game The Witcher 3 – will feature on the country’s stamps. The company is working with Poland’s postal service to produce a limited line of the product.
According to the official statement, 180,000 stamps have already entered circulation.
This isn’t the first time that the country has acknowledged the game developer’s significant presence in their global image, reports Gamasutra. In 2011 president Barack Obama received a copy of The Witcher 2 from then-Polish prime minister Donald Tusk.
In a 2014 visit, Obama also said that “I confess, I'm not very good at video games, but I've been told that [The Witcher] 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.”
The Witcher 3 released last year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It received nearly universal critical acclaim from fans and critics alike.
