Poland Gets Geralt’s Stamp of Approval

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.

Great to see big game developing happening outside of the traditional sphere of countries. I really believe CD Projekt Red set a new standard with the Witcher 3 and it is awesome that they appear to have the backing of their country to push on with making more awesome games

Of course, imo the Witcher 3 is the best game ever made, if you don't play it on xbox *because that is painful* and im allowing myself to be hyped for cyberpunk 2077

He's just a real-human troll. The scary kind, the kind that is actually a real person expressing their thoughts and feelings but is constantly their brand of troll.

Maybe people go through it. He's all good.

If they were actually a d*ck then that'd be a different story man. It's just a random comment with some random words, They didn't really intend to put in any meaning behind it ^_^

I'm actually being more of one than they ever are.

Awesome to see a country acknowledging and celebrating their game devs in this way! CD Projekt Red are certainly worthy!
