Development Info - posted by suibhne on Fri 13 April 2007, 21:43:45

Tags: CD Projekt; Witcher, The

With its fifth entry hitting the presses yesterday, this seems as good a time as any to point out The Witcher blog over at IGN. Entries have focused mostly on the business and PR end of things, not on the actual game design, but it's an interesting first-person account of a small development team scrabbling to build an ambitious project from design doc to market. CD Projekt entered development with little idea of the scale of what they were trying to accomplish, but they've been successful enough to receive extraordinary media attention (for a small Eastern European project based on an IP not even published in English) and eventually sign with a major North American publisher.

I'm not holding my breath about Atari's handling of The Witcher, but the game's development history is impressive and it's still on my shortlist for 2007.
