Today CD Projekt RED released a new video announcing that the studio received yesterday the “Creator of Culture” Paszport Polityki (Polityka’s Passport) award, a prestigious prize granted by the Polish weekly magazine Polityka.

The video, in Polish but including subtitles in English, included some interesting statistics about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

  • 1,500 people contributed to the creation of the game, including writers, concept artists, location artists,  character artists, animators, programmers, actors, cinematographers, sound designers, composers, stuntmen, designers, producers, testers, marketing, business, administration and more.
  • The script includes 820,000 words.
  • 2,000 drawings were made for the game.
  • The game’s world size is 136 square km.
  • The game has 1,500 characters.
  • Those characters are animated by 16,000 animations.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
