President Obama Talks about The Witcher
In 2011, Polish prime minister Donald Tusk gave U.S. president Barack Obama a copy of the video game The Witcher. On his return trip the President mentioned the gift, and let us know where he’s at with the game. Video game diplomacy for the win!
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. 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.
There’s also a comic for The Witcher published by Dark Horse.
