In the 80's Andrzej Sapkowski created a story about The Witcher, which appeared on the pages of the magazine called “Fantastyka”. This character was so appealing to readers and recipients that Geralt of Rivia himself became a main character of several books describing his whole life, a dozen of comic books, many short stories and several games.
In the early 2000s, the CD Projekt Red studio created a game entitled The Witcher, based on the events known form the books. The game also has a second and third edition, which turned out to be a worldwide hit. Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, despite being released in 2015, enjoys undying popularity even few years after the premiere.
