Today I’d like to talk more about how the Quality Assurance (QA) team works during different stages of a game development project. From the beginning, we in the QA team are seriously involved in all the work. We are the first focus group confronted with the team ideas.

Cyberpunk 2077 inspirations

Our Cyberpunk 2077 blog has published some articles about our approach to adapting the pen and paper system for our video game. Mike Pondsmith himself explained, why he has chosen us to work with him.

Now its time for a new series on the blog. Damien Monnier (aka. Frenchman Extraordinaire or Cyberchef) not only recommends what games set in cyberpunk world are worth playing, but also lists which particular features make them unique.

“Whilst CyberPunk 2077 has its own unique, incomparable flavour, it is always important as a Dev chef to take a look at existing recipes in order to understand what sort of cyberpunk experience players have already come across and, most importantly, what you can learn from it.” – writes Damien.

5 years of The Witcher series

Today is the 5 year anniversary of The Witcher series and let me tell you, it’s been an amazing journey. Each year, month, day and hour of the past 5 years has been truly extraordinary and I’m 100% certain that none of The Witcher team members would trade even one of those days away. It has also been a time of hard work and sacrifice but also a time of great satisfaction and massive achievements. We’ve managed to deliver The Witcher and The Witcher 2…
Back when we had originally started working on our first game, we never imagined that The Witcher would gain so many die-hard fans. The fact that we love what we do kept us going through the greatest obstacles, but we wouldn’t have made it without you guys – the players. I guess I just want to say thank you to each and every one of you who supported us throughout those years. Thank you!
