The Witcher - RPG Redefined:

"He brought some kind of a dragon for sale, such a cross between a spider and a crocodile. People thought him to be a witcher.

"What is a witcher?" asked Fifteen, the naked one. "Eh? Civril?"

"A hired witch," answered the half-elf. "A trickster for a handful of silver coins. Told you he was a prank of mother nature.

An abhorrence in the eyes of gods and people. Such as him should be burnt."

This is the whole climate of The Witcher game. Based on the Aurora engine from BioWare allows bring lot of solutions used in other RPG games. An amalgam between visual stunning, fast-paced action and immensely deep and intriguing storyline will bring new quality of RPG gaming. Game has it all: violence, stimulants, dirty language and eroticism, and is targeted for older players.
