In a speech possibly written by Mike McLintock, Selena Meyers's Director of Communications on HBO's Veep, President Obama mentioned The Witcher in a speech given today in Poland, where CD Projekt RED is headquartered. It was used as evidence of Poland's place in the new economy. I guess the people who tell the President what to say know more about that stuff than I do, so I'll take him at his word.
Of course, this story, while real, is a self-admitted attempt to bring attention to CD Projekt RED's big announcement at gog.com's summer conference.
