Poland puts CD Projekt Red's Witcher on official postage stamps

It's rare to see a nation recognize the work of game developers with an official stamp, and it's a fun nod to how highly Poland seems to value CDPR's games.

Polish developer CD Projekt Red confirmed this week that it worked with Poland's postal service to release a limited line of official postage featuring the likeness of Geralt of Rivia, protagonist of CDPR's popular Witcher games. 

It's rare to see a nation recognize the work of game developers with an official stamp, and it's a fun nod to how highly Poland seems to value CDPR's games, which are themselves based on the popular writings of Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.

This isn't the first time the country has made a show of celebrating CDPR's development work, either; back in 2011 then-Polish prime minister Donald Tusk gave U.S. president Barack Obama a copy of CDPR's Witcher 2 when Obama came for an official visit.

In 2014, Obama visited again and specifically referenced the games by name, noting in an official speech (translated by CDPR) that "I confess, I'm not very good at video games, but I've been told that [The Witcher] 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."
