Every summer for the past few years a horde of cosplayers and photographers have descended on the picturesque Polish town of Wleń in the Bóbr Valley. They’re not there for a comic con or games expo, not for any convention like you and I know it. It’s an invite-only event, just a handpicked selection of photographers…
Geralt’s trip from the pages of Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels to the games we know today was not an easy one.
Hey, I know that guy!
Privisa is an upcoming animated feature film made in Poland, which is all about a kid who just does not want to grow up.
Thank You For Playing: Iconic Video Game Magazines is a documentary that just hit Steam. It looks fascinating, since it’s not just about old game magazines, but old Polish mags in particular, tracking their explosive rise in the wake of the Iron Curtain coming down.
Part of this teaser you're about to watch is live-action. Other parts are generated by an all-new bleeding-edge graphics engine. And, even if you can tell what's been recorded in reality and what's generated by software, you have to admit that the border between the two looks like it's dissolving.
Polish company Better Reality, who do effects work for advertisers and Hollywood, have developed a piece of technology called Thorskan. It's designed to scan real environments then recreate them in 3D. And the effects are impressive.
This is CATDAMMIT! It's about a cat, described by the devs as "a milkoholic hobo". His milk was spilled, so now he has a chainsaw, and he is destroying everything.
Why would a tower
defense "offense" game be the perfect inspiration for a beer? Because "warzone," spelled exactly that way, in Polish means "brewed." And the guys behind the Polish-developed Anomaly: Warzone series like to hoist a pint, too.
I'm pretty sure I've never seen a revolver this big. Even in a video game.
The Warsaw Uprising was a tragedy. In August 1944, with the Red Army at the gates of the Nazi-occupied Polish capital, resistance fighters rose up to battle the Germans and help make their liberation a little easier.
Earlier this week in Poland, a 30 year-old computer company employee arrived at work wanting to do two things: talk about Diablo III and his plan to kill people.
Did you build model planes as a kid? I did. F-14s, F-4s, F-18s, even the odd Mig-29. For a kid I like to think I did OK, gluing wings together and painting garish camo patterns on everything, but after seeing these models I feel despondent.
Poland Comes First, a political party in [GUESS] has made an advertisement that you may recognise. Especially if you like Fallout.
Pawel Blaszczak, a composer with credits on Call of Juarez and the first The Witcher, is handling the music for the upcoming Dead Island, whose soundtrack will be released separately in the game's collector's edition. Developer Techland let the Polish-language site Gameplay hear and share three of the cuts, embedded…
The Polish super-team building the cyberpunk FPS Hard Reset must think it's 1996 or something. The game is a PC exclusive, has no multiplayer, and although it was announced earlier last month, it's coming out later this year. That's how things used to get done around here.
President Obama, on a tour of Europe this week, stopped in Poland today to meet with Prime Minister Donald Tusk. As is customary, Tusk presented Obama with several gifts to commemorate his visit. One of those was the collector's edition of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
To call it that would be to give you the idea this is a comic, perhaps, or a shot of Miranda with her kit off. No, this is art that, while made by a fan, would be at home amongst professionals.
Provided, that is, you decide to play the role-playing title on "insane" difficulty. Which gives you one life. For a game that could take anywhere from 30-60 hours to finish.
The Xbox 360's online service Xbox LIVE is available in 26 countries. Poland is not one of them.
