The Witcher games make Polish Post proud

Translation from the article in French published on SébPhilatélie last Saturday 24 September 2016.

Since Friday 16 September 2016, millions of non philatelist teenagers and adulescents are reminded by their main video game news website that postage stamps still exist.
Geralt of Rivia on his own minisheet stamp (Poczta Polska).
The Post of Poland is proposing videogamers and stamp collectors 180 thousands single stamp minisheet, at the rate of six złoty. The Witcher series and its hero Geralt of Rivia reached their third episode in May 2015 on Windows computer and current generation consoles.

The games took inspiration from short stories and novels by fantasy writer Andrzej Sapkowski. In an universe miwing European Middle Age and magic, the hero fights monsters and braves dangers in an open world the player can fully explore.

A commercial issue?

Not necessarily: only one small rate Polish stamp honoring a Polish writer, whose works is known abroard, and using pictures of their franchised video games createed by Polish studio CD Projekt RED.

Where did I put the video game minisheet a friend brought back from Japan?
