I had the privilege to travel to Poland (long after working for a Polish company for so long!) to again work with CD Projekt Red, this time on Gwent – the Witcher card game.
The tradeshow was brilliant fun, and fascinating to observe the differences of a Polish local show to the larger European game shows I’ve worked. Fans were patient, giving with their time and keen to learn.
I demonstrated Gwent both at the booth space, on live streams and had the privilege of working with a team of brilliant cosplay talent to bring Witcher characters to life for photo ops and mingling.
One of the real highlights of this trip was visiting the CD Projekt Red studio. Being in the midst of setting up Robot House for the future, it was inspiring and comforting to hear the team talk about their growth, company culture and maintaining communication. I will always credit my time working for CDPR with instilling me with an enormous respect for the value of healthy company culture.
