CD Projekt: “Our game is targeted to a grown-up audience”, “We won’t treat you as a child”
The Witcher 2 just came out recently for the Xbox 360 and has been on the receiving end of some fabulous reviews, including ours.
Managing director of CD Projekt Adam Badowski has said to Rock Paper Shotgun that they don’t make games for kids and always have an adult oriented theme in mind.
“Our game is targeted to a grown-up audience. Watching the opposite sex naked is quite pleasant, but real adults don’t get excited over a nipple,” he said of the RPG’s famous sexual content.
“They are a part of our world and their appearance in other media doesn’t shock anyone. The nudity in our game serves the story, it’s a form of artistic expression – they are a part of the game world,” he said.
They don’t try to make games which are accessible for everyone, but follow their vision and don’t care about what people think. The Xbox 360 version of Witcher 2 features a lot of adult scenes and there were very few cuts.
“There are few games like The Witcher 2, and we are not afraid to say, ‘Hey, we are not a game for everyone. We won’t treat you as a child – at any level.
“The gaming community is growing, and every demographic has something for themselves. Diversifying and finding your target is important. We’ve chosen ours – adults who want ambitious games. And we will stick to that,” he added.
