Test Review

It’s no secret that Sapkowski isn’t a fan of video games. He would rather drink vodka or play cards; playing games is a waste of time, he told Eurogamer last year. In the early 2000s, Sapkowski sold the licensing rights to CD Projekt for a lump sum, instead of a percentage of sales. At the time, he could never imagine just how successful the franchise would become, or what The Witcher saga would eventually do for the gaming landscape.

“I was stupid enough to sell them rights to the whole bunch,” he told Eurogamer. “They offered me a percentage of their profits. I said, ‘No, there will be no profit at all – give me all my money right now! The whole amount.’ It was stupid. I was stupid enough to leave everything in their hands because I didn’t believe in their success. But who could foresee their success? I couldn’t.”

Now, Sapkowski feels he’s owed more. He and his legal team claim that the original sum was “too low” and that it was only for the first game and not the subsequent sequels. The team is asking for “at least” 60 million Polish złoty — or a bit over $16 million USD — in compensation
