Session Name Witchcraft: The Alchemy of a Crafting-Based Economy
Speaker(s) Matthew Steinke
Company Name(s) CD PROJEKT RED
Track / Format Programming
Overview The Witcher series of open-world role playing games have beautifully captured the spirit of Andrzej Sapkowski's fantasy novels and immerse you in the journey of Geralt, the witcher of Rivia. In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt we were asked to take the game from its traditionally story-focused experience to a more realized role-playing game complete with crafting-based economy. The primary design challenge was to balance the living world experience by utilizing existing assets and bridging the gaps between legacy systems to create something completely new.
