All you have to do now is contact us here – http://www.vg247.com/contact/ – and I’ll send you your code.

[Original Story]

In response to the original Witcher game turning five Adam Badowski, head of studio had this to say on the team’s official blog:

“Today is the 5 year anniversary of The Witcher series and let me tell you, it’s been an amazing journey. Each year, month, day and hour of the past 5 years has been truly extraordinary and I’m 100% certain that none of The Witcher team members would trade even one of those days away. It has also been a time of hard work and sacrifice but also a time of great satisfaction and massive achievements. We’ve managed to deliver The Witcher and The Witcher 2.”

“Back when we had originally started working on our first game, we never imagined that The Witcher would gain so many die-hard fans. The fact that we love what we do kept us going through the greatest obstacles, but we wouldn’t have made it without you guys – the players. I guess I just want to say thank you to each and every one of you who supported us throughout those years. Thank you!”

CD Projekt RED is marking the occasion by holding a community event, in which the Witcher forum’s most prominent fans will be invited to visit the studio and party with them. in a message to VG247, a studio rep said, “We are counting down to the 8th Birthday of The Witcher Forum and the event we prepared for our Polish fans in our HQ.”

“We’ve always taken our communitiy’s opinions seriously and we want to meet fans, who have been with us almost from the start of our work on The Witcher series. This is one of the ways we want to say “thank you guys for all your support!”.

We’ve teamed up with the studio to offer our readers the chance to win one of ten GOG codes for the original Witcher, and The Witcher 2. All you have to do is tell us which game you’d like to win (or both) in the comment box below and we’ll randomly pick winners over the weekend.

It’s a global competition, and they work on both Mac and PC. The Witcher comes with bonus soundtrack, digital art book and more, while the digital versions of The Witcher 2 also comes with bonus soundtrack, making of DVD, papercraft templates, an artbook, comic book and more.

Best of luck to everyone who enters.

    I would really like The Witcher 1. I don’t need the second one, since I’ve already played it, so I’ll leave that for one of the others guys so they can enjoy it as much as I did.

    TL:DR: The Witcher 1 pl0x

    Have played both and I believe they’re fairly enjoyable games. That being said, they were both over-hyped, especially because of the “mature” thing, which turned out to be not much of a big deal, in the end.
    The Witcher 2 was a much better game, mainly due to the fact that there are two completely different paths you can take, thus, playing a second time actually makes sense.

    Good luck with the competition everyone!

    I just recently finished the first witcher (bought it from GOG a year ago), great RPG that able to immerse me (finishing almost all of its quest in with the detective quest in Vizima temple quarter as my most favorite quest ever). So, I would love to continuing my adventure in the Witcher 2 if I won it here!!

  19. Erthazus

    They are fantastic games. One of the best RPG’s of this generation.

    Witcher 2 please. (I want bonus soundtrack and an artbook).

    Cut myself off from gaming for about a year for my senior year in high school. My exams end on the 28th of November! Never got the chance to play either of these games, and I would love to play them during my inevitable gaming binge, so I’m going to ask for both. :D
