CD Projekt's recent trailer for The Witcher 2 appeared to have lots of information about what to expect from the game, but the developer hid a message that only pixel-hunting fans would notice.
Die-hard fans found a message hidden within frames of the trailer, which tells them what to expect from this return to the franchise.
"This message is for our biggest fans," reads the hidden note. "Analyzing our stuff pixel by pixel, bit by bit. It's good to see you again!"
The note goes on to poke fun at those who claim RPGs are losing popularity or that the PC is a dying platform, such as Michael Pachter did yesterday, saying: "We sold 1.5 million units [of a] dying genre on a dying platform - so we somehow cannot agree."
"Before we start talking about TW2 please let us thank you for your great support and appreciation," the message continues, "it always motivates us and makes us happy."
The note tells fans that the developer wanted to expand on the things that made the original Witcher game good. However, the message admits: "We are very proud of TW but let's be honest, it was our debut. We never made any game before, and we practically learnt as we worked. So, there were many things which could have been done better."
"The vision, the main concept remain the same; a game with a mature, captivation and unlinear story... A game created by a team of independent thinkers immune to corporate priorities, who don't care what's trendy at a given moment."
