The Witcher 3, its world,
was gonna be yuuuuge from the start. We knew we’d need a faster means of exploring it. That’s why we started
to prototype horse travel early. We ‘ve done a lot of research,
got dozens of references. On my count – one, two, three! But somewhere in 2014,
a year before we were due to release, our in-house horse testers started complaining. They were experiencing nausea, dizzines. Two words – motion sickness. Turned out the design for Roach was just too good. We had to do something. As soon as the perfection problems with Roach surfaced,
my department started growing. It grew bigger and bigger. Because, you see, bugs are a way
of connecting people to the real world. Reminding them that,
at the end of the day, it is just a game. And since they need to be there,
we decided to design them just right. We recruited bug designers, concept artists, even organized custom mocap sessions. Go go go! Go! Higher head! Higher head! Yes… But the effort paid off. Roach became famous, starring in many Youtube videos, Run, deer! even a few animated shorts. I feel you’re getting angry at me? aye, and i apologize She got so famous we decided
that in the new upcoming expansion – ‘Blood and Wine’ we had to give a her a bigger role. Hi, my name is Wojciech,
and I’m the voice of Roach. Until Witcher 3 my main job was recording animal sounds. But as The Witcher 3 is an RPG game,
we decided to have an option to talk with Roach. Your’e awake ?
Had me worried, you were out way too long. Even considered giving you some White Honey.
Kinda hard to do with hooves, though. Talking with Roach will be available for only $4.99. Preorder now to get the Roach sticker.
