The main character in the first demo version of The Witcher was female

18 July 2017 The main character in the first demo version of The Witcher was female

The 8 min gameplay review of the unreleased demo version of the Witcher game appeared on GamePressure YouTube channel. It had been developed by the studio CD Project as far back as 2003. 4 years before the release of the well-known version, there had been a project that significantly differed. What has changed?

First, it should be noted that the main character in the unreleased game prototype is a female Witcher Mika. Game creators were planning to introduce a male character, but it wasn’t supposed to be Geralt. Moreover, it was a Manticore School disciple, not the Wolf School, who a user could play for.

Although developers had signed a treatment with Andrzej Sapkowski by 2007 and gained all necessary rights to use the image of Geralt of Rivia. We can observe some moments from the first demo in the following versions. For example, the abovementioned School of Manticore had not been described in the book but appeared in the add-on ‘Blood and Wine’ to The Witcher 3 game.

According to the author of the recap video who managed to play the prototype version, the demo contained much more characters presented in the books. On the whole, the atmosphere of the gameplay fragments turns to be quite suitable, still a little bit unusual for the story.

Watch the video below, and have a look at it yourself.
