YouTube’s member ‘ryslaw’ has shared a video, showcasing the E3 2004 build of the first The Witcher game. As ryslaw revealed, the game’s combat mechanics were inspired by another RPG called Summoner (in which you could chain attacks). This version was powered by the Aurora Engine that was used in Neverwinter Nights. It looks cool, so be sure to check it out. We’ve also included the first part of ryslaw’s “The Witcher History” in which he revealed that the game was originally meant to be a top-down RPG with a fully customized character. Enjoy!
