The official PlayStation YouTube channel has released two new videos in celebration of CD Projekt Red and The Witcher series, and they’re a pretty cool watch.

The first, dubbed “The Origins of CD Projekt Red,” goes into detail with Marcin Iwiński, the co-founder of CD Projekt Red. Iwiński speaks about the very earliest days of the company and his own history, including the story of how, if not for the generosity of a stranger from Greece, he may have never gotten into the games industry at all.

The second, called “How The Witcher Took Over the World,” explains the history of The Witcher series and its ongoing popularity. Though there’s a little less new information here for fans of the series, compared to the one that dives deeply into the origins of the company itself, it’s still an entertaining watch—and a great look back at the earlier days of a series that’s become popular the world over.

Both videos explain some of the work that goes into CD Projekt Red’s games, including the company’s dedication to spending as much time as is necessary to ensure games are properly finished before release. With anticipation for the company’s next game, Cyberpunk 2077, growing over time, we can hope that the company’s next ventures will see a similar amount of care, and a similar amount of success.
