In this essay I elaborate on the changes that have occurred in the largest Polish fantasy universe after the release of The Witcher, a computer game developed by the Polish company - CD Projekt RED. The magnitude of conceptual work put into the creation of the game's digital environment, which expands on the reality of the novels the game is based on, has led to a shift in the authorship of the Witcher's entire universe. The Witcher is therefore not merely another adaptation of the novel, but constitutes a part of its universe and is an important extension that guarantees its further development in new media.
