Sex is the strangest part of The Witcher 3, which no one on CD Project wanted to do

Romance is an integral part of role-playing games. Gamers like freedom of choice in quests, but even cooler

when players can develop relationships with other characters in their own scenario. At the same time, developers from CD Projekt Red are reluctant to engage in sex scenes.

What is known

In an interview for Eurogamer writer Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Yakub Shamalek said that no one in CD Projekt wanted to create sex scenes. According to the developer, it was a “rather awkward process” for the whole team.

“At some point, he entered the writers' roomproducer and said: “We need 12 cut scenes with sex. Who wants to write them? ”. No one wanted to do this. If I remember correctly, I wrote them all. It was a rather awkward process for all participants, ”said Shamalek.

According to the writer, at first he had towrite a script, describe what is happening and send it to the animators. Then the text fell into the hands of the mocap actors, who were supposed to follow the plot, acting out written scenes.

"The animators had to come up with how itto show and then lead the mocap actors, which is embarrassing, and then the actors have to do it and follow the script, which is also embarrassing. But sex is still awkward, so it worked out in the end, ”he added.

Yakub noted that when creating sex scenes, CD Projekt Red does not want to just show bodies, but to reveal more characters or add humor.
