It's not just a game, ...

... it, like any great cultural work, builds on the creative work of the generations that have come before.

Late in the Blood and Wine expansion, deep in a dark forest, in a clearing along a deserted road, The Witcher comes across a looted chest. In the chest is a note, written in despair by the chest's owner, whose collection of "precious" silverware has been stolen.

The owner has signed his note: his name is Smigole Serkis.

(If the allusion passes you by, go read about the work of the pioneering performance-capture artist Andy Serkis.)
