Mikolai Stroinski's new music encourages players to lighten up as they "kick each other's butts" playing the soon-to-be-released tavern card game, Gwent, n expansion of the world of The Witcher 3 from CD Projekt Red.
In our conversation, Mikolai said that he really had fun writing slightly tongue in cheek music for the new Monster Deck!
Because of the tunings of the instruments used by the band Percival, all of the music for The Witcher 3 was written in the same key. Mikolai said it was a relief to be able to move to other keys, and explore other moods, while staying true to the musical identities of each faction.
