– Archery is my passion. I’m an active archer myself and one of the members of our supervisory board is an archery instructor teaching a group of students. We have always dreamt of creating a game, which will accurately depict the art of shooting a bow, that is why in Archer: The Witch’s Wrath we put a lot of pressure on highly realistic mechanics of using the bow. – says Paweł Graniak, the CEO of Image Power S.A.
