According to investigators, the damage happened some time during Artix Entertainment's annual "Take Your Kids to Work Day." Personnel at the company discovered that many portions of their website and the game's 3D content had been drawn over in crayon.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Roach

A horse is a horse is a horse, of course. Roach is the name of of Geralt’s horses, each and every one in turn. Not sure why he calls ‘em all that. Lazy? Doesn’t get attached? To animals? Might be because one day he caught a roach, which is a common fresh-water fish. A big one. Decided he’d celebrate by naming his horse after it.
