Yeah... you know, when I first read this article yesterday, I was like - "uh, who cares? Many Polish developers have subsiaries, why is this one newsworthy?"

Well, in fact, what is newsworthy about this is precisely that for the first time, the establishing of a subsidiary studio by a Polish games developer was deemed worthy of a Gamasutra update.

By the way, a while back I tried to calculate the overall size (number of people) of the games industry in Poland. My rough estimate was about 1000-1500 people, but possibly much more, since Warsaw alone accounts for at least 500-700. Wrocław, Kraków and the Katowice-Gliwice area are growing rapidly also...
