Ukrainian motifs on the world stage

Recently, the Gameloft team developed the character of a militant Ukrainian woman, which they called the Konotop Witch. The company shared this news on its Instagram page.

The Konotop witch is a legendary figure in Ukrainian folklore. It is said that she was a powerful sorceress who lived in the city of Konotop in eastern Ukraine.

According to legend, the Konotop witch was known for her magical power, which she used to help people in the city. She could heal the sick, predict the future and protect the town from evil. The Conotop Witch was also considered a person of wisdom and knowledge, and many people looked to her for advice and guidance. The legend about her is passed down from generation to generation in Ukrainian folklore. She continues to fascinate and inspire people to this day.

In the game, the Konotop witch is represented by a belligerent Ukrainian girl. She is endowed with powerful super strength. The character is armed with beauty and firepower, able to destroy crowds of enemies with a large explosion similar to cotton. The Idle Siege team has developed the most excellent commander or, more correctly, female commander.
