Harry Potter Graduates to the Mac
7:46 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media announced this morning that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, the action-adventure game based on J. K. Rowling's best-selling fantasy novel, is heading to the Macintosh.


According to Michael Rogers, President of Aspyr:

We are all big fans of J. K. Rowling's work and look forward to seeing this magical adventure.
Today's announcement seems to have been timed to coincide with the joint release of the PC game and of the Warner Brothers film of Rowling's novel.


Harry Potter, developed for the PC by KnowWonder, is the previously secret "New World" project in development for the Mac at Westlake Interactive. In the game, players assume the role of Rowling's promising young wizard as he enrolls in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
