A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

A short interactive environment developed for the Wand Works event in the Cotsen Children's Library. Learn more about the context of the event through this lovely blog post!

As the player, you can cast six different spells from the Harry Potter universe, each with its own unique set of visual effects. This interactive environment runs much like a slideshow, requiring just the use of the mouse and the spacebar key. This is a consequence of its specific design for the Wand Works children's event.

Nice graphics, but I wish it was more of a game, not just pressing buttons to cast a spell. Still it was fun to play!

Thanks so much for making this available. I shared it with my kids today and they had a magical experience!

Is there any chance you could make a version available that doesn’t show the controls on the spell menu? My older kid was disappointed when she saw it was me controlling the spells, not her. 




Great game! Would be cool if you could stay in the hall and cast the spells multiple times

how do u unzip file

you can unzip through online or get an application called '7Zip' on the net, however, if you have the inbuilt app called 'WinRAR' then you can use that too


it's pretty fun :)
