I am psyched for this game. An action RPG set in the Potter universe where you get to create your character, pick your House, master spells, and make moral choices that affect the story all while exploring Hogwarts and the surrounding environs? Sign me up.

The developers have also distanced themselves from JKR since she has attacked the transgender community and have said she has no input on the game.

Ah - you already mentioned the one thing making me somewhat leary of picking this us.  Putting more money in JKR's coffers these days is not something I'm super-eager to do.  But it does look like a fun game, and I feel for the devs who've probably been working on this since well before she got so "problematic".

So yeah, I'll probably pick it up, too.

I felt the same as you. However, JKR has probably already gotten paid for the game so my not buying it won't hurt her at all. It will hurt the devs more. Plus, while she has shown a surprisingly bigoted side of herself, her books and the Harry Potter franchise are all about tolerance, respect, and doing the right thing even when it is hard.

Also, I think it would be fun to join Slytherin and then be an absolutely moral, do-gooder type of character.
