Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Players Discover Hilarious Glitch

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Players Discover Hilarious Glitch
15 May

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery has not been available for very long, and like so many other mobile games, there have been teething problems, with players reporting various bugs and glitches. Some of these bugs and glitches are incredibly frustrating, such as the glitch that makes players spend gems. Other technical issues with the game, though, are quite funny, with one problem in particular doing the rounds on social media.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery players have begun to circulate screenshots of one particular scene in which Professor Dumbledore tells players to report “anything odd” to a professor. Somewhat ironically, directly behind Dumbledore, Professor McGonagall can be seen doing a T-pose. Also, her character model is missing her head. Either Dumbledore is completely oblivious or he just has a brilliant sense of humor.

The scene isn’t the only one in which Professor McGonagall glitches out. In the comments of the post, another Tumblr user shares screenshots of the teacher doing the T-pose all elsewhere on the Hogwarts campus. She T-poses in some of her lessons, which is an unorthodox method to teaching to say the least.

Reviews of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery have been less than favorable. Game Rant‘s own review says that the game is especially aggressive with its microtransactions and seems solely designed to push players to spend money in order to progress through the story. While the concerns surrounding the business model seem to be the loudest criticism of the game, other quality issues will only add to players’ frustration.

For example, players have also taken aim at the game’s major plot holes. There are several issues with the game’s lessons not matching up with the game’s storylines, and at some point, Hogwarts Mystery even flat-out ignores the choices made by the player. While the game does offer many choices and is quite large, it’s a quality control problem. So, it’s understandable why some players may be disgruntled with that.

Developer Jam City is planning some major updates to the game that include romance options and new social features, which could potentially mean that the game is introducing multiplayer. The introduction of new features could result in more technical issues, however. While bugs such as Professor McGonagall’s T-pose may be funny, glitches that impact how the game’s features actually work will be less so and players will hope that the developer takes greater care.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is available now for iOS and Android mobile devices.
