WizardWorks Software was a video game developer and publisher located in Minneapolis, MN. Focused on casual consumer games sold through mass-merchants like Target and Wal-Mart, WizardWorks was best known for publishing the Deer Hunter series of video games developed by Sunstorm Interactive, but also made expansion packs for games such as Doom and Duke Nukem 3D, and developed/published other titles. By 1996, WizardWorks Inc. sold software under the WizardWorks, CompuWorks, and MacSoft labels.

In 1996, WizardWorks was acquired by GT Interactive Software, and was eventually combined with other GT Interactive holdings in Minneapolis to form GT Interactive's Value Products Division. WizardWorks continued as label through a subsequent corporate acquisition by Infogrames which later became Atari.

In 2004, Atari closed the Minneapolis office, folding outstanding projects into the Beverly, MA office.[1]
