Astrologaster is a story-driven comedy game set in Shakespeare’s London, based on a true - and truly ridiculous - story.
London, 1592. A great plague sweeps through the capital. When doctors flee the city in fear, a hero rises. His name is Simon Forman, “Doctor” of Astrology and Physick. Not only does he have the power to cure the sick, he can find their lost pets or even predict their futures, by reading the movements of the stars!
But when the plague ends, Forman’s problems begin. The real doctors return to London and they will stop at nothing to expose Forman as a fraud and bring him down. But Doctor Forman is determined to prove them wrong!
Read the stars - Guide Forman in casting and interpreting real astrological charts.
Solve hilarious problems - Consult on problems ranging from Elizabethan terror plots and foul diseases, to romantic entanglements and stolen pies!
Change Lives - Win your patients’ favour or ruin their lives. Advise 14 characters who return 5-7 times. Patients have their own ongoing stories which often overlap with each other.
Win a medical licence - Convince patients to write letters of recommendations. Collect enough letters to exchange them for a medical licence.
Fully voiced character dialogue - Sitcom-style comedy brought to life by a cast of over a dozen actors.
Sing along - Enjoy Renaissance-era music and sing along to each character’s theme song.
Casebooks come alive - Simon Forman’s cases are presented as a beautiful pop-up book. Turn pages to delve deeper into your patients’ stories.

Ratings and Reviews
Fun but flawed
This is a fun little game that’s rather silly in the best possible English way. However while the characters and happenings are entertaining, it fails as a game for lack of any prediction that can be derived as to how my answers will pan out.
Very often you will find yourself choosing something and getting an entirely different reaction than you ever anticipated, removing player agency and making the game less fun than it could be.
Choose your own adventure?
Like watching a high brow comedy stage play... similar to watching black mirror bandersnatch but it’s not really that interactive to call it w game more like a choose your own adventure book , entertaining though and extremely well written
Verily, ‘tis mirthsome!
Playing through this for the second time, as I didn’t quite attain my medical licence. :-)
Would be nice to have text size, font and colour options though. #accessibility 😊👍🏼
