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.

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
So refreshing to find a game that’s so cool a take on history, science and people. This is mystery and suspense at it’s sixteenth century best. It’s beautifully crafted visuals and audio are matched by its rich content - a rare treat. Oh and it’s funny too!
Just purchased this game and unfortunately keeps crashing. I haven’t managed to get far with the game. Never had this issue with a game before and this was quite a bit to pay.
Developer Response ,
Please restart your iPad. The game should run afterwards without crashing. Thank you.
