Astrologaster is a story-driven comedy game set in Shakespeare’s London.
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!
Astrologaster is based on a true - and truly ridiculous - story.

Ratings and Reviews
Refreshingly Original, Smart and Hilarious
The writing in this game is some of the best you will see in gaming. I expect them to win an award for this. And the highly detailed production of songs and the singers is a marvel. The graphics are suitable for this style of game and it really shows to the strength of quality of writing and characters that the game is engrossing and enjoyable with such minimal graphics. The jokes are funny and intelligent even when disguising dirty jokes :) . And the best surprise is that they incorporated topical social and political commentary as well.
Whether you think this game is for you or not, I can’t think of any person not finding this game extremely entertaining. Props to the devs for trying something so bizarre and new, and obviously making it all work so ‘verily’ well.
brilliant game!! & a laugh riot!!
This is one of the most delightful games I’ve ever encountered—a marvelous deep dive into Elizabethan England. The dialogue is absolutely hilarious, with great voice acting (the many different British accents are to die for), and a splendid Renaissance soundtrack too, made up of beautiful songs with really funny lyrics about game characters. So much work has gone into this, it’s amazing... Though of course the most important thing is that it’s just a blast to play—I can’t stop laughing! ;)
Brilliant writing and storytelling. This doctor was such a quack! I can’t believe that people put so much faith in astrology to make decisions but I guess people today still visit mediums and card readers for advice. Only been playing for a few hours so far and can’t put it down. Love the pop up story book style and the voice over is a nice touch. Highly recommend this game!!
