Astrologaster is a comedy game set in Shakespeare’s London. Play as ‘Doctor’ Simon Forman and treat his patients using astrology. A story-driven adventure based on a truly ridiculous story.
Play as ‘Doctor’ Simon Forman – unlicensed medical professional and astrologer – and help him win a medical licence.
Explore Forman’s life, his work, and his relationships with his clients. Make story choices by performing astrological readings. Choose strategically or make decisions just for fun – but be aware that your choices will have consequences (and unpredictable side effects!)
13 clients come to see you 5-7 times seeking advice for personal, professional and medical problems. By examining the stars in the sky, you diagnose and determine answers for your clients’ problems. As well as affecting the storyline, these choices will alter your clients’ satisfaction levels. Satisfied clients will write you letters of recommendation, and with enough of these letters you can obtain a medical licence from the University of Cambridge.
So-called “real” (licensed) doctors call Forman a quack and fraud. Help Forman prove these medical establishment elitists wrong!
