The Doctor is in


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, Astronomy and Physick. Not only does he have the power to cure the sick, he can find their lost pets and predict their futures! All 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 bring him down...


Astrologaster is an astrological comedy game based on the casebooks of real-world historical figure Simon Forman:

  • Guide Forman in casting and interpreting real astrological charts.
  • Help solve patients’ problems that range from Elizabethan terror plots and foul diseases, to romantic entanglements and missing spoons.
  • Expand Forman’s clientele and gain him enough influence and legitimacy to prove the London medical establishment wrong.

Simon Forman was considered a sage by some and a charlatan by others. What will your legacy be? Will you put your faith in the stars?
