London, UK, 18 February 2021 — It was foretold in the stars: the award-winning Shakespearean comedy game Astrologaster is out now on Nintendo Switch! Based on a true story set in 16th century London, the game follows the dubiously-qualified Dr Simon Forman, consulting the stars to advise his patients on everything from love and political intrigue to wacky medical conditions.

Gather as many letters of recommendation as you can from your clients, before “licensed” doctors throw you in jail for being a “quack” and a “fraud”. May the stars guide you on your path to becoming London’s most popular doctor, via a Nintendo Switch near you: https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/astrologaster-switch/
 
Astrologaster is based on Simon Forman’s casebooks and was developed in collaboration with the University of Cambridge’s Dr. Lauren Kassel and her team.
