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. Consult the launch trailer this way:
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:
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.
