Astrologaster has a unique premise, clever presentation, and funny writing. Those elements all work in its favor, but the longer it goes on, the duller it gets. The story fails to make most characters interesting, and the illusion of choice (but without meaningful consequences) creates a sense of futility. It is worth checking out if you want to learn more about Elizabethan history and medicine, but those looking to increase their dosage of compelling narrative experiences should seek treatment elsewhere.

Astrologaster is not a game that is meant to be rushed through. The moving, paper-doll like characters have small quirks and ticks that you notice in their movements and facial features. The dialogue gives you clues into each of the characters’ personalities and hidden motives. The madrigals are cleverly written and satisfying to listen to in between consultations. Even the calming soundtrack in the background does wonders for immersing the stargazer into Dr. Forman’s world, and adds a calm, soothing aura to the game.

Astrologaster plays out like a high-quality radio play that has been brought to life via an interactive pop-up book. The story of Simon Forman is as whacky as it is entertaining; there are highs, there are lows, and there are plenty of laughs to keep you entertained along the way. At times it might feel a little bit bloated, but otherwise, the stars have aligned to create a uniquely engaging and entertaining game that we wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who's even slightly intrigued by the strange but true premise.
