        Subject: Astrologaster, or Simon Forman, the video game

 > From:        Lauren Kassell 

The work of the Casebooks Project has inspired a video game about Simon
Forman, the Elizabethan astrologer physician. Astrologaster
(https://www.astrologaster.com/) is available now on iOS
(https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/astrologaster/id1213121848?mt=8), and
next week (9 May) on PC

It’s funny, naughty, beautiful and cheap. It’s historical and
anachronistic. It’s not like other games: you might like it even if you
don’t play games. Enjoy!
