Wheels of Aurelia is a narrative road trip game set in the roaring Italian 70s. Half racing game, half interactive fiction, it tells the story of Lella, a restless woman driving on the roads of the western coast of Italy, the famous Via Aurelia.
Wheels of Aurelia plays like an old-school isometric arcade racer, except that you get to chat with your passenger while driving. The story takes places at the end of the 70s – a time of terrorism, kidnappings, and political turmoil in Italy – and it will introduce you to that world and its dynamics through a cast of characters that you have never met in a video game. It's up to you to discover their motivations for driving along the coast of Italy and away from their homes.
Based on your choices – and the places you'll decide to visit – you may end up in car chases, illegal street races, or in tense debates that will make you wonder who your travel companions really are.
