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 thorough 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.

My review can be listened to as a short podcast (In German only, sorry.).

Short: I love the game very much for it's round and really unique design. The dialogues could have gone more into depth. But the 70s Italian atmosphere is great through the music and the landscape you drive through. After playing 6 sessions I spent a whole morning just searching for all the teased events in the game (the name of my character Lella, Aldo Moro who was kidnapped, abortion legalization in Italy, etc.).

good game, here is a gameplay sample
