STORY AND DIALOGUES FOR Wheels of Aurelia
a narrative road trip game BY SANTA RAGIONE set in the roaring Italian 70s
Half racing game, half interactive fiction, "Wheels of Aurelia" by Italian micro game design studio Santa Ragione tells the story of Lella, a restless woman driving on the roads of the western coast of Italy, the famous Via Aurelia.
It 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; based on your choices, 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.
A game by Santa Ragione, Story and Dialogues by We Are Müesli.
