According to developer Santa Ragione, 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."

Actually, I hate rules. I make them and then I break them and I'm the type of girl who would get in a car alone and drive for days and never miss any of you.
Anyway. Lucky attendees of Fantastic Arcade next month will get to see Wheels of Aurelia's debut.
