    Wheels of Aurelia is an interesting road game, more meaningful if you know the Italian history.

    Wheels of Aurelia is an interesting experiment where the gameplay is not the core of the experience. The nice graphics, the soundtrack and the storytelling makes the latest game from Santa Ragione a compelling journey into the Italian history of the late Seventies.

    Abortion, women's rights and the fight against fascism are just three of the various themes that conduct the player along Wheels of Aurelia, a proud "on the road" adventure that tells about a difficult moment of Italian history. The game is fun, but you must be prepared to live the same dialogues many times to discover all the 16 finals.

    Wheels of Aurelia is an interesting storytelling experiment. It tells the story of fictional characters in the Italian Seventies through a dialogue system with multiple answers. It lasts 20-30 minutes but it has 16 endings.

    Lella’s journey is compelling, and the game itself is unlike anything we’ve seen before.

    It's a shame the journey itself can't match the poignancy of the final destination. [December 2016, p.123]

    The original road trip is crippled with its half-baked design. Atmosphere of the time period is lovely, experience wrapped in it is rather annoying though.
