Wheels of Aurelia - October 19th - Interactive Italian Road Trip

Hi! As it is now tradition for us, I wanted to personally announce our next project on the TA boards.

It's Wheels of Aurelia, coming next Thursday, an interactive road trip set in Italian 70s.

The interface is really mobile-friendly, it's designed to be comfortably playable with one hand in portrait mode letting you decide how much you want to engage in the driving or just focus on the story and dialogue.

Wheels of Aurelia will launch at $3.99 with no IAPs, and is available in 7 languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, and of course Italian.

Can't wait to hear what you think when you get to play it! Meanwhile, here is our announcement GIF. Will post more in the next few days!


I'm also here to answer any question on the game or the dev process you might have!

Cheers,

Pietro

Hey, the game will be premium, priced $3.99.

For the screen ration, we did try landscape on mobile but it just does not work with the balloon positioning and the rest of the interface, so we decided to stick do portrait only.

The game is playable in landscape (and only landscape) on iPad tho!

Looks fascinating. What genre is this? Racing, adventure, puzzle, exploration...? 'Cause it looks like it could be any of them (or all of them!). I'll be keeping an eye on this for sure.

If I had to frame it in an established genre I would say that Wheels of Aurelia is closer to visual novel than to an adventure game. It's definitely not racing! All the driving in the game is at the service of the story and its branches and the scenery, although there are some surprises!

New gif!
