"After his early glimpse into the Plus/4 scene with Innuh's Pyramid, a classic theme for an adventure game, Davide Bucci returns with a brand new interactive fiction, this time set during the roaring times of steam engines, when the automotive technology at its very first stages still was surrounded by the aura of heroism and bravery. And if you were a young lady in a world of engineers, the bravery was double!
Two Days to the Race has been developed with Adventure Writing System (AWS) coded by Aristide Torrelli; after the game has been completed, Davide has converted into a C source, in order to be exported to several different 8bit platforms, including C64, ZX Spectrum and... C128. This process opens a brand new way to modern adventure games' development.
Just like the author did for the previous game, Two Days to the Race V1.6 Final has been released in both English and Italian languages (translated by Alessio Colopardi, this latter one being on V1.5 state yet, will be completed in the very next days). Luca/FIRE added some code and music in the intro, and packed up the final release.
...Beware! This interactive fiction game features some password given at the most significant moments of the story, so write'em down somewhere. And if you will obtain the final password once the game has been completed, you can write to the author, to be included in the Winners' List printed on the official site [listed above in the first message].
