In a sun-bleached barn outside Sacramento California. a group of physicists, shady g-men, grad-students, tourists and an array of amateur explorers and nü-gonzo-revivalist writer-dudes gather around a collection of strange vehicles that resemble lunar landers. Each is painted a garish colour and prepped to "slip" into a crazy new plane of existence.

Your ship is equipped to support its crew and dimensional-shift engines for 24 hours. Your destination: alternate worlds and pocket universes. But you'd better move fast: Miss your window, and you cease to exist.

These are the voyages of the DayTrippers.

DayTrippers is a roleplaying game set in a surrealistic near-future science-fiction multiverse, where an assortment of colorful character classes pilot unique machines into dream worlds and pocket universes to retrieve items of unearthly value and bring them back home. The setting was inspired by the surrealistic fiction of Moebius, Michael Moorcock, Rudy Rucker, Stanley Weinbaum, Jack Vance, and other masters of weirdness.
