Over at A Kingdom Is, Abstract Machine has written a poetic and evocative freeform essay on the influence of Nørwegian Style, and the unique feel of roleplaying games that involve a surrealistic dimension. The games he discusses in this context are: The Society of Dreamers by Matthijs Holter, Itras By by Ole Peder Giæver and Martin Bull Gudmundsen, and DayTrippers.
COMING IN 2016...
On 12 Dec, Tod Foley ran an exhibition game of DayTrippers for the Rolling Boxcars blog, authored by Keith Mageau. In this 3+ hour game, characters played by Keith Mageau, Tesla Ranger and Lloyd Gyan risked their fictional lives, appearing in the top-rated surreality show of 2115: HyperSurvive!
David Guyll, co-creator of A Sundered World, has written a review of the DayTrippers GameMasters Guide on his blog, Points of Light. He and co-author Melissa Fisher do seem to be quite pleased with the Generators and narrative structure systems.

Over at A Kingdom Is..., Abstract Machine has written a short non-review of DayTrippers, and created three highly atypical characters for your perusal. This is a great test of the flexibility of the DayTrippers Character Building rules, and I have to say, I'd run any of these characters! It's possible to imagine a DayTrippers session (or a whole campaign!) for each of them...
While working on the DayTrippers GameMasters Guide, I put together an online version of the mission generation system to test the generators in combination. Now I'm sharing it with you. This script (click link below) generates a random Mission, and if required by that Mission, it also generates a random Star, a Planet, a Location and a Lifeform. Infinite worlds await your exploration!
