Whirlight - No Time To Trip is a laugh-out-loud, time-traveling, point-and-click adventure that blends traditional genre staples with an eclectic mix of gameplay styles.

Whirlight - No Time To Trip pays homage to point-and-click paragons like Sam & Max, Day of the Tentacle and Monkey Island while revitalizing the genre through a distinct look. Characters and backgrounds are originally created as 3D assets first, then rendered in 2D to maintain a high visual quality to pop among other modern takes. The result is an immersive and unpredictable spectacle fit for veteran players and newcomers alike.

In the heart of Verice Bay, a brilliant idea takes shape in the hands of an eccentric inventor and an eclectic artist. Follow Margaret and Hector in a point-and-click graphic adventure that will take you to the edge of space and time to help them avert imminent danger.

Hector is weird. His brilliance is matched only by his misfortune, and so his every creation turns out to be a failure. But just when his creative streak seems to have run out, his most amazing idea ever knocks on his door. To finish his new invention, Hector will have to explore the suggestive Verice Bay. However, right on the verge of achieving his goal, more trouble arises: what was supposed to be the solution to all his problems turns out to be a leap into the unknown. Fortunately this leads him to meeting Margaret, a strong and determined artist and a perfect travelling companion. Together they will embark on a series of adventures through space and time, amidst bizarre characters and unlikely situations, until they foil an imminent threat that looms over the entire world.

This epic journey takes place in a universe where humor, fantasy and time travel come together with breathtaking hand-drawn graphics. The game's fun, cartoony atmosphere is reminiscent of classics like "Day of the Tentacle" and "Sam & Max Hit the Road," immersing you in a feat of color, bizarre situations and hilarious dialogue.

A must-play experience for lovers of graphic adventures and for anyone who enjoys unique and unforgettable gaming experiences!

“Whirlight will stand out in the point-and-click adventure genre by offering both a nostalgic nod to the past and a fresh, modern gaming experience,” says Ciro Camera, co-founder at imaginarylab. “We are incredibly excited to build on what we’ve learned from Willy Morgan and the Curse of Bone Town and present players with unprecedented depth and diversity, be it in the form of visuals, gameplay, narrative, and more. Longtime point-and-click fans won’t be disappointed.”

Whirlight - No Time To Trip is coming to PC (Steam) in 2025, with Nintendo Switch, PS4/PS5, and Xbox platforms to follow.
