This jam is now over. It ran from 2016-08-13 04:00:00 to 2016-08-19 00:00:00. View 8 entries

This jam is about leaving the familiar behind and finding yourself in world that is deeply other. Things do not appear or behave as expected. Your long-held models of how the world works are useless here. Old stalwarts like physics and logic may not even have survived the trip intact.

On one hand, your world is re-enchanted and your eyes are wide, but, on the other, you're not on solid footing. You have to figure out how to even be in this world before you can do what you came here to do.

This is a pivotal point in many variants of the Hero's Journey, and an amazingly fun place to be in a narrative. Here are some examples:

Alice in Wonderland

The Matrix

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
