Global Game Jam®

Global Game Jam®
Local multiplayer game Starwhal: Just the Tip was first created during Global Game Jam 2013 (#ggj13) at Carleton School of Information Technology Ottawa, Canada. The Breakfall team got inspired by #GGJ13 theme 'the sound of a heartbeat' and: "Inspired by countless couch-gaming gatherings over the decades, we wanted to bring something competitive, creative, and immediately fun to the table. Our original prototype was conceived and developed in 48 hours with focus entirely on these areas. STARWHAL: Just the Tip is a simulation of dreams in an ocean of the mind." After initial success the game got its own Arcade cabinet at Fantastic Arcade and was selected for the Gamercamp 2013 & Wild Rumpus showcases.

Monomyth Joseph Campbell's monomyth, or the hero's journey, is a basic pattern that its proponents argue is found in many narratives from around the world. This widely distributed pattern was described by Campbell in The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949).[1] Campbell, an enthusiast of novelist James Joyce, borrowed the term monomyth from Joyce's Finnegans Wake.[2] Campbell held that numerous myths from disparate times and regions share fundamental structures and stages, which he summarized in The Hero with a Thousand Faces: A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.[3] A chart outlining the Hero's Journey.
