Concept

In this realm, the look and feel of this world is of 100% happiness. There are elements that are mixed in with that symbolize what to come but as far as the atmosphere goes, the styling is colorful and vibrant. It needs to be a pure contrast in atmosphere to the next realm "Shock". Time can be unrealistic, like a dream where each scene is merged together with the next, no coherent line of thought.

Slumber - the state innocent and naive being where Chaos is a distant unknown. Alice is in Slumber (literally and metaphorically) the night of the fire. Before going to bed she had a family, a home, and was ensconced in a beautiful illusion. She wakes to Shock - the sound of her family screaming - the old reality shattered by Chaos and cracked open into a new and terrifying place where monsters rule. This is Bumby’s reality though Alice won’t understand that for many years to come. To communicate Shock effectively we must strongly establish the tranquility of Slumber. The first section of the game probably takes place in and around Alice’s home prior to the fire. Alice and Lizzie outside, building a snowman, establishing place and mood via chat and play. Hints of something lurking in the shadow, of the presence of Dr. Bumby in their lives, etc. What remains of Wonderland needs to be floating around this central core. Each of the areas of Wonderland will be a floating island - broken pieces of the world as it was before. The Realm is more of a cinematic world, an introduction of Alice's life before the trauma. There are no moves, enemies or anything to be learned from this world to the player, just walk around and stuff happens. Much like London in Alice madness returns.
