Try something new - create a meta game within the month of March!

What are 'meta' games?

Simply put, metagames are games about games. More specifically, metagames are games that:
    • comment on / deconstruct / parody / satire game design, game mechanics, games development, or game culture; and/or
    • heavily feature the use of meta-references (such as breaking the fourth-wall) or other metafiction elements; and/or
    • provide a level of abstraction above an existing 'game' (e.g. gamification, ARGs, analysing opponents/strategies in esports)
