Abstract

This paper proposes the notion of “meta-literacy”, understood as the player´s ability to navigate between spheres of reality and/or cross boundaries when interacting with a gameworld. We examine how meta-aesthetics functions in videogames and argue that it is relevant at both the fictional level (intertextual literacy) and at the ludic level (self-referential literacy).
