    How about mimesis and games?

    The link is to an essay from Usenet, “Crimes Against Mimesis”, about text adventure games. (The real crime is the color scheme used for the HTML. Email me for a sane version.) I don’t know if the sense of ‘mimesis’ here is at all related to how you’re using it, but every time I see you post about mimesis, I think of this essay.

    There’s also a text adventure called “Sins Against Mimesis”, presumably inspired by this essay, which has lots of interactive-fiction community in-jokes.
