Wide Open Games is playable art

This is an ongoing series of games and writing all examining life within our hearts and guts. Some games will be silly and short, some will be weird and abstract, and some will be heavy and personal. But no matter what, the goal of each is to foster understanding and compassion for ourselves and our world.
