Noah Wardrip-Fruin – an American researcher and creator of digital playable games – proposed the word "playable text". He underscored that the right practice to receive certain digital texts is not only to read them, and even to use them, but to play with them, although at the same time these texts are not games*. My realization is only an attempt to experiment with the effects of penetrating the virtual world to the real one.

Schäfer, Transcript, Bielfeld 2007, s. 211. Wardrip-Fruin understood playable text as a variation of a wider phenomenon: playable media, including video games.
