about

"Embrace the Boss” was a non-interactive 0-player single-loop video game popularly characterized by its strictly decorative controller and first-person POV reverse narrative format in which the “boss” is beat in level 1 and then is soon discovered to be not really a “boss” at all but the actual real-life “player”, the ensuing levels’ objectives mostly having to do with contemplation, understanding, forgiveness, etc. and in the final level, acceptance and ability to “embrace the boss” whereby the game cycles back to the beginning and resumes its loop.
