processes are not acknowl- edged as “entities” (Parisi 2013) with a particular relationship and influence over affect, futurity and the production of reality itself. A critical approach to gamifica- tion is needed considering how it depends, concretely, in the human actions that are encouraged by its affordances and collected as data points for the automation of economic decisions. The choice of theoretical framework corresponds to what Braidotti (2019) has named a “posthuman critical theory”, which for the tenets of brevity is explained here simply as the

temporality: To be interested in multiple scales on which reality is being constantly built, co-constructed, is not a luxury but a necessity for critical theory nowadays. A lot of theory feminist theory realised this early on, similarly some STS. We need to abandon such worn out scales of reference that do not address the currently crucial questions and engage with what are the microscopic – or then planetary level – processes that define issues such as the social. This does not necessarily mean abandoning the important legacy of critical thought for example in

hand a collective entity that guides and on the other hand a collective entity that needs or lets itself to be guided. This is cannot be depicted through notions such as e.g. intersubjectivity that became predominant in the later context of the Critical Theory of Frankfurt School. The relation- ship between the vanguard and the rest is not one of two generalized per- sons interacting or communicating in an intersubjective mode with one an- other. We are not to reduce the collective character of those two entities to a one-dimensional collective or a supra

the case of games and game studies, many have endeavored to bring about change through the practice of making games. However, in this paper I wish to examine the revolutionary potential of how we may play games. Play, both within natural and virtual space, is something that we are all ostensibly capable of doing in some form, which cannot be said for the work of either Wark’s gamer theorist who must read and understand critical theory or designers who must know how to code and have access to costly technologies. Rather than offering an account of the

Life is already science fiction-y enough, really. Just depends on what end of the telescope you happen to be peering through. We can’t right recollect at what point our tangential experience of Black Sci- ence Fiction coalesced into hard critical theory. Maybe it was the day Samuel Delany’s interstellar space-opera NOVA arrived in the mail via The Science Fiction Book Club of America. Or those mornings we woke up to find H. Rap Brown, El- dridge Cleaver or Stokely Carmichael sleeping on our mama’s living room couch in Dayton, Ohio. Or could it have been the
