The act of participating in a system, reflecting on the results and incorporating them into future endeavours. Praxis is the loop of action, analysis and applied learning which turns a set of static rules and objects into a game. While play can broadly be said to be interactive, praxis is the process of interaction; a player’s conscious involvement in a game world.
