Abstract

This special issue outlines a new model capable of encompassing the complexity of contemporary digital ecosystems: the ‘megadungeon’. The articles included in this collection approach the megadungeon model from different angles and scales, contributing to an exploratory, speculative, and necessarily partial mapping of this media theoretical framework.
