Yes, you read it correctly. Video games about video games… Sounds weird but there are many games like that out there!
Got two different game style about this unique genre. First one is a video game development game where you play as a developer. The second style is a game set in a video game. So, I didn’t know what kind of video games about video games are you looking for and included both styles. Hope you enjoy both or at least one style.
Games in games, creating games in games, all mind boggling… But that’s what makes these kinds of games fun!

7. There is No Game: Wrong Dimension
Evoland is based on the concept of tracing the evolution of video games. When the game begins, there are only four colors, simple pixelated graphics, and a 2D character. Through the adventure, the player gradually unlocks new graphics, new technologies and new gameplay until reaching the HD age and a three-dimensional world. This evolution in-game of video game history is punctuated by many references to classic role-playing games and movies.
In CrossCode, players primarily control a mute character named Lea as she plays a fictional massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) known as CrossWorlds. It takes place in a physical environment on the moon Shadoon, where players control artificial “Avatars” that can regenerate at will and interact with in-game attacks and items.
