In fantastic double-plus-meta fashion, video of the game — which takes place in the minutes leading up to the Game Developer Choice Awards as Schafer scrambles for jokes he hasn’t yet written — was used to lead in the actual Game Developer Choice Awards, as the real life Schafer was backstage basking in the glow of his own green room portrait.
