You have an admirable sense of humor. I'm just very afraid of those that would admire it.
In all honesty, what I tried to express earlier is somewhat being forgotten in the discussion.
People, and more precisely, players, that want to enjoy the "thing" that is made by the project, need to download a binary and start it. If they can't download "the thing" then the whole project is meaningless, since the only reason to do this whole project is "so that players can play it".
By definition, "the thing" they download is "a game". You can argue high and low whether in an academic setting you would call it a neotechnical post-software graphics self indulgence pleasuring cooperative social protocol, or a bowl of petunias, but what you call it is irrelevant outside this academic setting.
What is relevant is that humans still think that LCD watches are a neat idea. What also is relevant is that people downloading "the thing" is that they understand that it allows them to "play the thing" and the best word describing "the thing that allows you to play the thing", is, in an inexplicably weird and contorted way, that best word is "game".
So, you see, you are entitled entirely to call it what you want, and this does not conflict with the fact that the best thing for "us" to call it on the website is "a game".
Please, continue to enjoy your bowl of petunias!
