Procedural generation is an interesting topic to me, as it forgoes traditional level design in favor of a bunch of formulas, rules, and random elements to make varied replayable gameplay.

One of my favorite procgen games is Dwarf Fortress, and how it creates a fully realized world with lore and history, and then places both fortress and adventures as relatively small stories in said world.

Also Deep rock galactic is great in varying its caves, from normal tunnels to massive caverns that you can only traverse using ziplines and platforms

Any other interesting procgen games?

    Been playing Ravenswatch with have procgen. I believe the shape of the map is always the same, but the placement of enemies and map elements is all different. Procgen aside, I actually think it’s a very compelling game, it’s extremely fun solo and even better with friends. Currently it’s in early access but is constantly being worked on, they added a new hero to play in it’s most recent update.
