Endless Web is a game where a procedural content generator is deeply integrated into the mechanics, dynamics, and aesthetics. The game involves players exploring the generative space of its built-in content generator, by making decisions that influence the parameters to the generator. Players must build strategies around the choices they are making to ensure that levels are at an appropriate level of challenge for them, while simultaneously exploring to discover goals hidden in layers of the generative space.
