Like so much in game dev, the decision to use procedural generation in your game is a double-edged sword. While it provides a theoretically unlimited amount of content, you sacrifice the advantages of your game being bespoke and hand-crafted. The goal, then, is to craft tools that can turn out procedural content in near infinite quantities and configurations while making that content feel as close to homemade as possible. To explore some different approaches to that problem, Gamasutra reached out to a number of devs with experience working with procedural tools and asked about how they thought about different methods of content generation, and how they avoid making procedural content that feels banal and recycled.

I probably don't need to remind you that life can be a busy, unpredictable, and sometimes uncontrollable series of events; a frenetic balancing act, as you juggle your time between work, family, friends, recreation, health, and a billion other things all at once. As someone currently tasked with organising a Stag Do, I am particularly attuned to how hard it can be to get several people together in the same place at once, but video games are asking us to do this all the time. Last year, Star Trek: Bridge Crew's playability banks on four friends each owning a PS4 or high end PC, a VR headset, and their own separate copy of the game, and that's before having to find a good time to play together when every person is available for at least an hour or more. 1-2 Switch brandished a AAA price tag for an experience that can only really be enjoyed at social gatherings or parties tame enough to bring your new Ninty console out without fear of it getting trampled or splattered with alcohol.
