Nothing but exploration.

NOTHING ELSE begun as a game idea from my friend: a computer program has to go around and survive. Things like finding a power source, code to eat, data to consume, and output to place. That kinda thing. From that idea and making a quick prototype I started to think about exploration games; Why do they have maps, or a preset world at all? Randomly generated terrains work, but they stay the same, you can return to the same old, already discovered place.

So NOTHING ELSE is only about exploring new places. The world that exists is the screen, anything outside of your vision and intractable area gets deleted, and if you move the world gets generated around you. You could move down a hallway, turn around, and have an open area to move around, or be stopped by a dead end. Go in circles and keep seeing new terrain.
