I thought it might be nice to have a glitch monster who pokes random values into core memory -- you have to get out before the level is no longer completable. Although -- there's always the chance it will poke an exit index into the map right in front of you.
Or: a superhero game set in a city riddled with corruption. (wakawaka)
I imagine you could have controlled randomness to make glitchy levels less likely to create things you don't want. Like limit it's range so that it always misses the real exit and doesn't spawn certain things.
Maybe you can make it impossible for the game to spawn a working exit after the level first starts?
