I have recently thought making a new game after my main computer get fixed. One of the main idea I'm concentrating on is making an infinite open world. I want the player to fully control the world and when he reaches the edge, the game layout just stretch to add more contents and more space in the game. Is that even possible? This idea is inspired by Minecraft where the player just live in infinite world where the world never ends! Since it's 2D not 3D , I just want to add more width to the layout by a global varibable or something. Any ideas? I'll be grateful.
Thanks in advance,

As far as I understand, you just want infinite scrolling, which can be achieve by setting the layout property "unbounded scrolling" to yes.
however, depending on the result you might want, that could imply to learn how to manage a large number of objects that exists in a lot of places.
..But I think ashley said the next blog post would actually talk about this, he talked about that also in this page:
However be sure to have the knowledge to read it and mainly understand it correctly (sentence for every necomer that may just stumble upon this thread).
