The game is a rebellious version of the Arabian folklore collection, One Thousand and One Nights, enabled by machine learning. A player can write stories with the AI, then use the words in the story to get armed.

In the game, a player will act as the girl Scheherazade. Each night, the player has to tell tales to the Sasanian King to postpone the execution, and the king will continue your story in turns. Scheherazade has a special ability to turn words into reality: When the king’s continuation contains words like “sword”, “knife” or “shield”, those objects will materialize and drop on your hand. This allows your character to fight the king. If you defeat him you will save yourself and the other characters from execution. 


To Play: Just type your story and wait for the King's continuation!

To fight with him, lead him to mention weapons you need, like "sword" "knife" or "shield". The most convenient way is to write something like "To fight with the demon, the soldier pull out...".

It keeps crashing on my PC every time I open It

Hi there, sorry to hear that. May I ask what system are you using...? And is there any warning pop up when you meet that?

Thank you so much for letting me know! I will try to fix it : )

Show post...

cool...hope look full game

Thank you for this amazing playthrough!!

I recommend using longer and more detailed sentences like "A princess bringing a sword to fight with the demon". Wining the king is not a necessary goal, but a natural result when you create good stories. But still, thank you so much for playing!!

Unfortunately the game doesn't work, it's on a endless loading cycle.

Sorry for that... Now I update it! Welcome to have a try!
