About This Game

Immerse yourself in the captivating realm of "1001 Nights", an AI-native game where language's power shapes new reality...

Drawing inspiration from Wittgenstein's philosophy, "The limits of my language mean the limits of my world", this game delivers an experience where spoken tales come alive as tangible in-game entities.


From Language to Reality!
  • As the heroine Shahrzad, you have the magic that turns other one's language into reality! Guide the King (powered by GPT-4) to weave tales abundant in keywords, such as 'sword', 'knife', or 'shield' ... they materialize as in-game weapons!
  • The new reality from the tales will gradually emerge through cutting-edge AI models! Every story is unique between you and the King — no pre-scripted content!

Get unique weapon cards from your story!
Each weapon collected from the story is unique --- powered by language model GPT-4, each of them gets features and the power value from the story you told with the King! When you told a story about the moon kingdom, your sword may be empowered by the moonlight!
Be creative and collect more weapons ..!

Battle with Items from Your Tale!
Wield the weapons you've conjured to face and challenge the King, in the story world that merged from your tales...
Create a new chapter in Shahrzad's fate, diverging from age-old folklore!


AI-Driven World Creation:
Fueled by a sophisticated AI language model, witness your narrated tales metamorphose into visual realities, merging with the game's pixel art design!
Challenge Traditional Norms:
Embody Shahrzad and defy ancient brutal conventions. This game transcends mere combat; it's a declaration, a revolt. There's no preset narrative from the developers!
Academic Foundations in Gameplay:
"1001 Nights" isn't just a game; it's also an academic research project. Rooted in academic research, we've published two papers in the fields of AI and interactive storytelling during its development. This deep academic integration made it become a novel AI-native game…
Delve deep into every corner of the kingdom, unravel buried mysteries, and craft a brand-new tale of "1001 Nights"...

Crafted from academic research with the paper published—experience the allure of an AI-native game!

AI Generated Content Disclosure

The developers describe how their game uses AI Generated Content like this:

Welcome to '1001 Nights,' a game where your words shape the world! In this unique adventure, players narrate stories, and these tales are continued by a GPT-4 driven character – the King Shahryar. Your task is to cleverly guide the King to utter keywords related to weapons, from a list that includes swords, shields, knives, and more.

As your story progresses, the world described in your tale will emerge. For example, a tale about a 'purple Persian castle' becomes a visual cue for image AI, Stable Diffusion. These images are part of your gameplay, displayed on weapon cards and integrated into the game scene, symbolizing the growth of your story's universe.

The main motivation behind the game is to explore the creative narrative gameplay based on conversational AI. All static game assets are manually made by artists in the team, and only used AI visual to assist minor component, e.g. far background sprite and carpet textures.
