You can choose to be good, or succumb to your evil history, with every action; both paths unlock and lock unique quests and dialog options.
The game includes a lot of references to Islamic texts (there are 20ish achievements to unlock, and each includes a reference to a canonical text about that achievement). Plus, it’s stuffed with Islamic references:
- The basis is a story from history / Islamic origin
- One quest-line that deals with jinns (powerful invisible creatures with super speed, super strength, and can possess humans)
- In-game items for honey and a quest for black seed, both of which have medicinal uses rooted in Islamic texts
- All the characters (good and bad) have Muslim/Arabic names
- A quest related to praying, and another to seeking knowledge, which are highly respectable acts in Islam
- Actions related to grave-worship, praying to dead people (grave sins in Islam), and statue-breaking
I think that’s what I like about the game. It’s straight-forward, not preachy.
