We’re happy to announce our second grantee, Victorian Murder Mystery! 

Victorian Murder Mystery is a Web3 game that has been in stealth for over a year. They first contacted Findora in 2022 and are excited to deploy on Findora mainnet in 2023. Play the part of the victims or villains in this Agatha Christie meets Among Us meets Web3 game. Someone has been murdered in the mansion, and you must catch the killer – before he or she catches you!


“We’re excited to have Victorian Murder Mystery deploying on Findora this year. The great thing about them is they’re focused on creating a game that is, above all, fun. And they’re using zk and Web3 tech not to make it more complicated but to give the user a better experience. That’s unique for the space.”

— Sam Harrison, Discreet Labs CEO

“We’re interested in offering players the same data protection and security that they’d expect in a web2 game. We think Findora has done a great job in making it easier to be accessible and safe for everyone in web3.”

— Victorian Murder Mystery Developer

Why Build on Findora?

Why did Victorian Murder Mystery choose to build on Findora? Findora’s zk tech was pivotal for them to build the game they actually wanted. A key part of their vision was to allow anyone to host the game. However, the nature of a mystery game requires that:

  1. All players, even the host, must be unaware of who is who and
  2. All players (and observers) must be able to trust the final result matches the initial setup.

That’s where zero-knowledge proofs come in.

Using Findora’s zk technology, not even the host will know players’ in-game identities at the start. And through zk, players can be sure the results have not changed from the outset of the game regardless of who is hosting. It creates a verifiable and trustless environment — perfect for a game where you can’t trust anyone.

“Player Experience Comes First”

Zk doesn’t just allow anyone to host. It’s also essential for providing players with a better experience. “Player experience first,” as the team beheind Victorian Murder Mystery says. 

Through zk technology, they have created a game that Web2 players can hop into, easily understand, and quickly come to love. The point of the game isn’t its Web3 attributes, like DeFi compatibility and NFTs; though those aspects will be obvious, the focus isn’t on those details but rather making something fun.

Victorian Murder Mystery also uses zk to keep player data safe. Due to the public nature of blockchains, Web3 gamers often have less privacy than they would in Web2. But on Findora, gaming dApps can give players the privacy protections they’ve come to rightly expect.
